Medical Surveillance

Tufts University Faculty, staff, and students working with class 3B or 4 lasers are strongly encouraged to participate in the baseline eye examination assessment.  The eye exam establishes a baseline against which ocular damage may be measured.  Medical examinations are required for a suspected or actual laser induced injury.  Personnel are required to report to their supervisor immediately and Occupational Health Services within 48 hours or as soon as possible for post injury assessment.

Promptly refer individuals:

  • Requesting a baseline eye examination to an ophthalmologist
  • That have a known or suspected eye injury to an ophthalmologist
  • That have skin injuries to a physician

Personnel seeking occupational health services are advised to contact Occupational Medical Services directly or follow LSP-004: Baseline Medical Surveillance Procedure.  Employee health related services are provided to personnel on all three campus locations.
