Sportswear


If you play sports, you need to keep two things in mind related to your vision: protection and precision.

Sports lenses protect the wearer’s eyes. Sports like tennis, baseball, softball, and racquetball may see ball speeds of 90mph or more. In baseball alone, there are over 500,000 injuries per year! But that’s not the most common eye injury. Most eye injuries occur in basketball, where an elbow or a finger jabbed into the eye and can cause corneal abrasions, fractured bones, retinal detachments, or even blindness. Trivex lenses are more resistant to impact than glass or plastic and offer protection from eye injury while providing crystal clear optics. Protective eyewear fits well, features a padded bridge, has prescription or non-prescription lenses, and deep-grooved eyewires to prevent the lens from falling out.
