Protect Your Young Athlete’s Eyes With Cargo Eye Care

As we dive into another season of youth sports, it’s essential to prioritize eye safety for our young athletes. According to recent studies, over 40 percent of annual eye injuries are related to sports activities. With basketball, baseball, and softball leading the pack in causing eye injuries, it’s crucial to take preventive measures to safeguard our children’s vision.

In observance of Sports Eye Safety Month this April, Cargo Eye Care of Las Colinas is committed to providing valuable insights and solutions to protect your athlete’s eyes from potential harm. From minor corneal abrasions to more severe injuries like retinal detachments, the spectrum of sports-related eye injuries underscores the importance of proactive protection.

5 Essential Tips To Safeguard Your Child’s Vision

  • Opt for Appropriate Eyewear: Ensure your child wears protective eyewear with shatterproof polycarbonate lenses, especially during high-impact sports like basketball, soccer, or field hockey.
  • Equip with Helmets: For sports such as baseball, ice hockey, or lacrosse, invest in helmets featuring polycarbonate face masks or wire shields to add an extra layer of defense.
  • Replace Old Gear: Don’t overlook the importance of regularly inspecting and replacing eye protection when damaged or aged. Weak, outdated gear can compromise its effectiveness.
  • Upgrade from Regular Glasses: Regular prescription glasses may not suffice during sports activities. Consider sports goggles to provide comprehensive protection for both eyes and frames.
  • Prioritize Safety Standards: Look for eye protection that meets the stringent standards set by the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) to ensure optimal safety.
