For all age groups, sports-related eye injuries occur most frequently in water sports, basketball, and baseball/softball.

According to Prevent Blindness* more than 25,000 people seek treatment for sports-related eye injuries each year. The good news is that almost all of these injuries can be prevented. Whatever your sport, whatever your age, you need to protect your eyes!

We believe it’s important for you to know that your regular glasses won’t provide you with enough protection during sports activities. Specific sports glasses are designed to protect your eyes from the sun and injuries incurred when you are participating in sports.

If you participate regularly in running, cycling, hiking, swimming, or some other type of sport then you will benefit from sports glasses. Improving your vision while participating in sports will enhance your enjoyment and increase eye comfort. For some activities there are specific lenses (for example golf), but most often its the type and style of frame and the tint given to the lens which are customized to your individual needs.

We carry the Liberty Sport and Oakley lines of sports glasses, considered by many to be the best in the world, Oakley offer a wide range of designs suitable for almost every sport.  Liberty Sport offer some great value for money products and focus on eye injury prevention. According to Prevent Blindness 90% of all sport related injuries can be prevented.

 

We are excited about adding Peakvision glasses to our line-up as they have a unique patented tint and are very popular with golfers, cyclists, and pilots.
