eye injuries

sport is the commonest context for injury to the eyes, most commonly those such as football, rugby, boxing where opponents' fingers or elbows may come into contact with the eyes or those where small balls or the implements for hitting them may do the damage (squash, hockey, golf). Wearing protective glasses can reduce the incidence of injury.
