Contact Lenses and Sports

Posted by CooperVision on Tuesday, July 12, 2011
In a recent survey of children and youth (ages 8-18), it was revealed that the most important reason for getting contact lenses wasn't to look or see better, it was because they became active in sports.* Contact lenses provide peripheral vision, they don't get fogged up, and are shatter proof. If you or your child is active in sports and wears corrective eyewear, consider contact lenses as a way to help improve on-the-field performance.

Why contacts?
Contact lenses are a safe and reliable option for correcting eyesight on the field. Whatever sport you're involved in, contact lenses can provide convenience and crisp vision. Please remember to follow your coach's instructions in regards to protective eyewear, such as goggles or sunglasses.
