Dear Parents,
Here are few guidelines to prevent your child from eye injuries;
Dont let your children play with sealed bottles.
When you open a bottle, keep the nozzle from your face and eyes.
Remember that plastic bottles or cans are much safer for your children than glass bottles.
Keep bottles in fridge and not in freezer.
Choose safe toys for your children, which suit their age. Avoid buying darting toyssuch as bow and arrow, which may hit or injure the eye from a distance.
Watch your children while at play, and teach them safe activities. Stone throwing during play may cause severe injuries, which could be avoided.
Keep detergents, disinfectants and chemicals in a safe place and out of reach for children.
Dont let your child play with fireworks which are dangerous.
Keep the children away from kitchen ware which could harm them.
Teach your children how to protect their eyes by wearing sunglasses when they are out. You should also prevent them from looking directly at the sun.
Dont allow your children to use laser pens.
Prevention is the best way to protect your children's sight.
