Causes of Eye Injury

There are numerous instances in which an individual sustains a serious eye injury through no fault of their own. While most cases of personal injury result in physical, emotional, and financial losses, eye injury and vision loss victims find the consequences even more devastating. Some causes of eye injury and vision loss include, but are not limited to:

  • Defective Airbags – A faulty airbag could damage the eye or fail to protect the eye from injuries.
  • LASIK Surgery - LASIK surgery errors or optometry mistakes could result in eye injury and vision loss.
  • Automobile Accidents – The blunt force and/or trauma of a motor vehicle accident could lead to severe eye injuries.
  • Contact Lens Solution - Bausch & Lomb's defective contact lens solution as well as other drugs can pose serious risks to the eyes.
