Did you know that every year approximately 40,000 sports-related eye injuries are severe enough to necessitate emergency room care? This is an injury every 780 seconds! Eye Care professionals report that the vast majority of the accidents would have been easily prevented by using proper eye protection. The majority of eye damaging accidents happen when adults and children are enjoying sports or doing work at the house. Kids are especially vulnerable to accidents involving eye damage, which frequently occur during sport activities.

Children should wear protective eyewear during most sports such as soccer, tennis or karate. This will almost entirely limit their chances of a sports related eye injury. Encouraging your child to choose the protective glasses they like best will also increase the likelihood that they won't mind wearing them.

To ensure you get a good fit and the correct measure of protection, speak to an experienced optician for recommendations. Our professionals can assist you in purchasing the best pair of goggles for your child, based on the way they will be used. If your child wears glasses, safety glasses can be purchased with prescription lenses from your vision care provider. Look into trivex or polycarbonate lenses if your child engages in heavy duty sports. They are not only more shatter-proof, they are also more light-weight than plastic lenses, which provides extra comfort.

Don't skimp when buying a pair of protective glasses. It's a simple way to guard your child's sight!
