Improve your hand-eye coordination and enhance sports performance


Anybody that participates in competitive sports wants to enhance their performance. Improving sharpness and reaction times can depend on your vision and the type of eyewear you use.

As Rodenstock Sports Lens Practice of the Year, we specialise in helping our patients find the most suitable sports eyewear. Lens technology has advanced dramatically to give sportsmen and women improved hand-eye coordination as well as quicker reaction times.

Good eyesight will help you to react to a challenge and keep a clear eye on fast moving balls. Wearing normal spectacles while playing sports is not a good idea; not only can they hamper your vision but if they smash you run the risk of getting glass in your eyes. Contact lenses are the favoured eyewear alternative for sports professionals.

Glare and bright sunlight can also affect your performance. It is important that you use protective eyewear that shields your vision from harmful ultraviolet radiation and reduces glare. The crisper your vision is the more confident you will be.

Racket sports are a very common cause of eye injury. Hard, fast moving balls can cause catastrophic damage to your eyesight and in many cases complete vision loss. Some racket competitions have made protective eyewear mandatory, simply because of the high risk of injury.

Our optometrists will talk to you about your vision requirements and advise you on the most appropriate eyewear for your chosen pursuit. Depending on your vision requirements, our specialist team will give you all the information you need to protect your vision efficiently.
