A Safe Summer: Sportglasses

When thinking about sports gear, eye protection may not be your first priority, but perhaps it should be. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 42,000 sports-related eye injuries bring Americans to the emergency room each year. Most of these eye injuries could have been prevented, had players used eye safety gear. Eyesight is an important factor in sports, where hand eye coordination has to be at its peak. However, players should never wear ordinary prescription eyeglasses during sports, as these could shatter. Instead, players not wearing other eye safety gear should opt for sports sunglasses.

Your Sport glasses Options:

  • Polarized sports glasses. These sunglasses reduce glare and are safety rated to prevent injury.
  • Antireflective (AR) coated sunglasses. The coating reduces glare even at night.
  • Photochromic lenses. These glasses are clear indoors and automatically change to a darker shade outdoors, protecting your eyes from bright light. Much of the time these sunglasses are available in polycarbonate, a light but durable material often used in sports eyewear. They may also be called “transition lenses” due to top manufacturer Transitions Optical Inc.

Sports sunglasses are best for sports which don’t require face shields or goggles. These sunglasses are ideal for golf, track and field, and tennis.
