Blurred vision can kill you. Eye injuries and eye irritation account for 85% of reported workplace injuries and the number one symptom is blurred vision. Blurred vision can affect productivity, it can disorient you and it can compromise your safety on the job.
Unfortunately, many workplace first aid measures for eye injuries can themselves cause blurred vision. Most workplace eye washes and safety eye wash stations require that you aim a steady stream of water, or chemical solution, into your eyes for several minutes. The result is blurred vision sometimes as bad or worse than the original blurred vision that prompted you to use the eye wash station. That’s why too many workers avoid eye wash stations.
Worse, if there has been an explosion, or the building is on fire, the last thing you want is to be compromised by blurred vision – especially from something meant to help you.
The good news is that there is a new generation of safety eye wash systems that do not cause blurred vision. Except in extreme situations, when eyes are irritated or injured, you no longer have to shoot a jet of anything into your eyes and you no longer have to flood your eyes with inconvenient and difficult to apply eye drops.
The new generation eye application is a simple, gentle spray that washes away foreign particles and substances and stimulates natural tearing, without discomfort, without distributing the ocular tear film, without wasting 10 to 15 minutes or your valuable time, without blurred vision, and usually without even getting you wet.
