THE DANGER IN THE BOTTLE! DON’T BE OUT OF YOUR SIGHT

The consumption of carbonated drinks increases in the summer, causing many people to suffer eye injuries due to lack of attention when opening bottle caps, while some also lose an eye. Turkey iHealth member Izmir Hospital clinic Ophthalmologist Op. Dr. said that carbonated beverage bottles are pushing the list among the causes of eye injuries that come after work accidents. Turkish Ophthalmologist said that soda bottles are one of the most common causes of eye injuries that occur after work accidents.

Op., who warns that carbonated beverage lids should definitely not be opened with tools such as lighters, knives, spoons. Dr. “Trying to open it without using a bottle opener can damage your eye with the effect of pressure. It is necessary to pay attention when opening carbonated beverage lids. It is very dangerous to try to open bottle caps with tools such as lighters, spoons. Careless opening of the lid causes damage to the eye of the lid, which is ejected by the pressure inside the bottle. A carbonated beverage bottle cap that comes to the eye almost like a bullet causes permanent blindness. It is important to use a bottle opener to prevent eye injuries caused by compressed metal bottle caps. We should expand the use of screw-flip, open lids, or use a bottle opener,” he said.

Proper intervention is vital

Noting that the first minutes or even seconds are of great importance in eye injuries, Ophthalmologist Op. Dr. “Although accidents such as these, which can cause punctures and protrusion of the eye, especially in the eye, are one of the important emergency cases, the right intervention is vital because every attempt made incorrectly can cause irreversible consequences. In accidents where eye injuries occur, the eye must first be closed with a sterile handkerchief or pet. The eye should never be touched, and if something has caught your eye, you should definitely not try to remove it. Otherwise, there is a risk that the material inside the eye will be pulled out. Therefore, it is necessary to contact the nearest medical institution in no time,” he urged.
