Sports Eye Protection Buying Tips

  • Use the recommended eye protection table to find the eye protection safety standard for your sport. Ensure that the protector you purchase meets or exceeds that recommended standard
  • For outdoor sports, insist on 100% UVA & UVB protection. Additionally, photochromic (lenses that change color) or tinted lenses are excellent for sports in various light situations
  • For both indoor and outdoor sports, anti-reflective coatings add to your comfort by reducing glare
  • Frames must be used with a sports band or retention strap to ensure that the frame stays in place
