Sports Vision

If you are looking to improve your sporting performance as a professional athlete or enthusiastic amateur, we can help you get the most out of your eyes and your game.
In recent years, eyewear has become an established part of the team kit in many sports. Sports eyewear has also developed as a sports fashion item and styles, colours, base curves and eye shapes have become more pronounced and adventurous.

Vision in sports is crucial both for the purposes of performance and safety. This year’s Tour de France provided a chilling reminder of the dangers many sports people, elite and recreational, face and highlights the need for good vision and eye protection to maximise performance when participating in sport.

So whether you are a road racing cyclist, mountain biker, cricketer, golfer, mountain biker, runner or take part in any other sport, you should not underestimate the importance of all round vision and eye protection. Ensure clear vision, even in the most difficult conditions such as the rapid interplay between light and shadow, strong UV radiation, dust, insects or stones from the road. This enhances concentration and performance.
