Título Contact lenses: no extra risk for welders
Título original Contactlenzen geen extra gevaar bij lassen [en holandés]
Información bibliográfica 29 Aug. 1984, Vol.62, No.17, p.663-664. 8 ref.
Resumen In 1983 arc welders and industrial physicians were alarmed by statements on accidents resulting in blindness in contact-lens wearers who looked at electric arcs. These statements were totally unfounded as were similar stories that had been published on several occasions since 1971. The results of recent research on the effects of welding arcs on rabbit eyes covered with contact lenses provide no contraindication for contact-lens wearers.
