- 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.
