Children Eye Safety

According to a recent report, approximately 30 percent of eye injuries among children under 16 are sports related. And yet, 90 percent of those injuries are preventable.

Children are particularly susceptible to eye injuries because of their underdeveloped depth p e rception, fearless style of play and athletic immaturity. The American Optometric Association(AOA) recommends that children wear eye protection for the following sports and recreational activities:

  • Baseball
  • Softball
  • Racquetball
  • Tennis
  • Badminton
  • Soccer
  • Ice hockey
  • Street hockey
  • Basketball
  • Lacrosse
  • Archery
  • Fencing
  • Boxing
