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.
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. This could cause the lens to cloud and cause a cataract– possibly leading to blindness.
So if a tanning salon does not comply with these regulations or do not act reasonably and causes vision loss, the salon and sometimes machine builders may become liable.
Another of these uncommon eye injuries was experienced 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. ELFPI is specialized in public trust and consumer defect/fraud claims. So we have your back.
