Eyewears, protective eyewashes, and more are being reviewed by medical professionals to make sure they are safe to wear.
They’re being developed as a way to prevent or treat people who might be seriously injured or have severe or fatal medical conditions.
The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) says it’s looking at several types of protective eyeglasses and other eyewash options.
But it says the majority of people who wear them are in good health.
“Our goal is to make the eyewashed environment as safe as possible,” said Dr. Robert E. Williams, director of the department of veterans’ health services.
The department says people who have received any type of injury should wear the eyeglass to prevent the eyes from swelling, pain, and swelling that could cause further injury.
“I do think that there’s a real risk that you may be wearing something that you might need to wear again to prevent that further swelling,” Williams said.
There are several types in the marketplace, including glasses made of glass, which have the advantage of being lightweight, but also offer less protection.
The FDA says it has not seen a study on the safety of eyewashing eyewashers, but it has looked at the use of prescription glasses, which are designed to protect the eyes against direct sunlight.
It also says eyewares are also being used to help people who need to be at home or on the go.
“We’re also looking at how we can reduce the likelihood that these eyewats can be used in environments where it’s very likely that a person could be injured,” Williams says.
Eyewash manufacturers say there are safety benefits for wearing the eyepieces to help protect the eye, but that not everyone has the luxury of wearing the glasses for a certain amount of time.
“If you’re wearing them a certain length of time and you can’t take them off and get to the bathroom, that’s not going to help you,” Williams added.
But the eyeware industry says the products have been proven to help relieve stress and reduce eye irritation.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says there are some studies showing that wearing protective eyefalls reduces stress and decreases eye swelling.
