April is Sports Eye Safety Month

EyeDeal Optical wants to help keep you and your eyes healthy.

Each year, an estimated 100,000 people are hurt by sports-related eye injuries. About 13,500 of these injuries result in permanent vision loss. In support of Sports Eye Safety Month this April, the American Academy of Ophthalmology reminds athletes everywhere that the great majority of sports-related eye injuries can be avoided by simply wearing the proper protection.

The right protective eyewear is the best defense against eye injury, whether you’re a high school player or an NBA star. Protective eyewear made with polycarbonate lenses is the best choice for basketball players, as well as for those who play racquet sports, soccer, and field hockey.

All athletes should wear sports eye protection that meets requirements set by appropriate organizations. Athletes who wear contacts or glasses should also wear appropriate protective eyewear. Contacts offer no protection and glasses do not provide enough defense.

Let us help you find the perfect pair of Protective Sports Eyewear for you. Call today to schedule your appointment.
