Abstract

Sharps injury is well known risk for Health Care Workers (HCW). It possess the potential risk of transmission of blood borne pathogens and causes anxiety to HCWs. Ophthalmic practice consists of medical and surgical components with surgical components predominates the work load. The microsurgical nature of the specialty increases the risks of exposure to HCWs. Published data of sharp injury in ophthalmic practice are few. To my knowledge no study on sharps injuries in ophthalmic practice in Saudi Arabia has been published. The objective of the study is to describe the pattern of sharps injuries in ophthalmic practice in Dhahran eye specialist hospital (DESH) and to identify risk factors for injury.
