Where to Buy 'plastic Mask' to Protect My Broken Nose During Basketball Game?

Nose guards, plastic face-shields designed to protect the nose during sports activities, are available at many retail locations, including sporting goods shops and big-box stores, such as Walmart. A basic model made by Mueller can be found in Walmart's health care section.

Customized nose shields are available at some online retailers, such as IndianaBrace. Built using specific measurements, these custom shields provide a wider visual field and a better fit than models that require straps to adjust the fit. Some sports-rehabilitation centers that specialize in orthotics create custom-fitting masks that are designed for specific types of nose or orbital socket fractures.
