June Eye Health Observances include Firework Eye Safety and Cataract Awareness!
Firework Eye Safety Month
Many Americans celebrate Independence Day by spending hundreds of millions of dollars annually on consumer fireworks. These fireworks cause more than 9,000 injuries a year! Since the Fourth of July holiday is just weeks away, Advanced Eyecare Optometry is reminding the public that fireworks are not toys but incendiary devices that can cause devastating eye injuries.Please be safe and wear eye protection when necessary.
Cataract Awareness Month
Cataracts are one of the leading causes of blindness in the U.S. If left untreated, cataracts can lead to blindness. The longer cataracts are left untreated, the more difficult it can be to successfully remove the cataract and restore vision. During the month of June, Advanced Eyecare Optometry reminds the public that early detection and treatment of cataracts is critical to preserving sight. Be sure to schedule regular eye exams!
