Fun and Safe Toys for the Holidays

The holidays are upon us and we all know what that means, new toys for the kiddies. Well meaning mothers and fathers delight in surprising the little ones with the newest toys for the holidays.
It is necessary that parents learn and relay to others some restrictions about toys and eye safety. Injuries involving toys can occur, occasionally causing blindness.

Below are some tips to safeguard children from toy related eye injuries:

  1. When purchasing a gift, confirm that it is suitable for the child's age and level of development. Be careful not to allow small siblings to play with toys intended for older children.

  2. Teach children the safe use of toys. Prior to play, inspect toys for sharp or pointed edges.

  3. Be careful not to let small children play unsupervised.

  4. Protect little eyes by tossing out toys with jagged or staggered edges or projectiles.

Before you dish out the new game that your child absolutely ''needs'', spend some time to read eye safety guidelines for toys. The holidays are a great time for creating special moments with your loved ones, not the doctor on staff at the local hospital. Happy Holidays.

Reduced Staff and Office Hours

Our office will remain open for patients who are experiencing any eye-related issues, including emergency visits, non-routine exams to replace lost or broken glasses and refilling of contact lens prescriptions. We will be working reduced hours, with a skeleton staff. Please call before coming into the office, as we will not be seeing any walk-ins. We are also offering telehealth for patients experiencing any eye-related infections for those who are unable to or are not comfortable coming into the office.

We appreciate your understanding in working to keep our staff and patients safe. Please take good care of yourself and stay healthy! We will get through this!
