Prioritize eye safety when buying toys for children, experts urge AS the holiday season gets into full swing, the American Academy of Ophthalmology are urging people to avoid giving children toys that can cause eye injuries, following research published earlier this year showing a rise in children's eye injuries from toy guns.

Slide3:

In 2014, emergency departments across the US treated over 250,000 children under the age of 12 for toy-related injuries. Research conducted by Stanford University School of Medicine, CA, published earlier this year shows that the rate of children's eye injuries from non-powder guns   rose by 511% between 2010-12, when 3,000 children received treatment for eye injuries from paintball guns, airsoft guns, BB guns and pellet guns.

Slide4:

The most common eye injuries that result from playing with these toys are corneal abrasions, or scratches on the surface of the eye, and hyphema , where blood pools in the front of the eye.

Slide5:

Sometimes the injury can be more severe and cause blindness - for instance, due to rupture of the eyeball or detachment of the retina. The experts warn, however, that other projectile or flying toys can also harm children's eyes. These include slingshots , dart guns and even the increasingly popular drone, which is often treated as a toy.
