According to Medical News Today, some toys can pose a major safety hazard to your child's eyes, so it's smart to know which toys to be leery of - especially if you have a baby or toddler AND an older child. Older kids toys can be more dangerious when it comes to eyes and vision. For example, while a BB gun pellet may be small and won't easily penetrate a young child's skin it can puncture an eye quickly and easily. One doctor quoted notes, "Every Christmas I see young children in our emergency room who have had an eye destroyed by a BB pellet." Tips to keep your little one's eyes safe:
- Avoid toys that shoot projectiles.
- Avoid toys with parts that can shoot or fly off.
- Avoid toys with parts that may be shattered into smaller pieces.
