Answer

Educate patients about proper eye precautions, such as the use of UV-filtering lenses or limiting exposure to the sun. The condition is preventable with the appropriate precautions.

For excellent patient education resources, visit eMedicineHealth's Eye and Vision Center. Also, see eMedicineHealth's patient education article Corneal Flash Burns.
