This specification covers eye protectors, designed for use by players of basketball, baseball, and soccer to minimize or significantly reduce injury to the eye and adnexa due to impact and penetration by baseballs and softballs, basketballs, soccer balls, hands, elbows, and fingers. Protective eyewear offers protection only to the eyes and adnexa and does not protect other parts of the head.
Protectors are divided into three types depending on their design characteristics.
This specification applies to eye protectors for use by wearers of corrective lenses and also by those players who do not require prescription eyewear. (Warning-Polycarbonate or Trivex spectacle lenses should be used if spectacles are worn under protective eyewear.)
In this standard, the use of the words "shall" or "must" indicates a mandatory requirement. The word "should" indicates a recommendation.
Failure of the product occurs when the protector is unable to meet the general, mechanical, and optical (if applicable) requirements of the standard.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
