July is Fireworks Eye Safety Month

Americans spend hundreds of millions of dollars annually on consumer fireworks, which cause more than 9,000 injuries a year. With the celebration of the Independence Day holiday, Blue Ridge Eye Associates is reminding our patients that fireworks are not toys but incendiary devices that can cause devastating eye injuries.  Please leave the fireworks to the professionals, and we hope you had a safe and happy 4th of July!
