Sports Eye Injury Treatment

Sports Injury

Sports injury is very common and almost expected as part of the daily occurrences or mishaps to an athlete. Whenever the player sustains an injury to the eye or areas near the eye, it is usually very severe in nature. Most contact sports may cause eye injuries that are in the form of a corneal abrasion from a finger poked to the eye. There can also be a potential for a detached retina from a sharp blow to the head area by a shoulder, elbow, or ball traveling at high velocity. Here the trauma to the eye is not only painful, but can also be very sight-threatening.
