Firework eye injuries survey
With the New Year celebrations just behind us, please join the ICO and WGA in efforts toward the shared purpose of preventing needless blindness from consumer fireworks. Eye injuries from fireworks are a recurring problem during festivities and member societies continue to advocate for a ban on commercial fireworks, such as the European Society of Ophthalmology under the leadership of SOE President, Dr. Jan Tjeerd de Faber.
To support these efforts, we are sharing a brief online survey to collect worldwide data on firework eye injuries. It will remain open until January 31, 2019 and this information will highlight this important cause of vision loss to policymakers.
