No one chooses gifts with the intent to harm, but some popular children's toys can cause serious eye injuries. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 250,000 toy-related injuries are treated in emergency rooms each year, and almost half of these injuries affect the head or face - including the eyes. Unfortunately, most of these injuries happen to children under age 15. Some propelling toys, like airsoft guns, BB guns, paintball guns and darts can be particularly hazardous, with the potential to cause serious eye injuries such as corneal abrasion, ocular hyphema, traumatic cataract, increased intraocular pressure, and even permanent vision loss. The good news that most eye injuries can be easily prevented by following EyeSmart's toy safety tips. Click here for the top five toy safety tips to protect eyes.
