You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!

While almost everyone is familiar with the famous line "you'll shoot your eye out," consider eye safety when purchasing toys for kids this year. While a toy gun or dart doesn't seem particularly dangerous on the surface, almost half of the 271,500 toy-related injuries treated in emergency rooms in 2017 were injuries to the head. Most of these injuries occurred in children under the age of 15. December is Safe Toys and Celebrations month from the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Before you go shopping, take a couple of minutes to view this video regarding safe toys for kids.
