March is Workplace Eye Wellness Month and Eye Donor Awareness Month
In the Workplace
While working each day, almost 2000 people injure their eyes. One third of these injuries require a visit to the emergency room. Three out of five workplace eye injuries occur because proper eye protection is not being worn. When working in or around a harmful environment, proper eye protection should be worn at all times to help prevent eye injury, no matter how minor or serious.
Being an Eye Donor
Have you ever considered becoming an eye donor upon death? Anyone can be an eye donor regardless of age, quality of vision or a history of cataracts. If you wish to give someone else the gift of sight, it is important to inform family members of your wishes. Below is a website that contains additional information about being a donor.
