How glasses can enhance your hobby or sport.

Our hobbies and favorite sports provide us with some of the most enjoyable moments in our lives. Good, comfortable vision can help us get the most out of these special moments. Eyeglass lenses and frames for sports and leisure activities can be precisely tailored to the needs of each individual wearer. Only one thing counts: optimum vision for maximum enjoyment.

Here are some tips for choosing the optimum eyewear for your sporting and leisure activities


80 percent of everything we perceive comes in through our eyes, making them our most important sense organ. In sports, good vision is an absolute must. Poor vision not only means that you risk missing the ball or misjudging the finish line. It can also lead to a feeling of insecurity and ultimately even to injuries. Sports eyewear must perform even better than everyday eyeglasses, and breakage resistance and glare protection are often essential. And, of course, driving along in a convertible on a sunny day makes totally different demands on your glasses than being indoors. Your optometrist or optician can help you choose the best glasses for your leisure time. They can match your eyeglasses to your budget and vision needs. BETTER VISION provides you with some tips and examples on how to ensure that you choose the optimum sports and leisure eyewear for your personal requirements. Do you have any questions about eyeglass lenses for your favorite hobby or sport?
