Do sportsmen really need sports glasses? 



( 25, 2020)--Today, almost everyone who picks up a ball, bat, racket or club can see sports glasses, whether they play in the major leagues or the Little League. Fortunately, coaches, parents, and players now realize that there are many ways to pay for sports glasses. The risk of eye damage is reduced or eliminated, and the performance of players is improved by the fact that they are beautiful. Today, many clubs do not allow their members to participate without wearing the appropriate glasses.

Initially, there was some resistance from children to "look funny" when wearing protective glasses. Today, sports glasses are an integral part of everyday life, and by far the way bicycle helmets have become the norm. Children and adults also love the image given by the use of protective glasses: it shows that they mean business on the playground.

If you are not wearing safety glasses, consider this.

Hospital emergencies are said to treat 40,000 sport-related eye injuries each year. Sports like racquetball, tennis, and badminton may seem relatively harmless, but they involve objects moving at 60 miles per hour or faster. During a typical game, a racquetball can cover between 60 and 200 miles per hour. Another potential danger is that the rackets themselves move at high speed in a confined space and often come into contact with each other.

Flying objects are not the only danger. Many eyes injuries result from bumps and bumps on the fingers and elbows, especially in games where players are in close contact with each other. Basketball, for example, has an extremely high rate of eye injuries.

These are good reasons to wear protective glasses. Another aspect concerns performance. It was common for people with mild to moderate prescriptions to play sports without wearing their glasses or lenses. A clear vision is essential for performing well in almost all sports, and participating in sports when vision is less than 20/20 is counterproductive.

Features to look for in your sports glasses

Eyeglasses, sunglasses, and even industrial safety glasses at work do not provide adequate protection for sports use. Sports glasses are usually made in a variety of shapes and sizes and available in both markets and online. Some are even designed to fit helmets used for soccer, hockey, and baseball. Sports glasses should allow the use of helmets when sport requires it.

The lenses of sports glasses are generally made of polycarbonate. Since polycarbonate is an impact-resistant lens material, it works well to protect the eyes from fast-moving objects. Polycarbonate lenses have built-in ultraviolet (UV) protection and are coated to resist scratches, which are valuable properties for outdoor sports.
