NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Laundry detergent capsules cause eye injuries to children 30 times, according to a new study published on CNN.



The results of this study were published in the JAMA Medical Journal. Between 2012 and 2015, the percentage of chemical burns to the eye associated with laundry detergent bags increased by more than 30 times, especially in young children.



The study confirmed that 1200 cases of chemical burns were received for the eyes of children aged 3 to 4 years, where the proportion of injuries in these cases was 0.8% in 2012 and increased to reach 26% in 2015.



The report said that these detergents are small capsules colored chemicals that some children play by scratching and leaking these substances to one eye or the eyes of the child or may leak this material into their hands and then open their eyes.



The chemicals found inside these capsules are among the worst chemicals that can damage the eye, causing acid burns to the eye, penetrating the eye deeply, quickly and tissue.



The author of the study, Dr. Harring said that these substances cause poor vision in the long term because the cornea has blood vessels so that the full recovery of the effects of these materials is very difficult.



"Children are 50 percent more likely to have eye damage than adults," Dr. Harring said.



The new study also analyzed data on new safety standards published in December 2015 by the American International Association, a non-profit organization that develops consumer safety standards.



The study pointed out that these burns are very painful, they require emergency treatment by ophthalmologists, so doctors advise parents to keep these materials away from the hands of children.

Dr. Michael Grosso, head of pediatrics and chief medical officer at Huntington Hospital, said that if the child was exposed to the condition, the first thing to do was to wash the child's eye with cold water for 20 minutes.
