Sport & Sunwear

Sport and sunwear are a must-have for anyone wanting peak performance. Some of the special features offered at our office include light-reflective mirrors, UV protection, and anti-glare lenses.

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

Some of the most common injuries in sports are corneal abrasions, fractured bones, and retinal detachments. Protective eyewear can you increase your chances of protection while optimizing your vision.

Polycarbonate lenses are more resistant to impact than glass or plastic and offer protection for 90% of eye injuries.

These lenses feature a padded bridge, has prescription or non-prescription lenses, and has deep-grooved eye wires to prevent the lens from falling out. Depending on your sport, certain lenses are more appropriate than others.

Dark, UV protection lenses are great for baseball and other outdoor sports. Golfers can benefit from gray-brown colored lenses which make it easier to outline the course. Even if you do not normally wear glasses, non-prescription sports lenses can benefit your performance.

Some people think that lenses prevent the wearer from seeing the action, but many sports lenses have anti-fog, glare reduction, and scratch-resistant properties. Some are also designed to maximize peripheral vision.


To reduce exposure to UV rays and their effects, we recommend you invest in a set of sunglasses which can provide at least 98% protection from UVA and UVB rays.

While cheaper sunglasses can range from poor to excellent UV protection, our sunwear lines provide top quality protection from the sun. We carry a large selection of styles and colors.

Another product to consider is a pair of polarized sunglasses. Polarized lenses block light reflected from surfaces such as a flat road or smooth water. If you are involved in activities such as water sports, skiing, golfing, biking, fishing, and even driving, polarized lenses can be very helpful in reducing glare and giving a clearer view.

Finally, if you have a youngster in the family, it is never too early to fit them with sunglasses. Children under the age of 20 are the most susceptible to the damaging effects of UV light. One concern of parents is that their child will scratch, break, or lose the sunglasses; we are here to help you make the best choice for your child.
