You Can Prevent Eye Injury
More than one million people suffer eye injuries each year in the United States and emergency room studies show that appropriate protective eyewear could have prevented ninety percent of these injuries. So, be choosy and select the right glasses for the right activity... ie. sunglasses, goggles, or face shield (for more guidelines refer to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z87.1 safety standard).
In the workshop
Think about the work you will be doing and wear protective eyewear to shield your eyes from flying fragments, fumes, dust particles, sparks and splashing chemicals. Many objects can fly into your eyes unexpectedly and cause injury.
In the garden
Put on protective eyewear before you use a lawnmower, power trimmer or edger and be sure to check for rocks and stones because they can become dangerous projectiles as they shoot from these machines.
In the house
When using household chemicals, read instructions and labels carefully, work in a well-ventilated area and make sure to point spray nozzles away from you. Many chemicals can contain fumes or particles that can irritate and or infect the eyes, some are extremely hazardous and can permanently destroy the surface of your eyes, resulting in blindness.

Around the car
Battery acid, sparks and debris from damaged or improperly jump-started auto batteries can severely damage your eyes. Keep protective goggles in the trunk of your car to use for those emergencies and everyday repairs.
During sports and recreation
Boxing and full-contact martial arts pose an extremely high risk of serious and even blinding eye injuries. There is no satisfactory eye protection for boxing, although thumbless gloves may reduce the number of boxing eye injuries.
Contact lenses offer NO PROTECTION, and contact lens wearers require additional protection when participating in sports.

In the workplace
Wear appropriate safety eyewear for your job. Many of the thousands injured each day didn't think they needed eye protection or were wearing eyewear inappropriate for the job.
