Sports and Specialty Eyewear Fitting
Sports eyewear can give you the performance edge you’re seeking.
While our Vision Center can benefit everyone, it is fantastically relevant to athletes seeking to improve their performance. Skills like depth perceptions, visual clarity and reaction time can all vastly affect athletic performance. Every serious athlete has practiced the physical aspects of these skills but the visual aspects are equally, if not more, important. It can also provide the safety and eye protection you need as well.
Protecting Your & Your Child’s Eyes
Most people take the usual precautions when playing a given sport: helmets, knee pads, etc., but few take measures to protect their eyes. The sad part about eye injuries is that most of the damage is permanent, and most of the injuries could have been prevented by wearing sports goggles.
Did you know:
More than 600,000 eye injuries related to sports and recreation occur each year.
Over 85% of children do not utilize protective eyewear in situations that represent a risk of eye injury.
Every 13 minutes a person with a sports related eye injury visits an emergency room.
More than 90% of all eye injuries can be prevented with the use of appropriate eyewear.
Eye injuries can destroy an athlete’s career or a child’s future. Therefore, if you or your child loves sports, you need to take important precautions. More and more professional athletes are recognizing the hazards, and taking precautions to protect themselves.
It is important to keep in mind that sports goggles are separate and distinct from “fashion” or “dress” eyewear, because, as the law states, everyday “fashion” eyeglasses are not held to the same protective standards as eyewear products labeled for protective sports use.
“Recs Specs” sports and swim goggles are available with prescription and non-prescription lenses.
