Do you have any tips pertaining to eye safety?

Yes!!! Our eyesight is so critical to our mobility and overall function, protection is critical. This is such a timely topic as A: we approach the 4th of July holiday, when so many enjoy celebrating with potentially dangerous fireworks. Eye protection is relatively simple, but often neglected. Protective eyewear comes in many forms, ranging from everyday prescription glasses and sunglasses, impact resistant “safety” glasses, face shields, ski goggles, swimming masks, and even welding masks. Long-term exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun causes cataracts, similar to the effects of infrared light from glass blowing. One of the most common injuries I see in clinic is metal grinding accidents, where small fragments of metal become embedded in the cornea and need to be removed as soon as possible. Protect your eyes!! If you have any questions or need help with any eye related issues, please contact me at Eye Care Professional Center, where you will feel the difference.
