The NHL is now considering removing the dreaded monster contact lenses from its players’ helmets and the players association has launched a website to raise awareness about the issue.
The league said it’s exploring the possibility of changing its current rule requiring players to wear the contact lenses when wearing helmets and that it would consider the options if it determines it is in the interest of the game.
The NHL’s contact lens policy has evolved in recent years to limit the number of contacts players can wear on the ice, but it still requires players to use one contact lens for every contact they make on the game ice.
Players can wear up to five contacts at once and the league allows players to choose whether to wear one contact or three, depending on their situation.
The contact lenses are supposed to be worn by players during their normal play on the rink.
They can also be worn at any time during a game to prevent injuries or to protect the eyes.
The rule change could impact the NHL’s players’ health care needs.
Players are required to have their contact lenses adjusted after an NHL game and can wear a different type of contact lens after a day’s rest.
The League’s concussion committee is expected to meet in the coming weeks to discuss the matter.
The players association said the contact lens change would mean players have to make more decisions to keep their eyes clear, which they may not be comfortable with.
The goal is to give players and their families a better opportunity to get through the day and avoid further complications, the players said in a statement.
The issue of contact lenses has been raised since the 2014-15 season, when the NHL implemented a policy requiring all players to have contact lenses.
The change is expected in the summer.
