In brief: Eye protection

The biggest is to wear eye protection - many sports players do not want to use them but a variety of sports have eye protection - baseball, softball to name a few.

In brief: Protective eyewear

Protective eyewear should be worn for specific sports that have a higher incidence of ocular injury, like racquet ball, squash, lacrosse, even basketball.
Many sports don't have eye protection regulations, but should. Be smart and wear well fitted shatter proof (polycarbonate) sports glasses anytime there is potential risk for eye injury. This is also true for any other activity too, like lawn mow
