Sports Eye Safety Awareness Month
Sports Eye Safety Awareness Month, observed in April, is a time to increase awareness of sports eye injuries, promote the need for a cure after injury, and to spur advocacy on behalf of those suffering the emotional, financial and physical burden of sports eye injuries.
Tens of thousands of sports and recreation-related eye injuries occur each year. The good news is that ninety percent of serious eye injuries are preventable through use of appropriate protective eyewear.
