People who work around chemicals, batteries, or other irritants may suffer burns to the eyes due to splattering, splashing or rubbing the eyes when chemicals are on their hands. Extended exposure to ultraviolet light can cause ultraviolet keratitis. Welders are commonly exposed to this injury.
Lacerations to the eyes are a common injury for individuals who work around certain tools, or other sharp objects; moreover, people working at heights are prone to fall accidents with damages to the facial area. Additionally, those who work in an area with dust, sand, dirt, or grit can suffer corneal abrasion, which causes the eyelid (when closing) to scrape the abrasive material across the cornea.
Eye abrasion injuries are particularly common in jobs that require sawing, sanding, cutting, grinding, shredding, or the handling of broken down material.
