Eye Injuries
The eyes are our windows to the universe. These wondrous but delicate organs are protected by the bony socket which contains them. They are additionally protected by the lids which can close the eyes in a’blink’. However, inspite of the protection that nature has provided, the eyes are vulnerable to injury from various agents around us.
The common sources of injury are:
Mechanical
  • Blunt (balls, fists, corner of furniture)
  • Sharp objects (pencils, pens, scissors,knives, sticks, sewing or knitting needles, etc.)

Chemical
   Holi colours, acids and alkalis in the laboratory or bathroom cleaners, or plant juices)
Thermal: Hot liquids.
