Regular prescription eye-glasses

are not a substitute for

protective eye wear.

Outdoor games and sports are an enjoyable and important part of children's lives. Whether playing catch in the back yard or participating in team sports at school, vision plays an important role in how well a child performs.

 

Specific visual skills needed for sports include:

• Clear distance vision

• Good depth perception

• Wide field of vision

• Effective eye-hand coordination

 

A child who consistently under performs a certain skill in a sport, such as always hitting the front of the rim in basketball or swinging late at a pitched ball in baseball, may have a vision problem.

 

Eye protection should also be a major concern to all student athletes, especially in certain high-risk sports. Thousands of children suffer sports-related eye injuries each year and nearly all can be prevented by using the proper protective eye wear.
