Sports Eye Safety!

Sports Eye Injury Statistics

Every year, 42,000 athletes have to go to the emergency room for eye injuries, and eye injuries like these are the leading cause of blindness in children still in school. An impact from a ball or another player in just the wrong place can lead to a host of injuries including corneal abrasions, fracturing of the orbital bone (eye socket), or swollen or detached retinas, just to name a few.

For outdoor sports, the sun can also be a problem, damaging players’ eyes with harmful UV rays.

Along with wearing the right eyewear, please keep in mind to wear a helmet when needed. For instance, if you play baseball; helmets with face shields are always the best choice.
