High school fall sports teams begin practicing in a few weeks. These athletes have spent the summer training, practicing, and taking extra lessons. Each team has specialized gear that they need to perform at the top of their game, whether it be tennis racquets, new running shoes, mouth guards, etc. One specialized piece of gear that is often overlooked is contact lenses.
Contact lenses are shatter-proof, they don’t get fogged up, and they offer full peripheral vision. Contact lenses are a more comfortable option for helmet sports, such as football and hockey. In most sports settings there is no time to wipe or adjust glasses during game play.
CooperVision has set up a website (www.mycontactsports.com) dedicated to teens who play sports. This website gives teens and parents the information needed about contact lenses to help them decide if contact lenses are a good option.
Schedule an eye exam and contact lens fitting. We will be happy to discuss all the benefits and options available and help you get to the top of your game!
