2. Avoid purchasing toys with sharp, protruding or projectile parts.
3. Keep toys that are made for older children away from younger children
4. If your child experiences an eye injury from a toy, seek immediate medical attention from an ophthalmologist.

Halloween is just a few days away. Here are some tips about costume contacts and how they can harm your eyes.
Four ways costume contacts can ruin your vision.
1. Scratches- the size of the contact lens is not fitted to your individual eye therefore it can scratch the outside of the eye.
2. Sores-costume contacts can cause corneal ulcers.
3. Both of the above can cause openings into the eye leading to infections.
4. Blindness- In extreme cases, problems from wearing costume contact lenses may lead to blindness or require surgery. For example, scarring from an infection can distort the cornea, requiring a corneal transplant to restore vision.
