{DRY EYE CENTER}

Eye injuries associated with sports are a leading cause of blindness in the U.S. The good thing is that it’s possible to take some safety precautions and prevent these injuries. At Eye See in Lincolnshire, IL, our optometrist can help you prevent sports eye injuries by prescribing the right eyewear. If you have gotten an injury, we also offer treatment and also give you prevention tips to undertake in the future. We look forward to helping you protect your eyes and address any condition you might have, to maximize your sports performance and general wellness.

Common Sports Injuries

Blunt trauma is the most common type of eye sports injury. These happen when a flying object hits the eye. Blunt trauma may cause conditions like:

  • Orbital eye fracture
  • Ruptured globe
  • Detached retina

A person may also get a penetrative injury. Penetrating injuries can occur when someone scratches your eyes during sports or when eyeglasses are broken, and the tiny glass piece penetrates through the eyes. Radiation injuries can also occur when the eyes are exposed to ultraviolet rays. These injuries are most common in outdoor water sports.

Sports Eye Safety Tips

  • Always wear a face mask that has a shatterproof shield when playing contact sports.
  • Always have protective eyewear during sports like baseball, soccer, and field hockey. Our eye doctor will advise you on the specific eyewear you should get depending on the nature of the sports you participate in and the condition of your vision.
  • If you wear contact lenses, consider wearing soft lenses when participating in sports.
  • See an eye doctor immediately after an eye injury to prevent permanent damage to your eyes. Some injuries may seem mild but may cause irreversible damages when not addressed on time
