Eye Protection for Athletes
According to Prevent Blindness of America, more than 40,000 athletes every year suffer an eye injury while playing sports. And, every 13 minutes, an emergency room in the U.S. treats a sports-related eye injury.
These eye injuries include blunt trauma and penetrating injuries, painful corneal abrasions, swollen or detached retinas, fracture of the eye socket, traumatic cataract, and bleeding. The consequences can range from temporary to permanent vision loss and even blindness.
School-aged children, whose skills are still developing, are especially prone to eye injuries; however, the popularity of “extreme sports” and a significant increase in motorcycle sales means that adults are just as vulnerable to serious eye injury. At least 90% of these eye injuries can be prevented with the proper use of protective sports eyewear.
When you or your child wear prescription lenses, make eye safety part of the game plan by purchasing protective sports eyewear with polycarbonate lenses that is 10 times more impact-resistant than glass or plastic.
Why Liberty Sport?
Liberty Sport premium frames and lenses are made for high performance and can withstand the demands of any sport. The company has been setting the standard for protective eyewear since 1929 when it was founded in Newark, NJ.
The company’s high-impact nylon protective eyewear is designed to accommodate prescription polycarbonate lenses for use in sporting activities such as baseball, softball, basketball, cycling, golf, handball, lacrosse, soccer, paddleball, racquetball, and tennis, as well as water sports like swimming and scuba diving and winter sports like skiing and snowboarding.
Liberty Sport eyeglasses have also been embraced by motorcycle enthusiasts. If you love to tear it up on the open road, you should have eyewear that blocks wind and road debris, such as the Liberty Sport Rider Collection, which is ANSI Z87.1 certified to meet high mass and high velocity standards. It offers the ultimate in UV protection as well as removable magnetic side shields that drop into place when you need them.
All Liberty Sport protective eyewear is designed to be virtually indestructible. Innovative frame technologies include an AutoFit nose bridge which automatically forms to your face and increases airflow under your lens to prevent fogging.
They also produce the world’s first Switch Magnetic Interchange Lens System™, which offers a multiple Rx solution in a single frame to support and enhance vision in changing light and atmospheric conditions without sacrificing performance.
After passing the rigorous testing required by NASA, the Liberty Sport Switch technology has become the performance eyewear solution for their astronauts.
