Your eyes are among the most sensitive parts of your body. They are more susceptible to injury than most other areas. In many cases, eye injuries can cause blindness (temporary or permanent), discomfort, and/or a severe decrease in your vision. Eye injuries are often the result of traumatic accidents. In some cases, they are no one’s fault. In other instances, an eye injury can occur due to the negligence of another person or party.
