Having vision problems can put you at a disadvantage when you’re playing sports. Fortunately, Opti-Care offers high-quality contact lenses as a solution to this problem. Wearing contact lenses can enhance your performance in many ways. Here’s how:
Wider Visual Access
A common problem with eyeglasses is that some have end pieces that may block your periphery. This can create a blind spot that your opponents may use against you. Contact lenses, however, are directly applied to your eyes, giving you a wider field of vision. This way, you’ll have an easier time communicating with your teammates and guarding your competitor.
Your optometrist shares that contact lenses feel more natural since they are securely placed on your eyes. You also won’t have to worry about them slipping off your face, which is a concern with eyeglasses. They won’t move around either, giving you stable vision.
Fewer Episodes of Distorted Images
Many types of sports involve focusing on a target. Archery, for example, requires utmost concentration so you can hit the bullseye. Contact lenses provide not only sharper vision, but also fewer episodes of distorted images. They are also less likely to get splattered or fog up, letting you enjoy clear eyesight no matter the weather.
Reduced Risk of Eye Injuries
Contact lenses carry a lower risk of eye injuries. They won’t break or shatter even if you collide with another player while playing sports. They can be easily worn with other headgear or safety equipment as well. During your eye exam, we can help you find the most appropriate protective eyewear to use based on the sport or activity you’ll be participating in.
