Eye injuries from toy guns are on the rise.

A Stanford University School of Medicine study found injuries in children from non-powder firearms, which includes paintball guns, airsoft guns, BB guns and pellet guns, are up more than 500 percent from just a few years ago.

Injuries can range from relatively minor to very serious. Doctors and the National Rifle Association agree that once a family owns one of these guns, eye protection, safe storage and proper training are a must.

Health Specialist Denise Dador has the full report in the video above.
