It’s the time of year when we think about others and even purchase gifts. It’s important to consider age and skill levels when planning their holiday present.

Top things to consider:

  1. Never give a small child toys with small parts. This includes magnets, button batteries, or anything they can choke on.
  2. Look for labels that have passed a safety inspection. “ATSM” means they have passed the American Society for Testing and Materials standards.
  3. Sports equipment should always have safety gear with them. Examples include a bike with a helmet or eye protection for nerf guns.
  4. Make sure all crayons and markers are listed as “non-toxic”.

Overall, we hope you have a fun and safe holiday season. If any eye emergencies should arise, please contact our office with any questions.
