Keeping your vision safe during the holidays
August 14, 2016

The holidays are a time when we all look forward to relaxing, attending parties, and spending time with the people we love. It should be a time of joy and celebration so don’t let a preventable eye injury ruin your time with your family and friends. Parents should be especially alert for potential holiday eye hazards to children.  Following a few helpful tips may help keep your holiday cheerful and your family safe.

    Do not use ornaments that are breakable, have small detachable parts, or metal hooks near the bottom of the tree where kids can reach them.

    If you have small children keep the lower branches of the tree trimmed so children don’t accidentally poke their eyes on the branches.

    Spray snow is very dangerous for the eyes.  The substance is made up of dangerous chemicals, so avoid spraying it near the eyes.

    Skiing, snowboarding, sledding, snowmobiling, and even snowball fights can cause accidental trauma to the eyes.  Everyone should wear goggles to protect their eyes while engaging in activities.

    Be careful of open flames, specifically fireplaces, which can cause burns to both children and adults.

Finally, the holidays can mean a lot of driving. Spotty and blurry vision can be a concern on long journeys. The best way to avoid this and be as safe as possible is to make plans ahead of time. Be sure to get enough sleep or stay close to your celebration. If this is not an option, here are some tips avoiding fatigue and improving alertness.

    Artificial tears can help soothe and refresh tired eyes.  They may also help contribute to clear vision.

    Take your time and plan for rest breaks every couple of hours.  Get out of your vehicle and take a short walk or do some exercise to get your blood pumping.

    If possible, share the driving.

    Don’t drink and drive!

    Use air conditioning if your vehicle has it.  Cool air will keep you more alert and will help avoid frustration and stress caused by fatigue.

Whatever you do this holiday season make it joyous and relaxing but don’t let the celebration get in the way of your safety. If you have any questions about these eye tips or any other eye care issue, you can always ask me on Vishal eye Hospital Facebook page. I promise a prompt response and I would be happy to help you ensure your family’s eye safety this holiday season.

    Mullekkin kelpaisi hiusten oma väri (maantie) mutta harmaantuminen alkoi jo useampi vuosi sitten. Ilman värjäämistä olen siis harmaahiiren ja maantien välimuoto. Voin kertoa, että se ei todellakaan ole kiva yhdistelmä...yleisilme on tosi väsähtäny jos hiukset on "omissa väreissään". Tosin ei toi värjääminenkään näiden myrkkyjuttujen takia oikein enää innosta.

    Personally, Im horrified that 75% arent planning to vote green. How could anybody seriously contemplate voting for the dirty-tricks labor party or the utterly incompetent libs? Im still hoping (fantasizing) for a late swing to green to make them the majority party.

    Et pendant que tout le monde s’écharpe (la presse en premier) sur cette question qui ne regarde que la Ministre et sa vie privée (elle est libre d’user de son congé maternité ou pas, et d’élever son enfant comme elle l’entend!), on occulte la question de la disparition programmée des juges d’instructions.C’est vraiment bien fichu, ça, on s’intéresse plus à la vie privée des membres du gouvernement plutôt qu’à leurs actes.Qui affecteront NOS vies privée.

    When I received this, the pump was broken which was unfortunate. However, I love this product for my extremely curly hair. Don't use too much or your hair looks greasy.

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform youre using? Im planning to start my own blog soon but Im having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and Im looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Mirrors of different designs and sizes are used in bathrooms, according to the size of the bathroom, and individual preference. One of the most prominent functions of a bathroom mirror is to reflect the available light. This may be natural or artificial light.
