September is Home and Sports Eye Safety Month


In honor of Home and Sports Eye Safety Month, this post will focus on ways to keep your home eye safe particularly for kids. Don't wait until it's too late to ensure your house doesn't pose any series dangers to your children's eyes.

Generally, children are born with an underdeveloped visual system that grows with them. In the beginning, infants can see an object at close range only. Throughout their developing stages, kids are visually stimulated. Children's games and toys can be one of the easiest ways to stimulate children's vision. Nevertheless, it's important to consider that most childhood mishaps occur at home, many with toys.

What's the best way to avoid accidents? Here is some easy advice for choosing games for the house that are safe for your child's eyes.

First off, make sure long-handled playthings - such as sticks- aren't sharp-edged, and prohibit or monitor young children carefully if they are handling them. Though blocks are generally fine for almost any age, it's important to make sure the edges are rounded, in order to avoid eye accidents. It's suggested that you steer clear of toys that shoot objects in the air, such as arrows or guns. If you can't eliminate them altogether, then shooting toys should only be used when accompanied by a responsible adult. When letting older children play with chemicals or tools, make sure to give him or her safety glasses.

What else can be damaging in your house? Toys are only just the beginning. As a parent, it's your job to walk around your home and make sure there's nothing that could endanger your children and their eyes. One of the most common dangers is chemicals that haven't been locked up properly. If youngsters can access these chemicals they are in danger.

Yes, toys can occasionally cause damage, but it's important to not forget about all of the advantages they can provide. There are a number of toys tailored to particular ages that provide amazing ways to advance visual development. When choosing toys for children, look for those that refine coordination between the hands and eyes and will help kids to learn about colors, shapes and space. You may want to consider trying to look on the Internet before stopping at the toy store. This way you can ensure that your purchase is safe for your child's eyes and will enrich their visual development as well!
