According to Prevent Blindness of America, more than 40,000 athletes every year suffer an eye injury while playing sports. And, every 13 minutes, an emergency room in the U.S. treats a sports-related eye injury.
Many premium eyewear brands offer specialized sunglasses and goggles that are specifically designed to prevent sports injuries. Some even partner with professional sportsmen and athletes to study the types of eyewear they need for their particular sports, including tennis, golf, fishing, cycling, running, and water, snow and motor sports.
- Costa Del Mar: If you spend lots of time on or near the water, you will appreciate the Costa Del Mar brand of eyeglasses, but their patented technology, specially tinted and polarized lenses, and frames that refuse to slip, rust or weigh you down, are also ideal for golfing, water skiing, driving and more.
- Liberty Sport: Liberty Sport has set the standard for protective eyewear since 1929. Their high-impact nylon protective eyewear is designed to accommodate prescription polycarbonate lenses for use in baseball, softball, basketball, cycling, golf, handball, lacrosse, soccer, paddleball, racquetball, and tennis, as well as water sports like swimming and scuba diving and winter sports like skiing and snowboarding. They are also popular with motorcycle enthusiasts because some collections are certified to meet high mass and high velocity standards and offer the ultimate in UV protection.
- Nike: Nike is the largest athletic shoe and apparel company on the planet, and their eyewear is designed with the athlete in mind. High-tech lenses reduce fogging, which makes them well-suited to baseball, golf, tennis, and cycling. Their diverse collection is available in a wide range of materials, from metal to acetate to titanium to hypoallergenic.
