Prevent Blindness has declared September as Sports Eye Safety Month to help educate the public on the best ways to protect eyes and keep vision healthy while playing sports. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), 90 percent of serious eye injuries could be prevented by wearing appropriate protective eyewear.  Although not all sports require it, it is safer to wear eye protection. A few where you would benefit from having safety glasses are football, baseball, basketball, racquetball, tennis, pickleball, and archery.
