Play Hard. Don’t Blink. Program Grant Renewed!


We are pleased to report that the Play Hard. Don’t Blink Program (PHDB) has been funded for another year by the Ohio Department of Health’s Save Our Sight Fund! For the past 22 years, the PHDB program has provided sports, recreational, vocational and other eye safety equipment to young Ohioans across the state.

Each year, OOS provides thousands of pieces of equipment including baseball and softball helmets, fielder face shields, prescription goggles, and vocational school face protection as well as educational modules to partners such as the 4-H and girl scouts.

The Save Our Sight fund is supported by Ohioans' voluntary donations during their vehicle registration process each year. OOS looks forward to continuing to protect the vision of young Ohioans at school, on the court, and at their playing fields—as well as during volunteer activities.
