Know your eyes
Your eye is made up of six main areas; the cornea, the iris, the pupil, the lens, the retina and the optic nerve. Each separate part of your eye works to enable you to see. There are common injuries that happen regularly, these include:
- A high pressure blow to the eye – a violent punch of and sporting injury where the ball has hit the eye. This type of injury is known medically as a traumatic uveitis. This means the middle section of the eye, the uvea, has become inflamed.
- Foreign objects in the eye – a sudden gust of wind can cause a small fragment of wood, metal or other material to get stuck in the eye. This can sometimes cause a scratch on the surface of the eye. A scratch on the surface of the eye can be very irritable, causing the victims to rub the eye constantly and the eye to water continuously.
- Allergic reactions – Sometimes people can be unaware they are allergic to a product until they come to use it; be it shampoo, face wash or moisturiser. Allergic reactions can cause your eyes to become extremely swollen, itchy, sore and watery. Very extreme reactions will need medical attention.
Your eye works by filtering light through the pupil. Light with bounce of the object you are looking at and into your eye, enabling you to see anything in sight. The lens within your eye focuses the light onto the back of your eye (the retina). As you can tell, each area of your eyes plays a vital part in your ability to see. If you suffer an accident to any one part of your eye it can cause your eyes to completely stop working or can cause constant irritation to the eye.
How an Eye Injury can affect your Life
Imagine losing the sight in one or both of your eyes. How would you manage? How would you be able to continue your current way of living?
People can sometimes take their eyesight for granted. It’s your eyes that help you learn and develop throughout your life. If you then suffer an eye injury that causes you to lose your sight then you deserve to claim compensation as living without sight can be difficult. It will completely change your current way of living.
Eye injury accident not only affects the victim of the accident but also affects the loved ones. You will have to take a considerable amount of time off work to adapt to your new way of living and in some cases the victim may never be able to return to work. Losing your sight can affect your life is many ways:
- You may have to have your home adapted in a way that allows the victim to manoeuvre the home with ease.
- You may need to get a guide dog.
- You may have to give up work.

All of the factors that come along with the traumatic experience of losing your sight can cause your life to become difficult. On top of the eye injury people often suffer money worries.
