Help Prevent a child from becoming an eye injury statistic!




You can take action now!

If you are a parent, guardian, coach or sports program director of young athletes, you can help to increase the safety of your children’s eyes while playing in sports with known eye injury risks.


The Facts of sports eye injuries….

  • More than 600,000 eye injuries related to sports and recreation occur every year
  • Over 85% of kids do not use protective eye wear in situations that represent a risk of eye injury
  • Every 13 minutes a person with a sports related eye emergency visits the emergency room
  • More than 90% of all eye injuries can be prevented with the use of the proper protective eye wear

If your child or student is wearing eyeglasses now, remember that regular glasses and contact lenses do not protect fully against injury.  In fact regular eyewear can cause more severe injury to the face structure and lens breakage can severely damage the eye.


Sports glasses have lenses that optimize vision for best performance with 100% Ultra-violet protection, wrap feature to maximize peripheral vision and frames and lenses that are impact resistant.


Primary Eye Care Associates supports Prevent Blindness America, who states that over 90% of all sports related eye injuries are preventable.
