Did you know that diabetes can impact vision? When blood sugar is too high, it damages nerves and blood vessels—especially the tiny, delicate blood vessels of the eye. The condition, called diabetic retinopathy, can cause blurriness, distorted vision and even blindness.

Whether your child wears prescription lenses or not, he or she should wear sports glasses or goggles when on the field or court. Made with polycarbonate plastic lenses, protective sports eyewear can take 10X the impact of regular lenses to protect eyes from injuries.

Every 13 minutes, a U.S. emergency room treats a sports-related eye injury. Of the 100,000 sports eye injuries each year, about 33,000 are kids and 90% could be prevented with safety eyewear designed especially for sports. Why risk a lifetime of good vision when injury is so easily avoided?

On Halloween, when choosing kids' costumes, opt for nontoxic face paint instead of a mask. Why? Masks significantly decrease the visual field. Kids in masks may more easily trip and injure themselves or may not see hazards such as cars backing out of a driveway or oncoming traffic in the street. Stay safe this Halloween!

If your child wears glasses, you may think that the physical lenses of the glasses will protect his eyes during sports. But regular eyeglasses and contact lenses do not offer enough protection to prevent eye injury. Get your child fitted for prescription sports goggles!

Your kids wear helmets and pads to protect their heads, knees and shins. But are you protecting their eyes? A speeding ball or rogue elbow to the eye during a game could cause a fractured eye socket, retinal detachment or even blindness. Your optometrist can recommend the proper eyewear to keep your student athlete seeing their best!
