Sports & Leisure Eyewear: Eyeglasses for those special moments in life

How eyeglass lenses can enhance your hobby and sport

Our hobbies or favorite sports provide us with some of the most enjoyable moments in our lives. Good, comfortable vision can help us get the most out of these special moments. Eyeglass lenses and frames for sports and leisure activities can be precisely tailored to the needs of each individual wearer. Only one thing counts: optimum vision for maximum enjoyment.

Here are a few tips for choosing the optimum eyewear for your sporting and leisure activities

80% of the impressions we receive of our environment are obtained through our eyes, making them our most important sense organ. In sports, good vision is an absolute must. Poor vision not only means that you risk missing the ball or misjudging the finish line. It can also lead to a feeling of insecurity and even to sporting accidents. Sports eyewear must perform even better than everyday glasses and resistance to breakage and glare protection are often essential requirements.

Of course, driving in a convertible on a sunny day also places totally different demands on your glasses than your workplace or everyday life. Your eyecare professional can help you configure the best glasses for your leisure time. He or she can match your glasses to your personal budget and vision needs.

BETTER VISION provides you with some tips and examples on how to ensure that you choose the optimum sports and leisure eyewear for your personal requirements. Do you have any questions about eyeglass lenses for sporting activities or your favorite hobby?  Please send them to us along with any ideas you may have for future topics here at BETTER VISION.
