Over the past three years (2017-19), children aged 3-12 accounted for nearly 2,800 visits to Wisconsin hospital emergency rooms with reported eye injuries. Of those ED visits, 39% of cases seen were female and the remaining were males.
Based off the data, age also seems to play a factor into the likelihood of a child injuring their eyes. Those aged 3 and 4 had the highest number of eye injuries, accounting for 689 cases. Visits trend downward as the children get older, except for ages 11 and 12.
The COVID-19 Situational Awareness Update was developed by the Wisconsin Hospital Association Information Center (WHAIC) in collaboration with the Department of Health Services (DHS). This dashboard is dynamic and we expect to make additional enhancements to it over the coming days/weeks.
