ASTM F803-14

Standard Specification for Eye Protectors for Selected Sports

1.1 This specification covers eye protectors, designed for use by players of racket sports, women's lacrosse, field hockey, basketball, baseball, and soccer that minimize or significantly reduce injury to the eye and adnexa due to impact and penetration by racket-sport rackets and balls, women's lacrosse and field hockey sticks and balls, baseballs, soccer balls, hands, elbows, and fingers. Protective eyewear offers protection only to the eyes and does not protect other parts of the head.

1.2 Protectors are divided into three types depending on their design characteristics.

1.3 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.)

1.4 In this standard, the use of the words “shall” or “must” indicates a mandatory requirement. The word “should” indicates a recommendation.

1.5 Failure of the product occurs when the protector is unable to meet the general, mechanical, and optical (if applicable) requirements of the standard.

1.6 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only. Metric units of measurement in this specification are in accordance with the International System of Units (SI). If a value for measurement as given in this specification is followed by an equivalent value in other units, the first stated is to be regarded as the requirement. A given equivalent value may be approximate.
