April is Sports Eye Safety Month

According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), there are thousands of sports-related eye injuries each year in the U.S. Here's a quick sports eye safety checklist to help you prevent eye injury!

✅ Ensure your eye protection is labeled “ASTM F803 approved” – it has the highest level of protection.
✅ Ensure your sports eye protection is made of impact-resistant materials, such as polycarbonate.
✅ Buy sports frames that come with rubber padding to cushion the glasses against the face.
✅ Ensure that your sports eyewear has a scratch-resistant coating for safe, visual clarity.
✅ Check in on peripheral vision to make sure there are no obstructed visual fields.

We look forward to setting you up for eye health success!
