Child Eye Care

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.
