The Double Eye Wash Station contains:
- 2 x 500ml Eye Wash Bottles
- 2 x 20ml Eye Wash Pods
- 2 x Eye Pad Dressings
- 1 x Mirror
The eye wash bottle and pods can be used in the aid of rinsing the eye and it restores the eye to its natural Ph. level. They also physically wash the eyes in the case of contamination by foreign materials or substances. It can also be used to provide relief to the irritation caused by sensitivity. The eye wash also relieve eyes from discomfort and irritation and may also be applied for minor wound cleansing.
The eye pad dressing is used to safely cover an eye wound before medical assistance has arrived, and to stop infection.
The mirror is used to ensure that everything is applied carefully and correctly, especially if one has to apply the products themselves.
• Most minor eye injuries can be treated without medical assistance.
In the event of a minor cuts around the eye:
• Apply a saline eye pod or the eye wash bottle to clean out the wound
• After the wound is clean, apply a dressing to the affected area
• Keep the area clean and dry
In the event of particles in the eye:
• Immediately flush eyes for at least 15 minutes
• Sit down and slant your head so the injured eye is lower than the unaffected eye (ideally over a bath or sink)
• Use either the eye wash pods or the eye wash bottle as soon as possible to flush out the eye
• Keep the eyes open and rotate the eyeballs in all directions to remove contamination from the eyes
• Keep eyelids open by holding your eyelids apart with your fingers. Ask for help doing this if necessary
• Continue doing this for 15 minutes as you want to fully dilute the particles and wash it out of your eyes
• You should seek immediate medical advice if there are still any foreign bodies in the eye after flushing it
• Do not try to remove any objects embedded or stuck in the eye yourself, as this can cause further damage to the eye. These should only be removed by an eye expert
In the event of chemical exposure:
• All eye injuries caused by chemical exposure should be seen by an eye doctor or nurse as soon as possible after flushing
• If wearing contact lenses, gently take your contact lenses out while you are flushing your eye(s)
• Do not delay flushing the eyes to take out your lenses, but make sure that you take them out as they could trap chemicals/particles in your eyes
