ask: Need face mask for broken nose

My daughter broke her nose twice and needs a face mask for college basketball. I've looked online and most of what I find is the generic ones with the padding across the forehead and beside the nose. She doesn't like this kind because she says she can't see well enough. Where is the best place to get the custom made kind?

Hi Anon

You need to do a google search or call a sports store for help. If a sports shop doesn't have what you need, it's likely they can refer you to one who has.  We cannot offer a location service for you, I'm sorry.

Good luck!

I need this too. ASAP! Zipcode is 97756. I have calls in to various locations already, including her doctor, who has to send out to Michigan for this. She has a game tomorrow! Help! Kim

Can you tell us where you live (if in the United States, just your zipcode would be helpful), and we can help you find a location?

Have you asked your daughter's doctor's office this same question as well?

Hi Anon

As Diane said, there are usually places nearby that provide these - contacting your son's pediatrician is a good idea or contact a local professional sports shop and they can point you in the right direction.

Let us know if you still cannot find a place but the people above should have the information you need. You may also want to talk to your son's coach as he'd also know a good place for this kind of mask.

Thanks for writing!

Mcunard,

Many sports rehabilitation centers make the kind of mask I think you're asking about -- they are made from a mold taken of your daughter's face and are clear plastic? Is this what you're interested in?

Where do you live? I would be glad to see if I could find resources in your area.

I need to find the same kind of mask for my son. Where can I get one made at in the 30906 area.

Thanks but I finally found one close to my daughter's college.
