A Patriotic Public Service Announcement

This is your eye:


This is your eye on fireworks (or weedeaters for that matter):


Any questions?

This patriotic public service announcement brought to you by Mike the Eyeguy who reminds you:

“If you plan to have some fireworks fun, then your safety glasses you must don.”

    I usually spend July 5th and 6th picking pieces of this and that out of my patients’ eyes or treating hyphemas (blood in the eye) like the bottom picture.

    This year, I got an early start. Mr. Bottom Picture came in yesterday.

    Wal-Mart and Sam’s sell multipacks of relatively inexpensive polycarbonate safety glasses. They’re great for passing out to kids at fireworks parties.

    It’s very dry here. If a Roman Candle were to land in my backyard, the whole neighborhood would likely go up like a tinderbox.

    I’m hoping to avoid that. Maybe I better go hook up the water hose.

    Ouch. That looks painful.

    Water on, dude.

    DV–Ha! Ever the opportunist! 🙂

    Seriously, if you live in Middle Tennessee, check out Dr. Double Vision. Tell him the Eyeguy sent you and he’ll give you a 50% discount on all services and materials!

    “Fun” does not ryhme with “don.”


  10. Mike the Eyeguy

    Oy vey! So many critics, so few artists…

    P.S. And “rhyme” is not spelled “ryhme!”

  11. Double vision

    I think 50% discounts are for 1 eye only!

    I think Dr. Double Vision just blinked.
