Health Tip: Invest in Protective Eyewear for Sports

Make sure they fit and work properly

(HealthDay News) -- Wearing protective eye gear when playing sports can help prevent serious eye injuries.

The Cleveland Clinic lists these guidelines when selecting protective eyewear:

  • Buy your eye guards at an optical store or sports store, and make sure someone familiar with your eyes and the sport you play fits you for the guards.
  • Make sure your eyewear comes with the correct lenses, which should be held securely in place.
  • Purchase eye guards that offer cushion or padding along the bridge of the nose and eyebrows to avoid cuts or damage to the face.
