Doctors have issued on warning over a Christmas must-have toy, warning that Nerf guns can cause irreversible eye damage. Experts from the UK’s leading eye hospital said bullets from the guns and blasters could lead to internal bleeding around the eye as well as issues such as blurred vision.

And they warned that children were increasingly watching YouTube videos adising them how to ‘soup up’ the toys, showing them how to make them shoot even harder, faster and further.

Children and adults who play with the guns should wear protective eye goggles, they said, while calling for “reconsideration of the safe age limits for Nerf gun use in children.”
