5 ways to protect your eyes while making your yard look beautiful this spring:
More than 90 percent of eye injuries can be prevented by simply taking a few precautions and wearing safety glasses. Most eye injuries occur by foreign matter, such as metal chips, dirt particles, and splinters rubbing or abrading the eye. Less commonly, these particles can strike and sometimes even penetrate into the eye. Other hazards include chemicals, adhesives, tools and lawn equipment. The eyes can be damaged by sun exposure too, not just chemicals, dust or objects, so make sure to wear UV protecting sunglasses while outdoors. Whether you are a professional landscaper or you mow your own lawn, don’t forget to protect your eyes while you work in the yard this spring and summer!
