Video Introduction

This video is adapted from 10.3390/vision7020032

The surface of the eye is directly exposed to the external environment, protected only by a thin tear film, and may therefore be damaged by contact with ambient particulate matter, liquids, aerosols, or vapors. In the workplace or home, the eye is subject to accidental or incidental exposure to cleaning products and pesticides. Organic matter may enter the eye and cause infection. Ocular surface damage can trigger a range of symptoms such as itch, discharge, hyperemia, photophobia, blurred vision, and foreign body sensation. The cornea and conjunctiva are vulnerable to physical and chemical trauma. This video describes the assessment of ocular toxicity of chemicals. The populations with high exposure risk are noted.
