Austin Sports Medicine: Sports Eye Safety

It’s time for another Austin Sports Medicine 101 class!

April is Sports Eye Safety Month. If you haven’t had your yearly eye exam, now is a good time.  Keep your eye on the ball and your vision clear!

For some sports, eye protection can make a lifelong difference in eye health. If you play a sport with a ball or projectile which might impact the eye, wearing safety glasses will help prevent injury, so see your local eye doctor for options. In some sports this is mandatory so be sure to get safety glasses for your sport, not just sunglasses!
