Occupational hazards to vision, hearing, balance, olfaction, and taste typically constitute a small fraction of specialty medical practices in ophthalmology and otolaryngology. With the possible exception of noise-related hearing loss and VDT eye hazards, the scientific literature regarding these hazards tends to be scattered and variably accessible to occupational medicine practitioners. It is hoped that the current review will heighten the appreciation of these hazards among both generalists and specialists, and will encourage future documentation and reporting of this interesting group of disorders.
