LOS ANGELES (PRNewswire-USNewswire) -- Parents should take extra care in selecting toys for young children and supervising their play during the holidays, according to a leading eye surgeon.
According to Dr. Mark Borchert, director, The Vision Center at Children's Hospital Los Angeles, certain toys, such as BB guns, pose a particular danger for young children. "While a BB gun pellet may not break the skin of a young child, it can puncture his eye very easily. Unfortunately, every Christmas I see young children in our emergency room who have had an eye destroyed by a BB pellet."
