Sports Eye Safety
Our Family Eye Care Team Wants Your Family of Athletes To Have an Eye-Healthy Sports Season
Staying active and learning and playing new sports are important components of a healthy and well-balanced life. At Dr. Cooper, Pediatric Ophthalmology & Family Eye Care, our Burlingame eye care team strongly encourages you and your family to get out and play, but we also want you to be aware of how important sports eye safety is.
5 Things to Know about Sports Eye Safety
The eyeball is not a single, spherical structure as is commonly thought. It consists of a smaller, curved portion called the cornea that attaches to a larger, roughly spherical structure called the sclera (the white of the eye). The eyeball is filled with a jelly-like substance called the vitreous fluid.
How Our Eye Doctors in Burlingame Can Help You Protect Your Eyes During Sports
While everyone should see an eye doctor on a routine basis, our ophthalmologists, optometrists, and opticians encourage you and your other athletes in your family to meet with us for comprehensive sports-related eye injury prevention. Our services can also help you protect your eyes, see better and be more successful in your sport of choice!
If an eye injury does occur, be sure to follow up with us after any emergency room visit.
