July Is Eye Injury Prevention Month

Posted on July 4, 2011 · Posted in Eye Health, General

Happy 4th of July!  We hope everyone has a fun and relaxing holiday in the company of friends and family.

At the same time, it’s important to practice good judgement and common sense around fireworks.  In 2009, fireworks accounted for 8,800 emergency department visits in the United States.  Of those injuries, about 1/4 were eye-related.

Please be safe and protect your eyes!
