Although you might not be able to prevent your child from needing glasses, there are definitely measures that can be taken to prevent eye injury. When your child is walking with a sharp object, always encourage him to face the pointed side down. Avoid playing with slingshots, BB guns, broken toys or any other flying objects that can poke out an eye. Do not ever allow your child to play with fireworks if an adult is not present.

In most cases, children should not be handling these hazardous elements in general. Keep harmful chemicals out of your children's reach. With sports such as ice hockey, tennis, baseball, basketball or squash, it's recommended that your child wear safety glasses. When your child is playing outside, make sure he or she is wearing sunglasses to prevent any damage that might be done from harmful UV rays.
