Abstract

The incidence of eye injury in sport is rising and is a matter for concern. The mechanics of blunt eye injury and its clinical effects are described. The sports causing particular concern are squash and badminton, where protective spectacles are used too infrequently. The need for, and methods of, injury prevention in sport are discussed.
