Each year, thousands of individuals suffer eye injuries related to sports activities. These injuries can range from mild surface scratches to severe traumas that can lead to permanent vision loss. However, most of these injuries are preventable with proper eye protection.

The Right Vision Protection for Every Sport

Choosing the right eye protection depends on the type of sport you play. Sports like basketball, soccer, and tennis may require different types of protection compared to more contact-intensive sports such as lacrosse, hockey, or football.

Dr. James Bedsole Eye Care offers personalized consultations to select the best sports eyewear that meets the specific safety standards for your sport while providing maximum comfort and vision clarity.

Features of High-Quality Sports Eyewear

  • Impact Resistance: Lenses made from polycarbonate materials offer the highest level of impact resistance and are essential for most sports eyewear
  • UV Protection: Outdoor sports expose athletes to harmful UV rays. Sports eyewear with UV protection shields the eyes from sun damage
  • Anti-Fog and Scratch-Resistant Coatings: These features ensure clear vision during play, regardless of weather conditions or physical activity levels
  • Proper Fit: Specially designed for sports, these glasses or goggles fit securely and comfortably, minimizing the risk of falling off during activity
