Optimal Performance in Sports
Unlike glasses, which may limit your field of view, contact lenses move with your eyes, providing a full clear view and unobstructed peripheral vision. This advantage is particularly beneficial in fast-paced sports, where awareness of your surroundings is crucial.
No worries about fogging or slippage – sometimes glasses can be frustrating when they get foggy during intense activity or they may slip from sweat build up at a critical moment. Contact lenses eliminate these problems, allowing you to stay focused and in the game.
Contact lenses can reduce the risk of injury compared to glasses, especially in contact sports, as they won't shatter or break.
Which lenses are right for you?
It depends on the type of sport you play.
Daily wear contact lenses may be the best option if you play sports in dirty or muddy conditions (like football). For longer-term or endurance activities – like mountain climbing or hiking – extended wear lenses are a great choice. Less time handling your lenses, more time enjoying the landscape!
Since every sport is different, and every person’s needs are unique, it’s important you speak to your optometrist to find the perfect contact lenses for you.
