Health Tip: Protect Kids' Eyes

Avoid toys with sharp edges
(HealthDay News) -- A flying object or injury could affect your child's vision for life.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services offers these suggestions to help protect your child's eyes:
Don't buy or acquire any toys with sharp points or edges. Keep sharp and pointy objects, such as knives or scissors, out of your child's reach. Equip your child with the appropriate eye protection for his or her sport. Make sure your child wears sunglasses that block 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays.
