The Significance of this Class of Injury THE vast and far‐reaching effect of an eye injury is seldom fully realized, either by the worker or by the management, a fact which, no doubt, explains much of the prevalent disregard of preventive measures. A worker who sustains an eye accident, and goes off duty, disappears for a varying period of time from the ken of his shop manager and workmates in much the same way as one who has sustained a simple laceration of the hand or arm, yet to the medical and compensation departments his case may present far greater problems.
