Projectiles Can Cause Devastating Eye Injuries 

Be mindful of eye safety during fireworks season.

Every year, approximately 10,000 people are rushed to the emergency department for fireworks injuries. Fireworks are projectiles, as are balls, champagne corks, small toys, BB gun bullets, rubber bullets and more. Every projectile has the potential to injure the eye and cause permanent vision loss.
