A recent foam party in Naples, Florida, resulted in a whopping 56 people checking into the emergency room with eye issues. Some couldn’t open their eyes, some were unable to see properly, some were in extreme pain and discomfort. All had attended the party and reported rubbing their eyes at some point.
