Eyewear & Sports

Studies show that U.S. emergency rooms treat a sports-related eye injury every 13 minutes. About 43% of sports-related eye injuries occur in children younger than 15 years, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. But many of these injuries are preventable with protective eyewear.

Any child participating in high-risk sports, such as baseball, basketball and racquet sports, should wear protective eyewear with polycarbonate lenses. Dr. Stathacopolous can assess your child's unique visual system and recommend the proper eyeglasses or contact lenses for the visual skills needed for a specific sport.

Along with protective eyewear, children need specific visual skills for sports. Those skills often include distance vision, depth perception, wide field of vision and effective eye-hand coordination.

Children consistently underperforming in a particular sport may have a vision problem. Dr. Stathacopolous can help diagnose and correct this with eyeglasses or contact lenses to help improve sports vision performance. Schedule an appointment for your child today.
