April is national Sports Eye Safety Month

With the spring, as well as often nicer weather, comes an increase in the number of sports related eye injuries. Every year, many children and adults sustain sports related eye injuries that could be avoided with the right safety measures. Using proper eye protection while playing sports is particularly important in high-impact sports or those that expose you to the sun such as basketball, softball, football, racquetball, full-contact martial arts, volleyball, or fishing.

Decrease your risk of a sports eye accident by using the correct protective eyewear right for the sport you are participating in. This will keep you safe from injury and will often also have lenses that minimize your exposure to ultra-violet light for when you're outdoors. This sort of eye wear is designed to withstand frequently occurring accidents. Conventional frames and lenses typically aren't adequate for full protection, meaning that even just a minor collision can become a serious eye injury that could potentially threaten your eyesight.

Eye safety goes beyond using the appropriate eyewear. Your vision is a primary factor of your ability to play sports, so you must have good vision. For those who already need glasses, you might need protective sports glasses or goggles with a prescription to make it easier to be safe. If you're fitted with contacts, you may require a slightly different lens than the lenses you use everyday. Speak to your eye care professional about the options available to you.

Each sport has a range of needs and risks, so allow your optometrist to identify your unique needs and fit you with the right glasses or contact lenses that best fit your visual skills. This is key in helping you get the edge that'll help you excel and have fun and be safe when you play sports.

All sports have different needs and risks, so allow your eye care professional to determine your unique needs and provide the correct glasses or contact lenses best for your vision. This will only help you gain the winning edge that'll help you excel and have fun safely.
