An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
JUNE – Graduations. Weddings. The beginning of summer. Fireworks Eye Safety and Cataract Awareness month.
There are more than 9,000 injuries a year in America caused by consumer fireworks. With July 4th a few weeks away, the American Academy of Ophthalmology is reminding the public to practice safety because fireworks can cause devastating eye injuries.
The AAO is also reminding everyone this month that early detection and treatment of cataracts is critical to preserving sight. Cataracts are one of the leading causes of blindness because they are left untreated or treated too late.
Have fun this summer and be safe. Visit us at American Vision at the Court for all your eye-health and eyewear needs.
