Today in the office I saw 6 eye injuries two of them extremely serious. All could have been prevented by some common sense and protective eye wear. If you use power tools, lawn mowers, weed eaters, play racquet sports, or summer sports (baseball, softball, target shoot with archery or guns, etc, etc) wear eye protection.
ALSO EVERY OPHTHALMOLOGIST HATES FIRECRACKER EYE INJURIES. Bottle rockets are the worse, cherry bombs/M-80 and sparklers in the eye are next.
Parents assume some control over your childs use or misuse of fireworks.
