LIFE, LIMB, AND SIGHT - Don't Forget the Sight!



Emergency medical care is a priority when there is an immediate threat to life, limb, or sight.
The Life, Limb, and Sight Campaign highlights best practices for the prevention, diagnosis, mitigation, treatment, and rehabilitation of military eye and vision injuries.




Prevention

Ninety percent of all eye injuries can be prevented by using protective eyewear. Stay mission ready and learn what you can do to protect your eyes—on and off duty.

 
Diagnosis

Changes in vision can occur following blast exposure, eye injury, concussion or a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Being aware of the symptoms and changes in the eye and vision is crucial to maximizing recovery from vision problems of all causes and maintaining mission readiness.

 
Mitigation

If an injury occurs, responding properly could save a person’s sight. Learn what to do in the case of an eye injury. Knowing these tips, whether at home, at work or on the battlefield, will help you and your battle buddy be mission ready.
