December is "Safe Toys and Celebrations" Month
The holiday season is a time for family, fun and festivity - but it can also be a dangerous time as each year people suffer eye injuries caused by unsafe toys and celebrations.
Because December is Safe Toys and Celebrations Month, the American Academy of Ophthalmology (www.aao.org) reminds parents of the dangers that some toys may pose to children's eyes.
|When choosing gifts, select toys and gifts appropriate for a child's age and maturity level.|
|Avoid toys with sharp protruding parts like paint or pellet guns, rifles and darts.|
|If you are giving sports equipment, be sure to include appropriate protective gear, such as helmets, facemasks or goggles.|
|Celebrating the New Year ushers in the excitement to include fireworks.|
|Schedule your holiday to attend professional fireworks displays.|
|Never allow children to play with fireworks or sparklers because there is no safe way to handle them.|
