Home Eye Safety Month draws awareness to home eye injuries
Dr. Marc Ellman, an ophthalmologist with the Southwest Eye Institute, said your eyes deserve the utmost care. October is Home Eye Safety Month, which was created to bring attention to injuries that happen at home to the eyes. Each year, over 2 million eye injuries happen at home. Some of the most common injuries are caused by bungee cords. Ellman said wearing a good pair of safety goggles while working with items that can ricochet and harm your eyes is recommended.
