If you work in industries such as construction, mining, carpentry, manufacturing, electrical work, welding, or plumbing, you are at high risk for eye injury. Research suggests that over two thousand workers in these industries seek medical attention for an eye injury each day. Although this number may be shocking, the majority of these injuries can be prevented or reduced in severity with the use of proper safety equipment.
Although office jobs don’t carry the same eye injury risks as the industries mentioned above, there are still conditions that threaten the health of your eyes. One of the most common eye health problems experienced by office workers is digital eye strain, also known as computer vision syndrome.
At Dittman Eyecare we offer 24-hour emergency service for eye injuries. If you experience an eye injury, you can call our number after hours and leave a voicemail and we will return your phone call within 15 minutes.
Thank you for being a valued patient at Dittman Eyecare. Unfortunately, as you most likely already know the governor of PA, Tom Wolf mandated all non-life sustaining businesses close their doors immediately. As eye care providers that means we are allowed to only to take care of ocular emergencies.
As of now here are our plans:
At Dittman Eyecare we want you to know that we thank you for trusting us with your eye care needs. We also wish everyone stays healthy and keeps a positive mindset in these trying days, and we look forward to when we can open our doors and go back to business as usual!
