Vision is vital to how well we perform in sports activities. From keen amateurs playing for the love of the game, all the way to professional sports stars wanting to push the known boundaries of ability and endurance. We know that vision plays a huge role in giving us that competitive edge and being the best we can be.
It is estimated that 95% of the information we use during sport comes from our vision, so it is essential to check our eye health and vision with regular eye examinations.
We also know that sport is the most common cause of serious eye injury so it is vital that we protect our eyes from harm.
We can advise you on the various sports vision options available to protect your eyes, correct your vision and improve your game. Our sports frames are professionally dispensed and feature safety features to ensure that the perils of a football or tennis ball in the face from close range won’t cause you any unnecessary harm.
These range from prescription sports goggles for various sports including football, rugby, tennis, squash and swimming. Skiers and snowboarders can benefit by using a glazed prescription insert that fits into new or your own contrast enhancing ski goggles. Golfers can lower their handicaps by using specific enhancing tints to help read the greens better, whilst cyclists have the option of aerodynamic frames with various interchangeable impact resistant filters.
If you need any help or advice with your sport vision and safety considerations please come in and speak to one of our Dispensing Opticians.
