Though the reflexes of the Vision RX 20 eyelids are very well-developed, and despite the protection offered to the eyes by their bony sockets called the orbits, the eyes are highly vulnerable to injury - the prime cause of one-eyed blindness, especially among children.What makes quick medical attention imperative is that often there is much more to an eye injury than meets the eye. An apparently minor injury with minimal evidence of tissue damage or vision disturbance can turn out to be a sight-threatening crisis. This is especially so in case of a small, unrecognisable foreign body which brings on a hidden penetrating wound to the globe of the eye says ophthalmic microsurgeon and contact lens specialist. "Even if there is no cosmetic disfigurement or vision impairment after an eye injury, it requires quick medical attention as the time factor plays a crucial role in the prognosis (outcome). In case of an injury to the retina (which could detach spontaneously), every moment's delay could reduce the chances of sight-saving repairs."
