Ocular trauma can be an unexpected and devastating event. Trauma to the eye is a common cause of vision loss, especially if it isn’t treated urgently. These injuries can range from minor to severe and can affect the eye and surrounding tissue and bone structure.
There are several ways to injure an eye, including falls, car accidents, assaults, flying debris, and chemical injury. Particularly dangerous activities include paintball and hammering metal. We encourage everyone in Sarasota and Manatee County to use appropriate safety goggles during risky activities to prevent eye trauma.
