If you need to use glasses to participate in sports, there are some things you need to think about before you chose protective eyewear. Are they safe or could they cause more damage to your eyes than wearing nothing? This video shows how choosing the correct eyewear can actually protect your eyes from damage.

Before choosing what type of protective eyewear you need during sports, here are three things you need to know:

  1. Does your sports organization allow you to wear protective eye wear and if so, are there limitations to style and tint?
  2. Do the frames have to be safety certified? If so, Progear is the only manufacturer out there that is safety certified. They hold the highest certification available.
  3. What type of lenses are required? Usually, polycarbonate or Trivex are required but most athlete choose Trivex due to the superior vision.
