Basketball consistently ranks near the top of the list for sports-related eye injuries. Whether it's a flying elbow, fingers, or an unpredictable rebound ball, there are numerous eye hazards to players. Players can protect themselves from eye injuries by wearing a pair of basketball goggles.
To put the problem of eye injuries into perspective, a report published by the National Eye Health Education Program (NEHEP) says the odds for a college basketball player to sustain an eye injury is 1 in 10. On the other hand, statistics show that only 1 in 18 college athletes (all sports combined) will sustain an eye injury.
In addition to protecting the eyes, some basketball goggles also come with built-in nose guards for an even higher level of protection.
It's a little known fact that basketball was originally played with brown soccer balls. It wasn't until the late 1950s when a man named Tony Hinkle set on a quest to find a more effective ball for the game. He introduced an orange ball, which later became the sport's standard. Surprisingly, Hinkle's new concept ball resulted in fewer injuries.
