4th of July Fireworks may lead to increased eye injuries By William Goldstein on July 05, 2012

The Michigan Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons has released a survey to try to note any increase in fireworks-related injuries since Michigan passed laws permitting advanced fireworks use. Dr. William Goldstein has completed this survey and is monitoring his patients for these issues. The concern is that the more advanced fireworks carry an increased risk. 

The survey asks eye surgeons to report injuries related to firework use, including the nature of the injury, and what treatment may be needed. 

LASIK patients may be at increased risk, because flap dislocation with trauma is always a concern for these patients.
