We Can Help You Avoid Accidents
Vision issues can compromise your safety on the court or field. You may not avoid a ball heading toward your head because you failed to track it properly. Poor eyesight can make it hard to navigate obstacles along the sidelines.
You may not know you’ve been dealing with vision issues. If you’ve never consulted an optometry specialist, you may not realize your blurry vision is symptomatic of a deeper issue. Avoid competition until your eyes are checked. Otherwise, you will be susceptible to accidents.
Prescribe the Right Pair of Sport Glasses
Following your eye exams, our optometrist may reveal that your vision is far from ideal. We may conclude that your eyesight is putting you at significant risk. Of course, we can also mention a solution to that problem.
Our optometrist may prescribe a pair of sports glasses you can wear while competing. These sports glasses are designed for competition and won’t easily break even if you play a full-contact sport.
Furthermore, your sports glasses can also help with eye safety. You won’t have to worry as much about accidental eye pokes or hits, because your glasses are your last line of defense. Eye safety is so important some athletes wear sports glasses with no vision issues.
Our Optometrist Can Provide Emergency Eye Care
Accidents can happen anytime you’re playing a contact sport. You can get hit by a pitch near the eyes while playing baseball. Tennis players may accidentally hit you in the eye with an elbow. Due to competitors' open gloves, mixed martial arts can harm the eyes.
Seek emergency eye care from our optometrist if you’re in a sports accident. Allow our optometrist to treat your injury immediately so that they can minimize the damage.
