Health Tip: Protect Kids' Eyes

(HealthDay News) -- A flying object or injury could affect your child's vision for life.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services offers these suggestions to help protect your child's eyes:

  • Don't buy or acquire any toys with sharp points or edges.

  • Keep sharp and pointy objects, such as knives or scissors, out of your child's reach.

  • Equip your child with the appropriate eye protection for his or her sport.

  • Make sure your child wears sunglasses that block 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays.
