Eye doctors offer fireworks safety tips

If you and your family like fireworks, the best way to enjoy them is by watching displays staged by professionals, according to eye doctors.
While you may be tempted to put on your own show, it's "better to just leave the fireworks alone and go to a show ... and let the professionals do it.
