April is Sports Eye Safety Month

admin Eye Care, Pepose Info

The American Academy of Ophthalmology has designated April as Sports Eye Safety Month

 Each year, tens of thousands of sports and recreation-related eye injuries occur. The good news is that 90 percent of serious eye injuries are preventable through use of appropriate protective eyewear.  The risk of eye injury can vary depending on the activity. Make sure the level of eye protection you or others in your family use is appropriate for the type of activity. Regular eyeglasses do not offer proper eye protection.

Please visit our optical center to get fitted for the appropriate protective eyewear for the sports in which you and your family participate during the Spring and Summer and please protect your eyes.
