Results and discussion

Clinical signs:
The paint was impregnated into the subconjunctival tissues of the left eye with high velocity, resulting in a blue eye. The eye was washed immediately with cold water, and there was no evidence of serious chemical injury. Six month after the injury, there was no change in the appearance of the eye and no other ocular or systemic complications.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Waterborne paints are supposedly environmentally friendly, and it appears that the components of this paint are relatively nontoxic to the eye. However, the patient will continue to be monitored for any long-term complications.
Executive summary:

Uradil SZ261 G3Z-65 is a resin containing butyl glycol (2-butoxyethanol) and ethyl ethanol amine (2-dimethylaminoethanol). It is used in stoving enamels for interior and exterior use. The authors report a case of ocular surface injury with a high pressure industrial spray paint- Waterborne Stoving Gentian Blue containing Uradil.

There was no evidence of serious chemical injury.
