Depending on the person’s working, various disorders related to the eye can occur. Depending on the work, cataracts, macular degeneration, retinal detachment, allergic conjunctivitis can be seen. Welders, computer and other users with visual displays, jewelery makers, fluoroscopy and cardiac catheterizers, radiology technicians are at risk for cataracts. Allergic conjunctivitis due to allergens such as organic dusts, chemicals, etc., which are exposed in the working environment, may occur. Employees should perform necessary medical examinations and tests according to the nature of the work and the working environment. If the work done and the environment are risky for eye disease, necessary precautions should be taken. The worker should also be examined before starting work, and periodic eye examinations should be done after starting work.
