I’m not sure about you, but I love the fall especially football season!  Schools are now back in session and the collegiate and NFL football and tailgating season are underway (Go Hoosiers!)  With the start of sporting activities here in the Hoosier state, Indiana eye doctors are urging parents of athletes to require protective sport eye gear for their children.  Eye care doctors at Dr. Tavel Family Eye Care do the same and encourage patients to shield your eyes when playing contact sports like football.

Eye injuries in children (many athletes) top the list for causes of blindness according to the National Eye Institute (NEI).   Indiana eye centers see many of these injuries which include corneal abrasions, blunt trauma and penetrating injuries as mentioned in the NEI article “Sports Eye Protection Should Be Part of Team Uniform.”  Injuries like these can cause temporary or permanent vision loss.  Importantly though, most if not all of these injuries can be prevented through wearing proper sports eye protection.

Eyeguards are recommended for athletes participating in baseball, basketball, football, soccer, and hockey.  Any kind of sporting eye wear should be made of polycarbonate Rec Spec sports eye gear available at Dr. Tavelmaterials which are lightweight, block 100% of UV rays (most of these sports are played outside), and are durable for rough wear.  Eyeguards can be fitted for most prescriptions and contact lens wearers so no athlete should go without this fall. Rec Specs found at Dr. Tavel Family Eye Care have these qualties and can be fit for any athlete hitting the field, court, rink, or diamond.  Better yet, Rec Specs at Dr. Tavel is the first protective sports eyewear brand to receive the AOA seal of acceptance making them the best protective eye gear products for your athletes!

So bring on fall, football, and also the sports eye protection!
