    Could my job be effecting my eyes?
    An_253917 posted:
    I was born with Amblyoplia in my left eye. At age 18 I became a Nail Technician. The Acrylic Liquid has always made my eyes water, but it seems to be getting much worse and actually causing a more thick mucus sometimes. Now, if I have more than 2 Acrylic Clients in one day, I get a migraine based behind my eyes. Is this just related to my Amblioplia, or am I developing an allergy to the Acrylic Liquid?
    Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
    Amblyopia (lazy eye) is a condition in which one eye has permanent decreased vision because it was not used during childhood.

    Sounds like the substances that you work with during the day are irritating your eyes. I don't think you are permanently damaging your eyes but the common sense rule applies...if it hurts and doesn't feel good, don't do it.

    Can you change your work conditions to make this more tolerable? Better ventilation, alternative materials, etc???
