We all like to look great in our sunglasses but our sun and recreational eyewear serve purposes other than looking good and blocking out the sun’s harmful rays. Day to day sunglasses can be prescription or non-prescription and worn for driving, walking, driving, or other outdoor activities, but when you wear sunglasses to participate in sports activities, there is definitely specific eyewear intended for certain sports. Many designers have also combined their fashionable good looks with a functional, sports-minded lens and at our Niagara Falls optical store, our educated staff can help you find exactly what you need to be worn while playing your sport of choice. Our sports eyewear line at Eyewear Studio includes Rec Specs protective sports eyewear, Carrera, and Oakley. If you don’t see your favorite designer or brand displayed in our optical gallery, please let us know and we will do our best to get them for you and fit them with the lenses you need.
At our Niagara Falls optical store, our opticians recommend eye protection whenever the sun comes out to protect the eyes from ultraviolet radiation (UV), which can cause several serious eye problems. Sunglasses are a form of protective eyewear designed mainly to prevent bright sunlight from damaging or causing any discomfort to your eyes. They can also function as a visual aid since your prescription lenses can be colored, polarized or darkened. Our quality sports eyewear come with UV coatings that won’t rub off after several cleanings and some other options available are polarization, bi-gradient mirror, water repellant, and anti-reflective coatings which are excellent when playing sports.
Sports are a major pastime worldwide and while we go to great lengths to protect against broken bones, cuts and bruises, we often forget to protect ourselves against scratched corneas, fractured eye sockets or permanent vision loss. There are many types of sports eyewear at our Niagara Falls optical store designed to not only protect your eyes and your vision, but to enhance your athletic performance. Wearing eyewear that’s designed specifically for sports has definite performance and protective benefits. Good eye health should always be a considered before choosing any eyewear.
