What is Blindness?

While everyone knows blindness is the lack of vision in one or both eyes‚ many aren’t aware that there are levels of blindness. These levels of blindness offer some kind of vision‚ but nowhere near the level of normal eyesight. Someone who is legally blind may still be able to see changes in light or even blurry shapes. Well over a million people in America are legally blind. The American Academy of Ophthalmology estimates that over two million people suffer eye injuries each year‚ leaving 50‚000 people with part or all their vision lost.

Some Types of Eye Injuries

Eye injuries can result in double vision‚ damage to tear ducts‚ or lost vision. Here are the three most common eye injuries:

  • Anterior chamber hyphema: this injury happens when a person is hit in the eye and blood enters the front chamber of the eye. This injury can cause the inside of the eye to fill completely with blood.
  • Torn/detached retinas: the retina is a thin tissue located in the back of the eye. It sends signals to the optic nerve when exposed to light. When the retina gets torn or detached‚ severe vision problems that will need surgery to correct will occur.
  • Iris/pupil damage: a trauma to the eye can cause muscles inside the eye that control the size and shape of the pupil to be damaged. This will cause issues with being able to see.

Common Causes of Eye Injuries

There are many different ways a person can suffer vision loss in an injury. Some diseases and infections can cause vision issues‚ as well as conditions caused by people aging. But‚ most cases of vision loss are caused by a personal injury. Here are the most common causes of eye injuries our clients have reported:

Eye Injury Treatment

The first part of any treatment for an eye or vision loss injury is to find out what’s the cause of these issues. Depending on the circumstances behind your injury‚ there are different ways of treating your vision issues. Laser surgery‚ prescription eye medications‚ and vision-enhancing devices have been used to treat eye injuries. Your doctor will be able to help you choose which treatment is right for you. Then‚ your San Diego personal injury attorney can help you seek the settlement to pay for these treatments.
