Every year, close to 6,000 Americans suffer an eye injury related to playing basketball alone, according to estimates by Prevent Blindness America.  

Eye injuries from any sport can include infection, corneal abrasions, blunt trauma, inflamed iris, fracture of the eye socket, swollen or detached retinas or even a traumatic cataract.  And in some cases a significant eye injury can cause permanent vision loss.

Because most eye injuries can be avoided by wearing proper eye protection, Prevent Blindness America has dedicated September as Sports Eye Safety Awareness Month to educate the public on the best ways to keep eyes safe to stay in the game!!

Stop in or give us a call if you have questions about the best ways to protect your eyes while playing sports. Check out our fun collection of sports eye wear--customizable with your own team number!!
