Good vision is vital in most occupations and for many recreational and other kinds of activities. Good vision is necessary to follow a computer monitor, watch television, play a video game, or read a dial, a book, a newspaper, a simple dinner menu, the label on a can of food or the directions for assembling a child’s toy. Thus, injury to one’s eyes can be devastating.
Trauma is a common source of injuries to the eye. Injuries can affect the eyelid, the outer surface of the eye, the cornea and the tear duct. Injuries can also affect the inner eye, the aqueous and vitreous humors, fluids in the eye, the retina, the optic nerve or the portion of the brain the controls vision.
Eye injuries are always serious and require immediate, professional medical care. Failure to obtain prompt medical attention may result in the loss of vision. Therefore, time is always of the essence when dealing with an eye injury.
If you or a loved one got an eye injury due to someone else’s negligence, you might have the right to compensation.
