April marks Sports Eye Safety Month—a time to raise awareness about the importance of protecting our eyes during sports and recreational activities. At Zenni, we prioritize eye safety, which is why we offer a range of protective eyewear designed to meet ASTM standards and keep your eyes safe while you play.

What are ASTM Standards?

ASTM International is an organization that develops and publishes voluntary consensus technical standards for various materials, products, systems, and services. ASTM F803 refers specifically to protective eyewear standards for sports. This standard is the strictest when it comes to ensuring the safety of protective eyewear, requiring glasses to pass high-velocity impact resistance tests, as well as tests for clarity and strength of lenses.

Why is Eye Protection Important During Sports?

Sports and recreational activities are responsible for thousands of eye injuries each year. However, approximately 90% of these injuries could be prevented by wearing appropriate eye protection, such as eyewear that meets ASTM F803 standards. Protecting your eyes during sports not only prevents injuries but also allows you to enjoy your activities with confidence and peace of mind.
