Research shows that eye injuries account for 40,000 emergency room visits a year. This is the equivalent of one injury every 780 seconds! Eye Care experts report that most of the damage would have been simply prevented by using protective eyewear. Most injuries occur when adults and children are participating in sports or doing work around the house. Youth are particularly vulnerable to eye traumas, which frequently happen during sport activities.
Having your kids wear protective glasses during sports will protect them from possible eye injury. Protective eyewear can be found in an impressive variety of styles and shapes so allow your child to select their favorite look to ensure they will wear them.
In order to get the appropriate fit and the optimal measure of protection, speak to an experienced eye care professional for recommendations. Our staff members are happy to assist you in finding the right pair of protective eyewear for your child, depending on the kind of activity they will be utilized for. If your child has glasses, protective eyewear can be customized with prescription lenses from your eye care center. Ask about trivex or polycarbonate lenses if your child plays rough sports. They are not only more durable, they are also lighter than standard lenses, which tends to be more comfortable.
Be informed when it comes to purchasing safety eyewear. It's worth it when it comes to safeguarding your child's eyes!
