Sports Vision Glasses at Eyezone Optical
Wearing glasses or contacts helps with vision limitations, but people also experience their eyewear blocking them from engaging in physical activities. This is where sports glasses come into play. We help athletes engage in their favorite activities without having to worry about breaking eyeglasses, losing contacts, or not being able to see. Designed with the same prescription power as regular glasses and contacts, our team at Eyezone Optical in Mayfield Heights can provide you with the right pair of sporting glasses for your athletic needs.
Choosing the Right Equipment Has a Process
Sports glasses start with a fitting. An eye doctor needs to be involved both to understand your current eye condition and demands as well as to find the glasses that best meet your needs. Just like glasses and contacts, sports glasses come in different shapes, vision power, and design. The right size is needed as well as the right prescription, so they match correctly.
Which Sports Require Specific Glasses?
Sports eye safety matters a lot, regardless of whether you play a more or less risky sport. Even less-contact sports like badminton can still lead to eye injuries. Some sports like hockey, swimming, football, baseball, fencing, and skiing raise significant concerns. If you play any of these sports, we encourage you to wear special sports glasses.
To be more effective, your eyewear should be made from a strong material that is resistant to breaking, especially under extreme circumstances. For this reason, our optometrist may advise you to wear polycarbonate goggles. These can be worn over other glasses or be customized to match your vision preferences.
Which Eyewear Suits Your Sport?
It is essential to consider the intensity of your sport's activities before seeking optometry services for any sports eyewear. Each game has a special requirement for goggles and glasses. For example, the equipment you may need while playing soccer may differ from that worn while playing hockey. Our team will help you choose the right protective gear for your eyes. We consider the standards of the respective sports associations while recommending any sports eye safety equipment.
