Position Statement on the Use of Nonpowder Projectile Weapons, Including Airsoft, BB, Nerf, Paintball, and Pellet Guns
(July 2019 )
use of nonpowder projectile weapons, including airsoft, ball bearing (BB), Nerf, paintball, and
pellet guns, is associated with a
risk of eye injury that could result in vision loss, blindness, or loss of the
eye. Given the growing number of recreational activities—for both children and
adults—involving nonpowder projectile weapons, the COS has developed the
following position statement and recommendations to encourage the safe use of
these weapons and minimize the risk of eye injuries.
