WICHITA, Kansas -- The famous movie quote is, "You'll shoot your eye out," but doctors in Wichita say it's not joke.
"The Airsoft guns are a problem," says Dr. David Chacko, Grene Vision Group. "They just need to be treated like real guns."
Chacko says his vision group has seen more than a dozen patients in the last few months. One boy lost sight in one of his eyes from a plastic bb shot from an Airsoft gun.
"It entered the eye," explains Dr. Chacko. "Serious damage to the eye. Oh, these injuries, frequently they cause severe bleeding in the eye. That can and does cause high pressure and risk of glaucoma down the road. And I think parents are thinking is, it's a toy. And it's not a toy."
Dr. Chacko says some common rules to follow include parents supervising while kids have an Airsoft gun. Also, do not let kids use them without eye protection.
"Glasses are good. Safety glasses are better," says Dr. Chacko. "But real, secure goggles are best."
Two other eye vision groups in Wichita say they have treated moderate to severe eye injuries recently from Airsoft guns.
"BB guns are bad when someone gets hit in the eye," says Dr. Chacko. "But these Airsoft guns need to not be treated like a toy. Kids should not be running around shooting each other."
