However, most people do not know that over ninety percent of all sports injuries involving your eyes are preventable.

Our Meridian optometry doctors at Primary Eyecare & Optical of Meridian can administer sports vision and eye care so that when you play a sport, your eyes are always protected.

Preventable Tips to Avoiding Sports Vision Injuries

In most cases, sport eye injuries are the result of not wearing appropriate eye gear and sports vision is imperative during and after playing sports. Taking the appropriate steps to prevent sports eye injuries is a good start.

  • Wear eye safety goggles when playing sports, like racquetball or basketball. This will protect your eyes from any possible damage from a flying object. 

  • The use of batting helmets with polycarbonate face shields can help in sports, like hockey or baseball. This type of plastic is known to be lightweight, but strong enough to be shatterproof. 

  • Know that wearing regular eyeglasses or contacts is not enough to prevent eye injuries, preventive gear is essential.
