When you’re planning all the festivities of this holiday (and other summertime activities), think about how nice it would be to see clearly without the need for contacts or glasses. Is it time to finally give yourself the gift of LASIK laser eye surgery?

Keep Your Eyes Safe While Enjoying Fireworks

 

Who doesn’t love to celebrate Independence Day every year with their friends and family, a delicious barbecue and some sizzling fireworks? Many people have created a holiday tradition around enjoying the Fourth of July with sparklers and a spectacle of other crackling, colorful explosions in the sky. The bad news is that these fun shows often take a dangerous turn, and result in approximately 1,300 eye injuries a year (not to mention burns and other injuries).

Signs of Cataracts in Your Loved Ones

In case you haven’t yet heard, this month is Cataracts Awareness Month. While cataracts can develop at nearly any age, they’re most commonly discovered after age 60. But even if you’re not yet near that age, it’s still important to know the symptoms of cataracts so you can help identify signs of cataracts in loved ones. After all, cataracts are the leading cause of blindness around the world but can almost always be treated or removed if caught early enough.
