Eye Doctor: Consumer Fireworks Should be Prohibited

During New Year’s Eve, seven people were treated at the eye hospital in Rotterdam.  Each one had an eye seriously damaged by fireworks.  The victims will either have reduced vision or be completely blind in one eye.  In some cases, an eye will even have to be removed entirely.  Eye doctor Tjeerd de Faber said that there should be a government prohibition of consumer fireworks.  He said so in the name of the Dutch Association of Eye Doctors.
