What to consider

Certain tasks, sports and hobbies require different optimal conditions for the best vision.

Different activities have different needs. Here are just a few examples to consider how your your eyewear can be tailored to your chosen activity:

  • Additional protection from injury during squash or metalwork

  • UV protection for outdoor activities

  • Tinted lenses to reduce glare or offer high contrast.

  • Magnified lenses for close-up or detailed work

  • Disposable contact lenses for temporary use during sport

  • Protection from dust, insects and wind during cycling

  • Adding your personal prescription to sunglasses, swimming and ski goggles.

Our dedicated dispensing team are experienced in eyewear for sport and leisure and they can recommend the best options for you.
