'Tis the Season!
19% of all injuries sustained from fireworks are eye injuries and most of those are due to misuse or malfunction of the fireworks. The 2015 Consumer Product Safety Commission report states that there were over 7000 injuries treated in emergency rooms across the US in the weeks leading up to and just after the 4th of July! As one might expect, 74% of those were males. 35% of the injuries were to kids under the age of 15!
Most of the eye injuries were from contusions, lacerations and foreign bodies. Please handle all fireworks properly and have a safe holiday!
Walt sure had it right. At my office, we try, every single day, to bring you excellent eyecare, the latest eyewear at reasonable prices, and our expertise in tests and interpretation. We want you to have an enjoyable experience with no surprises. We work with you and your insurance company to maximize the benefits you work so hard for. And sometimes when we need to refer you for more specialized care, we make sure we choose the referral physician who best meets your needs.
Without you, our patient, we have no need to strive. You are the one who makes us work to be our best. YOU are the reason we are here and, as our mission statement says, our ONLY goal is to take the very best care of our patients!
