Sports Eye Safety Month


Company: Prevent Blindness America
Web site:

Tens of thousands of sports and recreation-related eye injuries occur each year. The good news is that 90 percent of serious eye injuries are preventable through use of appropriate protective eye wear. Sports Eye Safety Month encourages parents and children to make eye safety part of the game plan. Every 13 minutes, an emergency room treats a sports-related eye injury. And, 43 percent of sports-related eye injuries are to children ages 14 and younger. 

Some people also celebrate Sports Eye Safety Month in April.
