Study: Basketball leading cause of sports-related ocular trauma in men

November 3, 2016

A study found that approximately 30,000 people present to the emergency department each year after experiencing eye injuries related to sports, but appropriate protective eyewear could potentially reduce the number of sports-related ocular trauma incidents.

Researchers examined data from the Nationwide Emergency Department Sample in a retrospective, cross-sectional study to determine factors associated with sports-related ocular trauma. Over 4 years, 120,847 patients presented to emergency departments with sports-related ocular trauma. Of those patients, 85,961 had a primary diagnosis of ocular trauma.
