- Lack of Eye Protection and Tanning Salons.
One of the lesser-known but still significant causes of severe eye damage is at tanning salons. Under FDA guidelines, customers are supposed to wear protective goggles due to the concentrated UV radiation used to tan the skin but not blocked by the eyelids.
How Do Ultraviolet Rays Harm Your Eyes?
In other cases, too much exposure to ultraviolet rays to the eyes can cause damage to the retina and cornea. Repeated exposure can cause the eye lens to change. So this could cause the glass to cloud and cause a cataract– possibly leading to blindness.
So if a tanning salon does not comply with these regulations or does not act reasonably and causes vision loss, the salon and sometimes machine builders may become liable.
Another of these uncommon eye injuries occurred on May 15, 2006, when Bausch & Lomb recalled their contact lens solution ReNu with MoistureLoc. So this recall was due to reports that showed consumers being infected with a dangerous eye infection, Fusarium Keratitis. In fact, this eye infection caused inflammation of the cornea in the front of the eye.
Last, sometimes, surgery became necessary. So this becomes grounds for a defective product lawsuit. Ehline Law Firm has earned public trust for effective representation in consumer defect/fraud claims. So you know we have your back during the entire personal injury claims process.
Our number one concern is getting you the best legal and medical care. With proper compensation, victims can pay for their current and future medical bills and receive the medical advice they need to live a fulfilling life.
