Firework Safety

Fireworks are already on sale at stands across Arkansas in advance of the 4th of July holiday.

Eye doctors say bottle rockets will no doubt cause another round of eye injuries.

Many of the injuries caused by bottle rockets leave permanent eye damage and sometimes blindness.

Stand managers say it is important to follow the safety instructions on each package and to wear eye protections.

Some stands are even giving away safety glasses this year.
