Protective Eyewear May Help Reduce Field Hockey Injuries.

Reuters (11/12, Pittman) reports that protective eyewear appears to prevent injuries to the face and head of high-school field hockey players, according to a study published online Nov. 12 in the journal Pediatrics. Researchers arrived at this conclusion after studying data on the 2009 and 2010 autumn field hockey seasons from 180 high schools, then comparing statistics from six states in which the use of protective eyewear was mandated and the remainder of states in which no such rules exist.
