A Holiday Guide to Toy Eye Safety

The holidays are rapidly approaching which means dolls, radio controlled airplanes, and Leapster Explorers. Well intentioned parents enjoy surprising the young children with the latest toys for the holidays.
It is crucial that family members instruct others about the restrictions about eye safety and choosing toys. Mishaps involving toys and games can occur, sometimes resulting in damaged vision.

What can adults do to safeguard kids from toy related eye injuries?

  1. Only purchase toys which are age suitable. Don't allow young siblings to play with toys intended for older children.
  2. Look for a toy that is made of strong, durable material and avoid toys with sharp edges. Make sure stick toys such as swords or pony sticks are smooth on the end.
  3. Supervise young children when they play.
  4. Prevent eye injuries by tossing out any toys or games with dangerous, pointed edges or firing projectiles like BB guns.

Before you dish out the latest toy or game that your child really wants, spend a moment to look over eye safety tips for children's toys. The holidays are a great time for creating special moments with your loved ones, not the emergency room doctor. Wishing you a happy and safe holiday season.

Because of the COVID 19 Virus we will only be staying open to meet the needs of patients with eye problems and emergency exams.

We will be deferring routine exams and delaying contact lens exams until further notice. We will be supporting our patients who were unable to come for their contact lens exams, due to these new restrictions, by extending your current contact lens prescriptions, whenever possible. Please call to discuss this option with us.

When all is settled, we will be calling our postponed patients to get them back in for those exams.

Patients over the age of 60 or in a high risk category will not be seen so please call ahead and speak to us before you come by.

If you have an emergency or medical issue, call us! We’re here to help!

Thank you so much!!! 972-210-2100
