No matter who you are, if you have vision problems, it is important that you find some way to deal with them. This is just as true for athletes as it is for anyone else. Unfortunately, athletes have their own issue: keeping their glasses safe while they play. Thankfully, there is a solution to that: sports frames. You can get these kinds of eyeglasses from an optician at A. B. See Optical in Los Angeles, CA.
Why Should I Consider Getting Sports Frames?
For obvious reasons, you cannot reasonably wear regular eyeglasses while you play sports, particularly contact sports. If you do, the likelihood that your glasses wind up in pieces increases dramatically. Worse, eyeglasses are not designed to be worn in high-impact, high-speed situations, so even if your eyeglasses don't break, the likelihood that you end up with your glasses off your face is still high.
All too often, people simply opt to not wear their eyeglasses during sports, which only makes it that much more difficult for them to properly enjoy their sport of choice. Thankfully, one does not have to choose between wearing their eyeglasses or putting them at risk.
What Are Sports Frames?
Sports frames are a pretty simple concept. Basically, sports frames work like goggles; instead of getting tucked behind your ears, the frames go around your head. They are a little more expensive than basic frames but are worth the extra expense. Compared to broken glasses during sports, that extra cost will save itself rather quickly. And if you can also compare the cost to simply not wearing glasses while you play sports: Not wearing glasses can contribute to eye strain, which can create both long-term and short-term issues.
You can work with your optician on adjusting the sports frames for you or your child's comfort, even if they intend to wear a helmet during sports. If so, be sure to bring the helmet in so the optician knows how the frames will fit in these circumstances.
Should I Get Sports Frames if I Don't Have Vision Issues?
Undoubtedly, sports frames are great for people with vision issues, but that's not the extent of their value. Sports frames do a world of good to protect the eyes of their wearer from injury, be it a stray elbow or a stray ball. It does not take much when playing sports to cause your eyes to become damaged, after all.
