"Guest-blogger Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst N.Y. and has worked in the
ophthalmology field of medicine for over 30 years...Today she talks about the joy of yard-work and to remember
to protect your eyes,...Enjoy... ;D)
It's Spring here on the East Coast and we are seeing many eye injuries coming in lately; eye protection people.
Yard work and lawn work, planting, trimming, digging, etc, all are done without thinking of protecting the eyes. Goggles or glasses do a lot for covering the eyes from flying debris, branches jumping out and objects flying into the eyes from grass cutting.
Sometimes we are so excited to once again work in the yard we forget about the really important things. Don't get an abrasion, infection or injury to your eyes; protect them before you enter the yard and enjoy the great weather.
