Eye Safety

October 10, 2019

Did you know that 90% of all eye injuries could are preventable? At work or play, it’s simple to protect your eyes! At the office of Omni Eye & Vision (Burnaby), we provide guidance and care to help you guard against injury and protect the health of your eyes.

Why speak to your eye doctor about the best options for protective eyewear? The reason is clear. The statistics on sports-related eye injuries are alarming. According to statistics, approximately 40,000 eye injuries each year in the United States are attributable to sports. The fact of the matter is that every 13 minutes, an emergency room is treating someone for sports-related eye trauma. While all this sounds alarming, there’s also good news to report. As awareness of the connection between sports and eye trauma grows, more and more athletes and sports enthusiasts of all ages are using protective sports eyewear.

When getting eyewear to use on the playing field or during recreational activities, it’s important to get an eye exam. If a refractive error is detected at this time, we will determine if a correction built in to your new protective eyewear is also required. With eyewear that incorporates a vision correction, we can do more than protect your eyes from injury. By making sure you are comfortably enjoying the benefits of clear, crisp, and glare-free vision, we can help you boost your on-field performance and enjoyment of the game. We’ll also provide ample guidance on the most appropriate eyewear for a particular activity and advise you of any existing eye problems or vision impairments that might increase your risk for serious injury, limit your participation in particular sports, or require extra precautions. Remember, for growing children; protective sports eyewear should be periodically adjusted or replaced to remain effective and account for changes as they develop.

At the office of Omni Eye & Vision (Burnaby), we’re dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled and compassionate care. For more information on our office and the many services that we provide, give us a call today.
