April is Sports Eye Safety Month

Every month should be sports eye safety month, however the American Academy of Ophthalmology has chosen April 2011 to make people aware of it's importance.  Most people are aware of the importance of proper eye protection in sports such as hockey or racquetball and wear face masks or appropriate safety goggles.  Unfortunately, many people are injured each year in a ariety of other "less dangerous" sports which also require proper eye protections.  D'Ambrosio Eye Care wants to remind patients about the importance of wearing protective eyewear when participating in team sports.

Stop by any of our three optical departments and discuss your individual sporting activities with our licensed opticians to ensure the optimum protection.
