Do you need to find out more about the dangers of getting paint in your eyes? If so, read on. If you get oil-based paint in your eyes, you need to wash it away with clean water straight away and use a clean cloth to dry it. A warm compress can help you reduce discomfort, as can eye drops. If you fail to act quickly enough, you could experience a serious medical condition or even go blind. If there are large amounts of paint, poisoning can occur. When symptoms persist after you have taken these steps, you will need to see a medical professional.

Long-term health issues
It’s the ingredients used to make spray paints that make them so hazardous. Spray paints feature various dangerous chemicals including volatile organic compounds. Aerosol burns are also common for people who work with paint, and long-term health problems can occur as a result of regular exposure to VOCs. These conditions include asthma, central nervous system damage, kidney damage, liver damage and some forms of cancer.
