Cuts and bruises will heal but eyes injuries sustained while playing football can last a lifetime. Protect your eyes from gridiron injuries by investing in a pair of premium football goggles.

Baseball might be America's favorite pastime but football consistently ranks as the country's most popular sport, according to an annual survey conducted by the market research firm Harris Interactive. However, the sheer physicality of football also places it at the top of the list for sports-related injuries.

From hard-core tackles to flying elbows and fingers from the opposing team, there's an inherit risk of injury in the game. Football players of all ages can protect themselves from eye injuries by wearing a pair of protective goggles. It's an otherwise simple accessory that can make a world of difference in making the game safer and more enjoyable for everyone involved.

One of the lesser-known benefits of football goggles is the additional protection it offers against facemask grabbing. Any player attempting to grab the facemask of another player will likely bump his or her fingers on the goggles. This is just one more reason why every football player should wear goggles.
