Eye injuries and trauma can require special equipment to treat properly. Our eye first aid care emergency kit provides not only the basics, but includes a dye and cobalt blue filter light to detect corneal abrasions (eye lacerations). The Special eye magnet and loop is designed to lift metallic debris out of the eye (with the magnet side) and gently scrape off foreign bodies (with the loop side). Protective supplies include eye pads, 2x2 gauze pads, plastic eye shields and eye patches. To examine the eye, a magnifying glass is provided.
More supplies are included than the pictures reflect.
Two written instructions for using the dye and blue light, and how to use the eye magnet and loop are included, as well as Dr. Alton's Eye Trauma article.
Pink Eye Care (cure is best with ophthalmic antibiotic treatment):
- Make a chamomile tea (1 tea bags to 1/2-1 cup of water) and use the liquid as an eye wash, using an eye cup or use with a moist cloth as a compress (soaked cotton balls, washcloth or gauze). The wet teabag can be placed directly on the affected eye as well.
- Mix honey with warm water (1/2 tablespoon of raw honey to 1/2-1 cup warm water). Use as an eye wash or moist compress.

Thankfully I haven't had to use the kit yet but going through the contents it seems to be a complete kit for the eyes. It's a decent sized pouch that is stuffed full. Not being a medical professional myself there seems to be a well thought out supply of materials to handle most eye injuries. The materials seem to be high quality. I hope I never need the kit but am glad I have it if needed.
As usual this is a quality kit from the Altons. I work in a steel mill sometimes running rather large band saws. The problem I have is when deburring pieces is that on rare occasion they fly into the eye even when wearing safety glasses. I figure the eye magnet and loop will be worth the price of the kit not including the eye wash magnifying lens and the ability to floridine the eyes to check for Corniale Abrassions, Sorry for the bad spelling etc but I am doing this on the fly. Great Kit.
I have three of your booksand your dental kit and planning on getting more books and equipment as I can afford them. Every thing is well thought out and excellent quality.
