Not only are we fans of baseball, but we’re big supporters of our very own HOKIES. Did you know that Blacksburg Eye is the preferred eye care of Virginia Tech Athletics?
It’s true! It’s our privilege to support one of our local teams and take part in the growth of professional baseball athletes.
We strive to keep all athletes performing their very best, whether it’s tee-ball, swimming, or D-1 baseball - we help protect them with the appropriate eyewear and keep their eyes healthy with yearly exams. For many, we are able to improve their athletic performance with concussion visual rehab and sports vision training.
Over this past weekend, Blacksburg Eye sponsored a home baseball series with Georgia Tech at English Field. Our team handed out over 200 pairs of sunglasses to Hokies fans and enjoyed seeing the games and meeting the fans!
We had a great time cheering at the games and knowing that we spread awareness about eye health & annual eye exams to the fans.
Some quick tips to protect your eyes during baseball season:
- Keep hydrated
- Use sunscreen
- Wear polarized sunglasses
- Look for shade and wear a hat
- Make sure your prescription is up to date for calling those close plays at home plate
Let us know if you’re a baseball fan, too! GO HOKIES!
