Did you know that every 13 minutes an emergency room in the United States treats a sports-related eye injury?

Don’t be another statistic. You can protect your vision by wearing proper eye protection. Prevent Blindness America has declared September as Sports Eye Safety Awareness Month.

Your Indiana eye doctor recommends that you wear polycarbonate lenses while participating in sports. Polycarbonate eyewear is 10 times stronger than other plastics …and it won’t hinder your performance!

Eye injuries are painful! The impact ranges from temporary vision loss to complete blindness. “Whether it be goggles for basketball or faceshields for football players, everyone must make eye protection part of their uniform,” said Hugh R. Parry, president and CEO of Prevent Blindness America. “And we can’t stress enough how important it is for those who have diminished or no vision in one eye to protect their healthy eye while playing sports. An eye accident can happen in a split second yet impact the rest of your life.”

Check with Dr. Tavel and his board certified associates to learn about the eyewear recommended for your favorite sport. Play smart and make safety part of your game plan!
