Types of eye injuries

Unfortunately, about 2.4 million eye injuries occur in the country each year, with a quarter of those coming from blunt trauma, according to the National Research Council.

 

Patients at our medical center depend on our doctors’ expert skills for emergency eye care. This is especially true of professional athletes where perfect sight is critical. Two of our satisfied patients include Los Angeles Lakers Lebron James and Anthony Davis.

 

The majority of eye injuries happening to laypeople occur at home, work, or when participating in sports. 

  •  Corneal abrasion. This is a scratch or defect on the surface of the cornea from something like a poke in the eye with a tree branch.
  • Traumatic iritis. This type of injury is caused by a blow to the eye from something like a club or fist. When this injury occurs, the iris becomes inflamed.
  • Orbital fractures. This serious injury occurs when an object such as a racquetball or fist breaks the facial bones that surround the eye.
  • Cuts to the cornea or sclera. This injury, typically caused by sharp things such as metal and glass, requires immediate medical attention from one of our eye doctors.
  • Retinal tear. This injury may be caused by age, prior eye surgery, or nearsightedness. This happens when the gel inside the eyeball pulls on the retina and tears it. This is a medical emergency.
  • Sudden appearance of floaters accompanied by flashes. This can indicate a serious eye problem, especially in older adul
