    Serious eye injuries to cricket wicketkeepers: a call to consider protective eyewear
  • Author: Mann, David L ; Dain, Stephen J
  • Description: In a recent cricket match, the South African wicketkeeper, Mark Boucher, suffered a lacerated sclera when hit by a ricocheting bail, 1 and the irreparable vision loss, photophobia and risk of further damage forced him to retire immediately from international cricket. 2 Commentators have referred to the incident as a freak accident 3 and that Boucher was unlucky 4 ; however, he is at least the third international wicketkeeper in the last 25 years to have their career cut short by an eye injury. [...]spectacle-type occupational eye protectors (high-impact only) and all sport-specific eyewear would have met the required level to protect Boucher's eye.
