Contact Lenses vs. Glasses for Sports

conatct lenses vs glasses sports greensboro

Many Fox Eye Care patients that normally prefer to wear glasses for work or reading choose to wear contact lenses for sports. There are a number of reasons why disposable daily contacts are an excellent choice for high impact sports like basketball or soccer.

Full Peripheral Vision

Contact lenses provide full and unobstructed peripheral vision during sports because the lens covers your eye and there is no frame to obstruct your field of vision. Sports glasses will have a flat lens and a frame that will limit clear vision in all directions.

Glasses Fog During Sports

Glasses will frequently fog up during intense sports. Contact lenses are not affected by fog or rain during intense workouts in various weather conditions.

Less Chance of Injury

Glasses can break or shatter with a sharp elbow to the face causing considerable injury. It is true that a contact lens may get dislodged and fall out during sports, therefore Fox Eye Care recommends daily disposables for easy replacement.

Schedule a contact lens eye exam or fitting at one of our convenient Greensboro, NC locations. We are the contact specialists and will help you choose the perfect contacts for your favorite sport and lifestyle.
