You have heard that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When I have a patient sitting in my exam chair and he or she cannot see in one eye, or even have an artificial eye, it is usually due to a childhood injury that could have been prevented. Many times it is from an accident where they are playing with a toy themselves, a sibling, or friend. Remember to monitor children during play time.
