for those who wear glasses
My daughter wears prescription eyeglasses and as she turned five, I wondered how her glasses would affect her opportunities or abilities in sports. This summer she joined the swim team and I was concerned about her spending hours at the pool without her glasses on. I am grateful I found a Sight for Sport Eyes an online retailer specializing in sports eyewear for those with less than perfect vision. An easy to navigate site allows you to pick your sport and browse all the options for kids or adults. I am happy that she will not be a spectator when it comes to any sport. From snow skiing to tennis, to swimming, scuba diving or basketball, a Sight for Sport Eyes has a high quality option with a price that was less than I would have expected to pay. My daughter is pictured in the Hilco Vantage Kids Swim Goggles (lenses made of polycarbonate). It is important to get any plastic eyewear made from polycarbonate or Trivex because the material won’t shatter on impact and is lighter in weight. Major bonus: you can get different powers in each lens AND if your prescription changes you can just order a lens rather than a whole new set of goggles.
A great makeup bag by Sonia Kashuk for target allows me to stow her glasses in one side and her goggles in the other. Clear pouches ensure we never leave her eyewear behind and keep them from getting scratched. Polycarbonate scratches easier than glasses lenses so you should take greater care with your sports eyewear.
Proper sports eye attire improves performance and reaction time (not to mention reduces the risk of serious injury from glass and metal frames).
If only I could get her as excited about picking up toys off her bedroom floor as she is about getting stuff off the bottom of the pool…
