2.  More than meets the eye: a study of the time lost from work by patients who incurred injuries from corneal foreign bodies. 
A prospective study was carried out to establish the time lost from work due to corneal foreign body injury. Data were collected over a 5 month period on a total of 504 patients attending a busy district hospital eye casualty department. The median time lost through injury was 4 hours and 148 patients (30%) took no time off work. Corneal foreign bodies are known to be painful injuries but in spite of this few patients take more than half a day off work.
