Chemical Burn

  • While pouring liquid drain cleaner down a sink, or adding acid to your pool some of the chemical splashes up in your face, hitting you squarely in the eye.  Chemical injuries don’t just happen in the workplace. Most homes have dozens of everyday products that pose tremendous danger to vision if they contact the eye.
  • Keep chemicals well away from children and take extreme care when handling dangerous fluids.
  • The severity of the injury is related to the corrosiveness of the chemical.
  • Immediate wash out with tap water is critical to limit the damage.
