April is national youth safety month!

There are around 35 million children who play organized sports each year and over 600,000 sports-related eye injuries annually.  While we recommend wearing eye protection when participating in sporting activities regardless of age, it is especially important for youth who tend to be less experienced and skilled.  Wearing eye protection can significantly decrease the likelihood of your child experiencing an eye injury, it is estimated that more than 90% of sport-related eye injuries could have been be prevented just by wearing a pair of sports glasses.

Basketball, field hockey, lacrosse, racquetball, baseball, softball, wrestling, boxing and martial arts are considered to be high-risk sports thus protective eyewear should always be worn, even when corrective lenses are not required.  Also note that there is a significant difference between your child’s everyday glasses and sports glasses. Check out to learn more about what frames are best suited for your favorite sport.

Stop by Complete Family Eyecare anytime to check out our Liberty Sport collection and take advantage of our second pair discount*, 25% off a second pair purchased within 30 days of your purchase of a complete set of glasses.
