AB  - OBJECTIVES: To evaluate and review the literature regarding sports-related eye
      injuries and prevention through appropriate protective eyewear. METHODS: The
      literature was reviewed regarding sports-related eye injuries and prevention of
      these injuries. RESULTS: The review of the literature suggests that ocular sports
      injuries can occur with all sports and affects all ages. These injuries may
      affect professional athletes and amateur athletes around the world. There are
      between 40,000 and 600,000 documented sports-related ocular injuries in the
      United States every year. More than 90% of these ocular injuries from sports are 
      preventable. CONCLUSIONS: Most of sports-related eye injuries are preventable.
      Increased recognition of the risks of eye injury playing sports may lead to
      improved protection and a decreased morbidity from eye injuries. To help prevent 
      sports-related eye injuries, education of athletes, parents, coaches, trainers,
      referees, and health care practitioners is critical.
