You can prevent eye injuries in children by ensuring chemicals and other harmful substances are out of reach. Carefully select children's' toys, avoiding objects such as darts, BB and pellet guns, and any other toys that involve projectile objects. Furthermore, it is important to remember that simple items such as scissors, safety pins, rubber bands, etc., can all potentially cause damage to a child's eye if they are not closely supervised. During sporting activities, the best way to avoid eye injuries is to wear protective eye gear.
