"'Eye injuries are the leading cause of blindness in children in the United States and most injuries occurring in school-aged children are sports-related,' states the National Eye Institute. 'Protective eyewear, which is made of ultra-strong polycarbonate, is 10 times more impact resistant than other plastics, and does not reduce vision. All children who play sports should use protective eyewear -- not just those who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses. For children who do wear glasses or contact lenses, most protective eyewear can be made to match their prescriptions.'"
