10.4 Eye Protection

Original Rule Text |

Players must wear opaque eye protection that completely obscures the player’s vision. Darkened alpine skiing glasses or adequate alternatives like goalball masks are the only types which are allowed. The rim of the glasses must be padded with foam or silicone material in order to completely shut out all light.

Interpretations: |

  • The eye protection must “completely shut out all light”. This means that absolutely no light is allowed to be seen when the referee checks the mask – this literally means “complete darkness”. It is the players responsibility to have adequately prepared eye protection in order to be allowed to take part in a competition. (Rev. 01/2014)
