Thats the word from Dr. Glen March, who says people are injured every New Years from incorrectly opening champagne bottles.
March says the corks act are like small missiles that get wedged right in the middle of the eye causing blindness and other serious head injuries.
He says its easy to avoid a trip to the emergency room this New Years by following these three steps.
If someone is popped with a cork, Dr. March says its crucial to take them to the hospital right away and to tape a paper plate or cup over it to protect it from further damage.
