What are Sports Goggles?

Sports goggles, sometimes known as sport goggles, are rugged prescription lenses that are designed for active use. They protect your eyes from injury, which is something that contacts don't do. For this reason, authorities recommend that all people wear protective eyewear while engaging in sporting activities, whether they are also wearing contacts or not. Non-prescription sports goggles can be purchased for people who always wear contact lenses but need to protect their eyes.

Specifically, sports goggles are made from materials that resist breaking and provide protection for the eyes. They are often contoured to the shape of the face, feature rubber padding, and use flexible but rugged materials. Polycarbonate lenses, which are extremely impact-resistant, are the standard choice.

Why Wear Sport Goggles in Wilmette, IL?

Many activities that people do not think about posing a risk can actually cause serious eye injuries. Many of these are preventable by wearing proper sport goggles. However, there are other reasons to choose sports goggles, as well:

  • Don't have to risk breaking your prescription glasses
  • More comfortable during activities than glasses
  • Stay on your face better
  • Work well for people who can't wear contacts
  • Provide clear vision for improved performance

Who Should Own Sports Goggles?

Anyone who enjoys being active can benefit from owning a pair of sports goggles. Serious athletes and weekend warriors alike will enjoy the benefits of using sports goggles while playing. If you are currently playing in your regular eyeglasses, you will be able to stop worrying about them falling off or breaking, and stop having to push them back into place all of the time. If you are currently playing in contact lenses, you will be able to avoid issues associated with contacts, and also provide physical protection for your eyes.
