April is Sports Eye Safety Month
According to the National Eye Institute at the National Institute of Health, 100,000 children will visit a doctor because of an sports-related eye injury this year. You don’t need to become a statistic: order your child’s protective eyewear before an eye injury happens. Sports vision packages including the frame and lenses with quality lens treatments are available at one low price. And never wear regular prescription glasses in sport; playing in our dress clothes is impractical — playing with our everyday glasses on is not only impractical but dangerous for the orbit, the eye, and the surrounding tissue. You wouldn’t allow your little leaguer to practice in his/her Sunday best, so don’t have them play without proper vision correction and protection.
