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:
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.
Teach children the safe use of toys. Prior to play, inspect toys for sharp or pointed edges.
Be careful not to let small children play unsupervised.
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.
