Tips From Phenix City's Eye Doctor - Eye Injuries With Children

Treating Injury To Child's Eyes

A recent article from Health Day News offers parents some great tips for dealing with children who sustain an injury to their eye.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology offers these suggestions:
  • Never put pressure on, rub or touch an injured eye.
    If there is debris in a child's eye, raise the eyelid and have the child blink quickly. If that doesn't remove the object, seek immediate treatment. Never attempt to remove anything from a person's eye.
  • Don't use an ointment in the eye.
  • Carefully cover any puncture wound or cut, then seek immediate treatment.
  • If a chemical splashes into the eye, flush it with lots of water. Do not use this method for any other type of eye injury.
