Vision Safety

  • Have children's eyes checked before sports participation. If they can't see, they can't duck the puck or duck the ball.

  • Pick the right eye guards. Each sport has its own kind, but what's most important is that the eye guards fit your child.

  • Buy prescription glasses made of polycarbonate plastic, which can withstand a projectile traveling at 90 mph.

  • For contact sports, choose eye guards or glasses with padding at the nose and brow.

  • Chose glasses with strong frames and secure them with a strap.

  • Ask your eye doctor about prescription sports eye guards.
