There's always going to be a balance needed between this and marketing the players.
As much as I want to say it's the players freedom, the teams are investing millions of dollars into the players to actually PLAY. If they make anything mandatory, make visors and mouthguards mandatory (not sure if mouthguards are mandatory but they should be worn at that level).
Another option is leave the option of a mandatory visor to the team. Each team can choose if visors or mandatory, that way it's their decision if they want to take the risk.
