The Fourth of July is right around the corner! BBQ, sunshine and fireworks will dominate the day. And while watching an impressive fireworks show is a fun way to end the evening, there are important things to know to keep everyone safe, and especially protect your children’s eyes.
Keeping a good distance from live fireworks, letting official pyrotechnicians handle professional grade fireworks and wearing safety glasses are all important steps to take to prevent injury.
Be sure to check out this helpful info from the American Academy of Ophthalmology to help you be best prepared to have a fun and safe holiday.
And don’t forget, the Children’s Eye Foundation hopes you have a very happy Independence Day!
