Eye injuries are one of the most common preventable causes of blindness in ducks. Injury may be caused by conflict with another flock member, self-inflected from sharp toenails, exposure to sharp objects (thorns, wires, etc.), and from heavy winds blowing sand or other abrasive material into the duck's eyes. Types of eye injuries can include minor irritation to lacerations of the eyelid, third eyelid or cornea, and punctures or abrasions. Eye injuries need immediate attention to prevent the duck from losing their eyesight.
