Reduce the Risk of Eye Injury

More than 600,000 recreationally related eye injuries occur every year. Emergency rooms treat more than 42,000 sports induced eye injuries annually. Every year as many as 13,000 people sustain legally blinding sports eye damage. Balls, racquets, elbows, fingers and even bacteria present a formidable danger. A sight threatening eye injury is a devastating lifelong tragedy often requiring decades of continuing medical care.
