The Academy of Ophthalmology has taken a stand against firework injuries by recommending that people enjoy fireworks from afar done by professionals instead of doing their own fireworks displays at home. Dr. Wagner stands by this recommendation. He states, “Fireworks can cause various type of eye injuries. They can cut or burn the eye, cause retinal detachment or optical nerve damage. These injures are often permanent.” For those not willing to forego the fireworks tradition, Dr. Wagner recommends protective eye gear for the person lighting the fireworks as well as spectators watching nearby. He states, “It is not worth the risk to lose your vision. We want everyone to have a happy and safe July 4th this year.”
