The Essential Guide to Sports Vision: Why Everyone, Especially Children, Needs Sport-Specific Eyewear

Why Settle for Standard When You Can Be Spectacular?

Imagine cycling down a trail, the wind blowing through your hair and the natural world unfolding before your eyes. Now, imagine a tiny pebble flies up, momentarily obstructing your vision. That moment could make all the difference in the world. We know the stakes at Buchanan Optometrists, you're in safe hands as we are registered with the GOC and ABDO. We're here to provide the highest-quality, sport-specific eyewear to ensure those moments don't happen to you—or your child.

The Risk is Real—And It Affects Us All

Though adults may be more seasoned in their sports endeavours, the risk of eye injury is present at any age. But let's face it, kids are still learning the ropes. According to the National Eye Institute, sports-related eye injuries are one of the leading causes of vision impairment in children. The field is fraught with potential hazards, from hockey pucks to rugby scrums.

Standard Glasses: They're Not Enough

Wearing standard glasses or going without eye protection during sports can be a risky gamble. Everyday glasses are not designed to withstand sports-related impacts, which can lead to damaging fractures and eye injuries. For adults and children alike, getting the right gear for the job is imperative.

Being registered with the General Optical Council (GOC) and the Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO), we're equipped to recommend the perfect frame and lens combinations for a multitude of sports.
