Bausch + Lomb partners with Intellipure to provide near-perfect air at their corporate headquarters. Improving indoor air quality in the workplace has many significant impacts including increased worker productivity, but for an industry leader like Bausch + Lomb, protecting their workers’ health is crucial.
Air pollution is amongst the top five causes of a variety of eye ailments as seen in all age groups. Common symptoms of eye irritation caused by pollution include:
- dry eyes
- watery, itchy eyes
Often these symptoms cause headaches and fatigue. However, more serious complications and damage to the eyes can occur from long-term exposure to toxins such as nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide. Research published in the Science Daily suggests long-term exposure to pollutants from vehicle exhaust is linked to a heightened risk of the common eye condition age-related macular degeneration. The supporting data:
“After taking account of potentially influential factors, such as age, sex, household income, and underlying illnesses, those with the highest level of exposure to NO? (more than 9825.5 ppb) were nearly twice (91%) as likely to develop AMD as those exposed to the lowest level (less than 6563.2 ppb).
And people who were exposed to the highest level of CO (more than 297.1 ppm) were 84% more likely to develop AMD than those exposed to the lowest level (less than 195.7 ppm).
The highest rate (5.8%) of newly diagnosed AMD was among people living in the area with the highest level of CO exposure.”
