Sports and Protective Eyewear
Participating in sports is a great way to stay in shape and keep your eyes healthy. When gearing up for a sporting activity, all athletes should consider protective eyewear, regardless if it’s for professional, amateur, or recreational purposes.
Risks of eye injuries vary from low to high depending on the type of sport you’re participating in, however, no sport is exempt. Eye injuries have been reported in low risk sports, such as swimming, bicycling, and gymnastics, as well as the more obvious high risk sports such as baseball, basketball, racquetball, and lacrosse.
