Holiday Safety Tips for Parents and Their Kids

Holiday Safety for Kids

Can you believe it’s that time? The holidays are here! And that means shopping for toys for your fav little ones.

As always, The American Academy of Ophthalmology urges parents to avoid buying toys that can cause serious eye injuries, or even blindness. In 2017 there were over a quarter of a million reported toy-related injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms.

Common eye injuries caused by mishaps with toys can range from a minor scratch to the front surface of the eye (called a corneal abrasion) to very serious, sight-threatening injuries such as corneal ulcers, traumatic cataracts, bleeding inside the eye and retinal detachment.

Dr. Lee Friedman

Dr. Lee Friedman, Florida Eye’s Pediatric Ophthalmology, ROP & Pediatric & Adult Strabismus Specialist says that many of these accidents can be avoided by reading labels and using some common sense.

"Parents need to have a high level of awareness regarding the damage not only toys, but everyday items can also do to the eyes. I’ve seen it all — knives, scissors, straws, pencils, pellets, bb’s, nerf gun balls, paint balls, etc. Anything thrown at the eye with force can lead to permanent damage."

“The techs and doctors were so patient with me. They put me at such ease and I really appreciated their hand-holding because I was so nervous about my procedure.”

Thanks again! Julie

“I am so very grateful to have found such a wonderful certified ophthalmologist in your team and will recommend you and Florida Eye to all my friends.”

Sincerely, Virginia

“Kudos to the Florida Eye team. The techs were just as patient and caring with my father as the doctor was, and that really helped him make his decision.”

All the best, Joseph
