Your Eyes

Eyecare until Medical Assistance is Available

by Dr. Tom Smith

After an eye injury, you would normally seek immediate medical aid.  However, in cases of disaster such as hurricanes, healthcare may not be available for some time.  It took three days to establish a free standing eye service after Hurricane Katrina, and then `50 people sought assistance daily.

While awaiting help, any injury must be treated very carefully.  Cover a bleeding eyeball with a clean cloth or even tap on the bottom of a paper cup or small bowl.  Do not try to remove or wash out an imbedded item or put an eye back in its socket.  Once again, keep the eye covered to minimize movement and provide protection.

Do whatever you can to prevent eye infections.  Even if it is impossible to find clean water or an eye covering, do not rub or touch areas of your eye.  Obviously, having a first-aid kit on hand at all times is the best solution.  It should include distilled water for cleaning and sterile gauze for covering injuries.
