Recreational Glasses Q & A

When are recreational glasses needed?

It can be hard to be at your best when your vision is impaired. Specialists in sports vision like Dr. Weitzman understand your unique needs as an athlete. Depending on your choice of sport, there are a number of recreational glasses to choose from – the right pair of protective sports eyewear exists to help you play like a champion.

Often, protective eyewear is required for activities like karate, basketball, football, biking, or hiking. Recreational glasses offer you top-notch vision correction to help you see more clearly, while applying state-of-the-art protection to prevent eye injuries while you engage in your favorite sports.

No need to worry about adjusting frames while you move or scuffing your lenses. Sturdy, protective sports eyewear are designed to keep up with you. Especially when you’re at the top of your game.

What are recreational glasses lenses made of?

You can play your hardest knowing these lenses are designed to take a hit. Protective sports glasses lenses are crafted from polycarbonate – a highly resistant material that can withstand impact without shattering.

Recreational glasses are also made of a scratch-resistant material that provides the same ultraviolet rays protection as leading sunglasses on the market. Enjoy clearer vision and protection knowing that your protective sports eyewear will not break easily.

What are recreational glasses frames made from?

Most protective sports eyewear frames are made from either polycarbonate or ultra-resistant plastics. With a rubber padding designed to rest against your face, you’ll have a comfortable fit for your toughest games.

Recreational glasses frames are stronger than standard eyeglasses frames. These are designed to be well-fitted, flexible, and highly resistant to damage. Whether you’re playing ball with your friends or hiking a steep terrain, your recreational glasses frames will hold true.

What is the lifespan of recreational glasses?

It depends. Most people can get a year or more of wear from their recreational glasses, but you need to consider:

  • How often you will wear your recreational glasses
  • How much stress you place on your protective sports eyewear
  • Your eyeglass prescription changing over time

Be sure to have regular check-ups with Dr. Weitzman at Sorrento Valley Optometric Center to get the most from both your recreational glasses and your regular eyewear.
