Why are Sports Glasses Important?
At Oakwood Eyecare, we are passionate about the eye health of our patients and the people within our community. We want them to both enjoy their favourite sports and be as comfortable and safe as possible. Sport is at its best when it is competitive and exciting, however there are potential risks, especially when children are involved.
This danger is heightened when a child takes to the field while wearing traditional glasses. We would always advise against this, as not only can they be uncomfortable, they present a serious risk to the person's eyes if struck by a fast-moving ball.
Eye health is at the heart of everything we do and our specialists can help and advise the best solutions that ensure the safety and comfort of your eyes, including sports goggles and contact lenses.

Our sister practice (Alvaston Opticians) recently received the following feedback from the parent of a patient who had some sports glasses for the first time:
“When it came to getting sports glasses for my son I didn’t know where to start. I just gave Alvaston opticians a call and one of the ladies arranged for him to come and look at a few pairs to choose which would suit him best. His glasses were holding him back as they would fly off his face etc and I was always worried that the ball would hit his glasses and cause an accident (he’s had something similar happen when he was younger on his bike). I’ve been around parents before that believe the sports glasses are too expensive but after recent events it is proof that you can’t put a price on your child’s eyesight!"
