Home Eye Safety Month
Home Eye Safety Month, observed in October, encourages people to take necessary safety measures to reduce the risk of eye injury.
Each year, nearly fifty percent of the annual 2.5 million eye injuries occur at home; that's more injuries than occur in school or 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.
