Protecting Your Children’s Eyes

Did you know that annual statistics show that sports-related eye injuries account for 40,000 trips to the hospital? That's one eye injury every 780 seconds! Eye Care experts report that 90% of the damage would have been simply prevented by wearing protective eyewear. Most eye damaging accidents occur when participating in recreational activities or during household chores. Kids are especially prone to accidents involving eye damage, which frequently occur during sport activities.

Children should guard their eyes with protective eyewear during most sports such as basketball or baseball. This will greatly reduce the likelihood of a sports related eye accident. Encouraging your child to select their own pair will also increase the likelihood that they won't mind wearing them.

In order to purchase safety glasses wisely, consult with a qualified optometrist for suggestions. Our professionals can help you in buying the best pair of glasses for your child, based on the kind of activity they will be used for. If your child wears glasses, safety glasses can be customized with prescription lenses from your vision care provider. Ask about trivex or polycarbonate lenses for a child that plays contact sports. They are not only more durable, they are also more light-weight than standard lenses, which offers greater comfort.

Be informed when purchasing safety eyewear. It's an easy way to safeguard your child's sight!
