Sport’s eyewear presents a different challenge for spectacle wearer’s altogether, as most patients are concerned as to whether or not their current glasses will be able to keep up with their needs. Regardless of whether you’re having fun, getting some exercise, or competing on a professional scale, your vision should be perfect, and Openshaw opticians Cleckheaton is the ideal place to come for prescription sports glasses for adults and kids
Eyewear specifically tailored for sports use is now becoming increasingly popular. Eyewear should enable you to perform perfectly without your vision being a hindrance of any kind. You certainly
wouldn’t for example, want to play tennis with the sun glaring in your face. For people with or without the need for glasses, most people use sunglasses during brighter days to reduce glare and
enhance their vision. Glare reduction can greatly increase performance and help you see
clearly – so is perfect for all people, with or without prescription needs. Your chosen sport will also impact upon the type of eyewear you choose. Protection from the elements is vital for some sports such as skiing and snow sports, where not only do you need to protect eyes from
glare, but also from the harmful effects of UV light. At Openshaw Opticians, we understand that you want to play in style. And whatever your sport, our friendly staff will help advise you on the most appropriate eyewear for your chosen activity. Not all eyewear is the same though, and sport’s specific eyewear helps you to play on in all kinds of conditions:
Eyewear when playing in the snow needs to take into account glare reduction, sharpness of sight, different light conditions and to also help you determine the various textures of the snow. Our lenses provide you with 100% UV protection as well as being extra tough to resist impact. Our frames are designed to give you the most comfortable fit coupled with reliable, durable designs which help protect against the cold.
Water sports eyewear should be able to protect against salty water, UV light, spray, wind, and other irritants. Openshaw Opticians also ensures you receive a snug and secure fit, since the nature of water sports means there is a greater chance of losing your eyewear in the water.
This aside, our water sports eyewear uses polarised lenses which improve your vision by reducing glare from water and adjusting to different light conditions. This makes our lenses perfect for sailors and fisherman.
