Toys and Eye Safety

Holiday season is upon us which means dolls, radio controlled airplanes, and Leapster Explorers. Adoring parents delight in surprising the favorite little ones with the newest toys to start off the New Year.
It is crucial that parents teach others about the guidelines about eye-safe toys. Mishaps with unsafe toys and games do take place, occasionally resulting in blindness.
 
How can adults avoid toy related harm?
 
  1. Remember, age suitable toys only! Do not permit little children to use toys made for older children.
  2. Show children how to play safely. If possible, before allowing children to play carefully check new toys and games for sharp, or pointed edges.
  3. Look after small children as they play.
  4. Promote eye safety awareness by throwing out toy or games that have dangerous, pointed edges or projectiles.
 
Before purchasing the latest game that your child ''must have'', spend a few minutes to read eye safety precautions for children's toys. Anyone who has ever watched ''A Christmas Story'' should have learned that already. Happy Holidays to all.

Sheridan Optometric Centre is proud to support "Optometry Giving Sight", a charity to prevent blindness and vision loss globally.  We took part in the World Sight Day challenge, raising $2133.74

All our examination fees on October 6 and October 9 were donated to this worthy charity.  Thank you for helping us fight blindness worldwide.

Golfers were also invited to bid on fabulous products donated by Sheridan Optometric Centre at the silent auction. This helped towards raising $75,000.00 to double the capacity of the neonatal intensive care unit at Credit Valley Hospital.
