Eye Injury Prevention

 An eye injury can happen at any moment but sometimes can effect a child for a lifetime. Parents, coaches, schools and teams should make eye injury prevention a top priority in order to advocate a more comprehensive awareness about their athlete’s physical health.

Here are some preventative tips to make sure your athlete’s ocular health is protected:

  • If your child wears prescription glasses schedule an appointment with your child’s vision health provider to get fitted for prescription sport eyewear.
  • Make sure your athlete wears their protective gear consistently during practices and games.
  • Make sure the eyewear has anti-fog coating.
  • All athletes should get regular eye exams with their professional provider to monitor eye health and ensure performance.
