Sports Injury Prevention and Awareness

Summer is drawing to a close, but sports season is not over. If you play sports, you need the right gear. And that includes protective eyewear. & Assoc, Inc the Ohio sports eyewear experts offer some pointers about eyewear from the Canton, Akron and Cleveland eye doctors:

  1. Impact Protection

durable specialty eyewear for sports in Cleveland OHContact is inevitable in some sports. Your eyewear should be shock absorbent and you want to choose frames and lenses that are resistant to smashing.

We recommend: Rec Specs. Their wide variety of styles for men, women, and youth, paired with incredible durability, makes Rec Specs sports eyewear a great option, and they are compatible with any prescription.

  1. Glare

Don’t let the glorious sun ruin your performance. Glare from asphalt, water, and other mirror-like surfaces can flash into your eyes and interfere with your vision.

Ask your optometrist in Richmond Heights, OH about polarized lenses for optimal outdoor vision.

  1. UV

Ultraviolet rays from the sun are absorbed by the sensitive tissue inside your eyes. Exposure to this cell-changing invisible radiation can cause damage to your eyes and vision over time, sometimes leading to vision loss many years later. Youth sports eyewear and sunglasses for kids in Akron OH
