Sports Eye Injuries & Protective Sports Eyewear
When it comes to protecting eyes during sports activities, eye care professionals are in strong agreement that proper eye protection can reduce the number and severity of eye injuries. Yet, when it comes to recommending proper protective sports eyewear, many are not proactively initiating the conversation with patients or parents, according to new research.
Nearly 400 eye care professionals participated in the “Sports Eye Injuries & Protective Sports Eyewear” survey conducted by Jobson Research® in conjunction with ISVA and Zyloware Eyewear®. The survey was designed to understand eye care professionals’ experiences in treating sports-related eye injuries and gauge their knowledge and attitudes about sports protective eyewear, along with factors that influence their decision to recommend protective eyewear to their patients.
