Firework Safety Month is something that we at Vision Professionals of Leawood take very seriously every year. This June, it is essential for other optometry experts and us to teach people how to avoid severe eye damage when enjoying fireworks this season.

Call our Leawood optometrist at 913-239-9446 to learn more about fireworks safety this June. At Vision Professionals of Leawood, we provide patients the eye care help they need to be safe and healthy during this fireworks season.
