Play Safe, Protect Your Eyes

The Eyecare Trust State:

"Sport is now the biggest cause of hospital admission for serious eye injury in the UK and it’s not just the obvious sports that pose a risk.

However, it’s racket sports that pose a particular danger and account for thousands of eye injuries a year. The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) estimates that squash balls alone are responsible for 2,000 hospital admissions in the UK each year, while squash rackets account for around 2,400.

In fact, one in three squash players is likely to suffer some form of eye injury during their playing career as the size of the ball and the velocity at which the game is played make the eyes particularly vulnerable

Certain sports are best performed with the protection of special frames or goggles. Squash, for instance, requires goggles which protect the temples and bridge of the nose as well as the eyes.

Polycarbonate, tougher than other materials, must be used for squash."
