Home Eye Safety Month
October 1 – October 31 CDT
Home Eye Safety Month, observed in October and sponsored by Prevent Blindness, encourages people to take necessary safety measures to reduce the risk of eye injury.
Home Eye Safety Month calls attention to the fact that nearly fifty percent of the annual 2.5 million eye injuries occur at home. That number is more injuries than occur in school or the work place combined. From cleaning and cooking to mowing and repairing, eye injuries occur every day while performing routine activities. When completing these daily tasks in and around the home, we often become complacent and do not take proper safety precautions.
