Black Eye Prevention
Avoid a black eye with basic injury prevention.
- Check your home for items that might cause a fall, such as throw rugs or objects on the floor. This will decrease injuries for both the elderly and children.
- Wear appropriate protective gear for any athletic or work-related activity to help protect against not only black eyes but also other serious injuries.
- Wear goggles or other eye protection when working, doing yard work, or other hobbies and sports to help prevent all types of eye injuries.
- Wear seat belts while driving and wear helmets when riding a motorcycle or bicycle.
