Your eyes are delicate and your vision is vital, so to reduce the risk of permanent damage caused by an eye injury, have eyewash available to use. It’s important to treat injuries to the eye immediately and to seek medical advice as soon as possible; using a sterile eyewash is an equally as important as treating a wound.
First aid regulations state that when tap water is not readily available for eye irritations, then you should have a saline solution, such as this. Plus, it’s safer than water as there is less likelihood of contaminated water, chlorine and chemicals, and is a lot easier than trying to manoeuvre your head under a cold water tap. The sterile eyewash is specifically balanced to ensure no irritation when absorbed into the body.
