Do not leave the EpiPen in the car, even for a short period of time. The warm temperature in the car can decrease the concentration of the EpiPen without visual changes in the pen. Epinepherine in low concentrations can paradoxically produce vasodialation resulting in hypotenion and release of mediators that can potentially worsen the prognosis in anaphylaxis.
Concusssions are well known risk for students who play sports though eye injuries receive less attention. A new study from JAMA Ophthalmology reported 30,000 sports related eye injuries had been treated each year from 2010-2013. The majority of the injuries occurred to individuals under 18 years of age and quite a few in children under 10 years old. The research was done only on ER visits not urgent care or doctor's offices, so the total number of eye injuries is likely higher.
