Prevent Blindness America has a website dedicated to helping parents like you make that decision. StarPupils.org was created to educate parents on the importance of eye safety in sports and the proper eyewear for various sporting activities. For baseball, your Indiana eye doctor suggets a faceguard made of polycarbonate material. A polycarbonate shield is also recommended for football. Sports eye guards are recommended for all sports.

The National Eye Institute reports that 43% of sports and recreational eye injuries occur in children under the age of 15. Don’t let your child be next! Dr. Tavel and his board certified associates are available to assist you in deciding on the best vision correction for your child athlete.

Remember to gear up with eye protection prior to participating in sports!
