Soroka eye doctors urge soldiers to don eye goggles during war

The number of severe wounds to the eyes of soldiers during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza last year was significantly reduced because they were equipped with protective goggles recommended by Soroka-University Medical Center ophthalmologists.
This finding is to be reported this week at a Soroka research meeting in which medical teams present 350 new studies at the hospital.
In a retrospective study of IDF soldiers who were admitted to the Beersheba hospital with damage to their eyes during the war with Gaza, it was found that most of the injuries were due to blast and shrapnel wounds of different severity, with the entrance of foreign bodies into the eye.
They were typical of ophthalmic injuries in urban settings.
