Sports players "need adequate eye protection"

Sports players might wish to don adequate eye protection products in order to stop themselves from being hurt, it has been suggested.

According to the Prevent Blindness America COO, Jeff Todd, baseball is just one activity which people might get involved in now that winter has passed and the warmer months of the year are approaching.

Mr Todd, who also acts as the chair elect of the American Public Health Association (APHA) vision care section, commented: "With sports such as baseball and softball gearing up in the spring, now is an ideal time to remind everyone to make sure that proper eye protection is part of the uniform."

Prevent Blindness America and the APHA believe that children in particular may need to gain decent eye protection when they get involved in sports activities.

Meanwhile, harsh soaps are among the things which people should avoid using if they are concerned about experiencing dry eye syndrome in the near future, Prevent Blindness America also recently suggested.
