What kind of damage can happen if sprayed in the eye with a can of air?

What kind of damage can happen if sprayed in the eye with a can of air?

Depends: Depends on the distance from the eye, the pressure in the can and any contaminants in the can. If very powerful, fully loaded and close up, one might do siginficant damage. A single casual blast of canned air perhaps might do no harm and be of no consequence. I would caution to avoid this activity or risk. Read more

When watching a welder, what kind of damage can occur in the eye?

Several: The principal effect of welding on the eye is a sunburn type reaction of the corneal surface due to the ultraviolet light. This is why welders wear a mask with a dense filter. Particles can fly off the welded area and cause damage so it is best not to stand too close without protection. With proper protection as welders know, the eyes can be protected. Read more

My daughter white part of the eye isn't white like other people her eye is kind of pink, red vein is visible and a bit of grey. Is this cause by laptop.

Some people have prominent blood vessel that cause the sy=urface to look red-- this is normal. Other causes can be allergic or dryness. Sometimes prolonged computer use can cause the eye surface to dry out due to decreased blinking. Artificial tear supple. Read more

What kind of eye infection do I have? The eye is really red and very watery. I see something that looks like mucus.

You: You should see a medical doctor to have this examined, especially if it persists. There are many different diseases that cause red, watery eyes.
Often this is infectious and it can be quite contagious, so be very careful about not rubbing your eyes, nose or mouth. It may be best to stay away from other people and out of work until this resolves, but let your medical doctor advise you after they've examined your eyes.
If you wear contact lenses do not put them back into your eyes. Read more
