    Eye injuries: Eye pain


    Eye injuries can be a nasty thing to get. They can cause blurriness, double vision or worse, loss of vision. But, you may not realise you have an eye injury straight away as it can start off with a bit of eye pain which some people simply get when they are tired.

    Why do people get eye pain?

    There are several reasons why people get eye pain; a foreign object may have become lodged in their eye, they could have hit their eye, or maybe even strained it. A common cause of eye pain is staring at a digital screen for too long which can cause not only eye pain but headaches as well. This often happens in offices, as workers are looking at computer screens all day every day. This is when accidents at work happen.

    If I get eye pain through an accident at work injury how can I make it better?

    If you have only had the pain for a while the best thing to do is to take a break from the computer and focus on an item away from technology. This will help relax your eye muscles and hopefully will ease the pain. But, if this does not help then you need to seek medical advice as soon as possible, as it could be something serious. It may be simply that you need to be prescribed glasses but it could be something more serious such as a bleed or a ruptured vessel.

    Suffering an accident at work injury is certainly not enjoyable and if you don’t have an understandable boss it can be difficult. But, always be open with them and if you are in pain tell them so that they are aware and have a chance to help you before it becomes an accident at work claim.

    But, if you have had or have an accident at work or at home which wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a compensation claim. Speak to Accident Advice Helpline to find out how.
