Watch out for that cork: Champagne Safety on New Year’s Eve!

New Year’s Eve is the most hazardous to your potential vision loss. Fireworks and corked bottle celebrations are the culprit for numerous visits to the Emergency Room!

It’s New Year’s Eve and time to ring in 2014 with family and friends. A time to reflect on the year gone by and resolution time for many hoping to change some things worth changing. From health and wellness to relationships and goals, gyms will be filled to capacity as January rolls in.

As parties commence and celebrations begin, be aware of flying champagne corks that break free from their bottles. Doctors from the Vanderbilt Eye Institute stated “while it might seem cool to shake up a bottle of bubbly and let it gush, you could suffer anything from a corneal abrasion to a detached retina.”

The more you shake the bottle, the greater the chance the cork will turn into a projectile once the bottle is opened and the landing place could be your eye. So think before you shake, and be aware of those around you. For those new years resolutions and goals need to be met.

Safety first this New Year’s Eve!
Cheers to a great 2014!
