As Bonfire night approaches, it’s good to remind ourselves about the potential dangers of fireworks.
Every year 10 people in the UK lose their sight and 300 people suffer serious eye injuries as a result of accidents caused by fireworks.
It’s not just children messing about that are at risk, three quarters of serious ocular traumas are sustained by adults and most of these occur at private parties .
In case of a firework eye injury:
Seek medical attention immediately. Quick action can minimise long-term damage.
Do not rub or rinse the injured eye, or apply any ointments to the eye area. If you do, it could increase any damage and make it more difficult for a specialist to provide treatment.
Follow the Eyecare Trust’s SPARKLER code for a safe and injury free Bonfire Night:
Shield your eyes with protective eyewear when lighting fireworks
Plunge sparklers into a bucket of cold water as soon as they have burnt out
Attend organised displays wherever possible
Read the instructions on the fireworks with a torch and follow them carefully (ensure your fireworks comply with the British Safety Standard BS 7114)
Keep all fireworks in a closed metal box and only light one at a time
Leave fireworks that fail to go off – never return to a lit firework
Ensure everyone stands a safe distance away when the fireworks are going off
Remove all debris and flammable objects from your firework display area.
We are delighted to now be stocking the innovative new eyelid massager Eyepeace.
Developed by Ophthalmologists to help address the issues of MGD (Meibomian Gland Dysfunction), dry eye, blepharitis and chalazion.
Eyepeace is designed to be a safe, non invasive way to express the meibomian glands by massaging in a vertical motion.
It has been clinically proven to improve symptoms by enhancing the stability and uniformity of the oily layer of the tear film.
It is an easy, comfortable and effective device to use to help treat dry eye.
Over 600 motorists have had their driving licenses revoked after failing roadside eye tests since the 2013 introduction of Cassie’s law.
Cassie’s mother, Jackie Rason, applied for a change in the law after her 16-year-old daughter died from injuries sustained when an 87 year old motorist lost control of his car.
Under this new law, when a police officer believes that the safety of other road users would be put at risk if a driver with insufficient eye sight remains on the road, they can ask for the licence to be urgently revoked.
Ms Rason told the Press Association “That’s more than 600 people who could still be driving, perhaps without even knowing that there was a problem with their sight. You can’t say that in every case they would have killed somebody, but it is very likely to have prevented fatal accidents and other casualties”.
Ms Rason hopes to continue campaigning for mandatory sight tests for all drivers, with additional examinations for those over the age of 70.
Perhaps now is a good time to remind yourself to make sure you, and your family and friends, have been keeping up to date with your eye examinations.
