Causes of Vision Loss

Vision loss can be devastating, because it can have a serious effect on an individual's ability to carry out their everyday tasks. Every day in the U.S., about 2,000 workers receive medical treatment as a result of the eye injuries they sustained while at work. This number is high because workplace injury is one of the leading causes of eye trauma, vision loss, disability, and blindness.

Vision loss in the work place could be the result of a one-time, sudden occurrence such as an explosion, chemicals or another dangerous substance getting into the eyes. Blindness could also result from a brain injury that was sustained in the workplace. In addition, vision loss could develop over time; for example, due to long-term exposure to welding equipment, smoke, or fumes.

Some occupations put employees at a higher risk of vision loss than others. These include:

  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Mining
  • Carpentry
  • Auto repair
  • Electrical work
  • Plumbing
  • Welding
  • Maintenance

These occupations are higher-risk because workers are exposed to hazards such as flying fragments, large chips, hot sparks, optical radiation, splashes from molten metals, objects, particles, and glare.
