Its hard to believe the Holiday Season has officially begun.  With better than expected numbers on Black Friday, we are hopeful for a rebound in the economy.  The Holiday Season can be fun, but it can also be hazardous for the eyes. By paying attention to these great eye safety tips, many can avoid serious accident and have a happy holiday season.

  • While decorating the Christmas tree with children in mind, don’t put ornaments that are breakable, have small detachable parts, metal hooks or look like food or candy on the lower branches where small children can reach them.

  • Wearing gloves while decorating with “angel hair” an also help avoid eye injuries. “Angel hair” is made from spun glass similar to fiberglass and can cause major irritation if particles are rubbed into the eye.

  • Spray Snow is also very dangerous to the eyes. Avoid spraying the aerosol near the eyes, follow directions carefully, and apply properly in ventilated areas.

Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree.

In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.
