“You’ll shoot your eye out!”

…or hopefully you won’t. Where I come from, fireworks could be purchased on the side of the road for a few dollars. And there was nothing more fun than watching your older cousins have roman candle battles in the backyard! What were our parents thinking?!

This July 4th, let’s do things a little differently. In fact, let’s let the professionals do all the work! The most difficult part of creating a breath-taking fireworks display, in my opinion, is the timing (and the safety, but we’ll get to that later). There’s nothing worse then waiting for your Uncle Jerry’s “show” to start, seeing a few fireworks, and then experiencing that awkward, pregnant pause while his under-qualified teenage son races to light the next missile. This is where professional shows make all the difference. They have their aerial barrage at-the-ready so the spectators can truly sit back and enjoy a beautiful, seamless show of firework fancy.

If you’re still hanging onto the crazy notion of having the greatest atmospheric dance of lights on your block, please take a few precautions. Be sure to read the directions on how to safely light your fireworks. If it says the flying saucer should be lit while in the upright position, don’t put it on its side and try to see who can get theirs closest to your grumpy neighbor’s front door. And we all know the right glasses are very much an accessory these days. Protect your precious peepers with some glasses so you don’t spend next year wishing you could see what everyone is ooh-ing and aah-ing about. Happy birthday to the good ol’ US of A from the doctors and staff of Eye Doctors of Washington!
