It will be of great practical value to ophthalmologists and doctors in emergency medical and burns units, and will acquaint chemists with the clinical consequences of corrosivity. One focus of his work in both the clinical and the research environment is the treatment of eye burns, and more specifically the development of new rinsing solutions for such purposes.
He follows a very interdisciplinary approach to solve clinical problems with input from medical, chemical and engineering experts.

A chemical burn occurs when a liquid chemical contacts the eye. Alkalis are especially dangerous to the eyes. In many cases, prompt and thorough rinsing of the eye with saline or fresh water dramatically reduces the risk of injury and long-term damage. Always wear appropriate safety goggles or a face shield when handling liquid chemicals. A chemical burn occurs when a liquid or powder chemical contacts the eye.
Most commonly, the injury happens when a chemical splashes over the face. However, chemical burns may also result from rubbing your eyes after handling chemicals. Depending on the chemical and the degree of exposure, the potential for injury ranges from temporary redness and irritation to blindness. Chemicals splashed into the eyes can also cause poisoning as they are absorbed into the bloodstream many times more rapidly than chemicals splashed onto the skin.
Always wear appropriate safety goggles or a face shield when handling liquid or powder chemicals. For splashes of non-toxic liquids, such as soaps or shampoos, flushing the eye with fresh water is usually all the treatment you need. However, splashes from acids or alkali chemicals are serious and may cause vision loss. Seek urgent medical attention. Symptoms of chemical burns to the eye The symptoms of a chemical burn depend on the substance splashed into the eyes, but may include: stinging a burning sensation redness pain swelling of the eyelids blurry vision. First aid suggestions for chemical burns to the eye Liquid or powder splashes from chemicals may seriously damage the eye.
Use your fingers to hold your eyelids apart make sure there is no trace of the chemical on your fingers. If you wear contact lenses, remove them as soon as possible. Seek immediate medical advice. Medical staff will need to know what chemical was involved, particularly whether it was acid or alkaline, liquid or powder. Do not judge the seriousness of your eye injury on the degree of pain. Powder chemicals can be particularly damaging since they are more difficult to flush out.
In most cases, prompt and thorough rinsing of the eye with saline or fresh water dramatically reduces the risk of injury and long-term damage full eye examination — this is to check for the location of the burn and the amount of damage diagnostic tests — may include a fluorescein evaluation, which involves the use of a special dye that colours damaged or dead eye tissue yellow-green when viewed under ultraviolet light follow-up examination — generally speaking, the full extent of the injury will not be known for about 24 hours after the accident.
Use medication strictly as directed.
Attend all follow-up appointments. See your doctor or eye specialist straight away if you have new symptoms, such as eye pain, redness, photophobia intolerance of light or blurry vision. Always wear eye protection Estimates suggest that about 90 per cent of chemical burns to the eye are avoidable. However, safety glasses do not seal against the face, which means liquids may splash or run into the eyes. Safety glasses may be an option if the risk of splash is low or if the liquid is non-toxic safety goggles — are made from smash-resistant materials and seal against the face.
Some styles of safety goggles are large enough to be worn over the top of prescription glasses face shields — offer maximum protection against splash injury. In some cases, safety goggles are also worn.
Face shields are recommended when handling dangerous chemicals, such as corrosive liquids or powders, cryogenic fluids or biological materials. For example, a liquid product may also be available as pellets keep safety equipment in good repair — safety goggles and face shields need to be replaced regularly. When working with chemicals, wear prescription glasses instead of contact lenses, and always wear protective equipment over the glasses dispose of unwanted chemicals safely — visit the Sustainability Victoria website to look for chemical collection times and places around Victoria, or call Where to get help In an emergency, always call triple zero Emergency department of your nearest hospital Your doctor Victorian Poisons Information Centre.
