Athletes: How-to Protect Your Eyes

April 19, 2017 12:24 am

Whether you’re a pro athlete, a weekend warrior, or the parent of a little all-star, it’s important to consider eye safety when playing sports.

Here are some tips for both the professional athlete and the Little League star to stay safe:

- Athletes should wear sports eye protection that meets requirements set by appropriate organizations.

- Parents should make sure that children wear eye protection. Most often, those who sustain sports-related eye injuries are 18 years old or younger.

- Eye protection can weaken with age and may no longer provide adequate protection. Consider replacing when damaged or yellowed.

- For basketball, racquet sports, soccer and field hockey, wear protective eyewear with polycarbonate lenses.

- Athletes who wear contacts or glasses should also wear appropriate protective eyewear. Contacts offer no protection and glasses do not provide enough defense.

- Professional athletes should also wear sports goggles that meet national standards.
