Eyewear for Tennis
Tennis like any sport requiring super-fast hand eye coordination performance is greatly dependant on clarity of vision.Tennis eyewear with prescription lenses is a vital asset for any player who generally requires a spectacle correction
Clear vision however is dependent on light conditions also,bright light causing distracting glare and low light levels reducing visual contrast of vital objects such as a Tennis ball moving against the court background. Tennis sunglasses with full dark tints are helpful for bright conditions and Yellow contrast enhancing tints increase visibility in low light levels.Some glasses for Tennis have interchangeable tinted shield lenses to provide versatility for different light conditions.
Field of vision is also important for Tennis sunglasses and eyewear with an adequate wrap curve to the lenses providing full all round unrestricted sight is a vital factor.
Impact protection is also important and a direct ball strike to the eye area or racket strike in doubles play can cause devastating injuries to the eye.Tennis goggles or Tennis glasses with high impact resistant lenses made from Polycarbonate material (standard on all our models) is vital for safety in Tennis ,as in all other fast moving racket sports.Similarly Tennis being predominately an outdoor sport requires glasses that give complete protection from harmful UV light which causes,even with relatively short exposure times,premature aging of the eye tissues and potentially can cause Melanoma eye cancer that can be fatal.Polycarbonate lens material completely blocks UV light even in an un-tinted form.
Good secure frame fit and comfort are also important where rapid head movement is often involved
