Over 700 people injure their eyes every day at work, home, and recreationally. As eye care professionals, we struggle with this reality because we know that 9 in 10 of them are entirely preventable by an inexpensive pair of safety glasses.
We implore you to protect your eyes whenever the potential for injury exists. Whether it’s at home, work, or for sport, eye protection should always be part of your uniform.
We regularly work with highly-competitive athletes that have come to appreciate not only the protection that performance eyewear can provide, but also the advantages it offers them on the field, in the arena, or out on the course.
There’s no denying that most sports have a need for eye protection. Whether your sport is hockey, baseball, golf, tennis, cycling, running, or otherwise, the benefits offered by a pair of performance glasses are numerous and, once you’ve experienced them, obvious.
In the past, people that required corrective lenses needed to wear safety glasses over top of their regular glasses (or when wearing contact lenses). Today, this is no longer the case: many different types and styles of safety glasses exist, and many of them can be made with your corrective lens prescription.
Performance eyewear is designed to retain a snug, comfortable fit during all levels of competition. This means that you don’t need to worry about your glasses falling off. These glasses also come with specialised prescription lenses and offer tremendous performance benefits for athletes that require corrective lenses.
Designed to keep up with your pace, you can expect performance eyewear to be durable and tough. Typically made of strong materials (such as titanium), these glasses are meant to be worn in high-paced, competitive situations.
We have lenses that improve colour contrast, reduce glare, enhance colour fidelity, reduce the saturation of certain colours, and more. You’ll be amazed at just how much a pair of performance lenses can improve your ability to make quick visual judgements.
