Protective Eyewear

Sports related eye injuries are topping 100,000 per year, and are almost all preventable by protective eyewear. A survey by the Vision Council of America reports, that nearly 9 in 10 people believe children should regularly wear protective eyewear when playing sports, yet only 1 in 3 report that their children actually do.

Do you wear safety glasses for potentially dangerous activities? Hazards exist in every home in many different forms – sharp edges, falling objects, chemicals, noise, and a variety of other potentially dangerous situations. Whether you’re working on a weekend project in the garage or participating in recreational activities, wearing eye protection can significantly reduce the chances of sight damaging injuries.

Be sure to explain your personal and work habits with Dr. Becker, Dr. Moran, or Dr. Nielubowicz at your next eye exam to ensure you receive the best protection for your eyes.
