Sports Eye Safety Month

By April 21, 2007

Follow me on:

Sports Eye Safety MonthFor most parents, sports eye safety is limited to wearing prescription safety goggles instead of their regular glasses...

That is unfortunate, because according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, eye injuries from sports affect more than 40,000 people each year and sports are the leading cause of childhood eye injuries.

Eye safety isn't limited to sports though, and it is important to remember that you need to prevent eye injuries everyday.
