What Are the Most Common Eye Injuries During Baseball Season?

Not only is Baseball America’s pastime, but it is a large cause of eye injury during the summer season. Over 90% of eye related injuries can be prevented; many times with simple safety measures. If you are active in sports, especially in Baseball, your vision is needed often to measure your swing or even pitch the ball. The longer players play baseball, the more chance of damage to the eye. It is very important to keep your vision in excellent shape when it comes to playing sports.

Most victims of eye related conditions are between 15-25 years of age, often in an athlete’s prime years. As a player, it is important to have yourself checked annually for eye damage or progressive eye conditions. As a coach, it is equally important to ensure your players are getting their checkups. Near and far vision is required to properly play the game. Below are some of the most common sports related eye injuries:

  • Detached Retina’s
  • Corneal Lacerations
  • Hemorrhages
  • Loss of eye

Most of these injuries are due to direct ocular contact with the ball. While baseball is the sport we love, we must protect ourselves at all times. Several athletes have neglected their vision and have waited to get their checkups until their vision was so bad that they could barely make it through the day. St. Louis Cardinals’ Aaron Luna recently had vision correction surgery to improve his vision. The Visian ICL, which is a tiny implantable contact lens, is placed in the eye to improve your natural lens vision. With the Visian ICL, you can experience life without contact lenses or glasses in most cases.

Aaron remembers what it was like before the Visian ICL and now is grateful he had the procedure done. The Visian ICL takes only about 20 minutes per eye and the recovery time is generally around a week. You should ask your eye care professional about the Visian ICL – it could benefit you in your next Baseball season!

The Visian ICL has been gaining popularity for individuals with Keratoconus. Keratoconus can lead to high levels of myopia (nearsightedness). The Visian ICL as a Keratoconus treatment can help reduce the high levels of myopia, so patients with Keratoconus might be able to wear glasses or less powerful contacts. In some cases, Keratoconus patients might be able to reduce their need for contacts or glasses after Visian ICL.

Making sure that we have the best treatments, and are comfortable in our daily activities is a continuous job. But a worth while one. There are several treatments developed for those who have Keratoconus. Some include surgery, glass or contact lenses and other procedures.

But for those who don’t like surgery, or have other reasons for avoiding it contact lenses should definitely be an option. Whether they are RGP or soft lenses the option for improved clarity, comfort, and stability are all benefits of contact lenses.

Below are the Top 3 Benefits of Using Contact Lenses for the Treatment of Keratoconus:

Mobility – Contact lenses allow the patient to continue with their day to day without any time away.

Clarity – The use of RGP contact lenses can increase the clarity of your overall vision. This can give you a better more reliable visual experience.

Little Maintenance – For many with Keratoconus the less hectic and busy your schedule is the more you can enjoy yourself. Contacts provide little maintenance to keep your vision clear.
