Choosing the right vision correction

 

Do you remember the first time you were diagnosed with a vision problem? Maybe you were at school and you could not see clearly in the classroom. Or perhaps you are one of the lucky ones who never experienced any vision problems until adulthood. Whatever the circumstance, it is common to feel a little disheartened, frustrated or resigned when it comes to developing myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism or presbyopia.

The good news is technology is constantly improving and you have more choices than ever to find vision correction options that best suit you. 

It is common for your eye care professional to first prescribe spectacles to help you see clearly. They are convenient to wear and are available in single vision and multifocal designs depending on your vision needs. Additionally, there are a host of lens materials, tints, protective coatings and thicknesses.

As spectacles are a precise combination of a frame and lenses, it is important they are prescribed and dispensed by a professional, to ensure they fit well together as well as on your face. For example, a person with very high myopia may not fare well with a large frame, otherwise the outer lens thickness may be too excessive. 

 

What about contact lenses?

When it comes to your vision, it is important to find a solution that fits in with your lifestyle. For some people, spectacles seem just fine for them. For others, contact lenses provide the freedom to do whatever they like without having to worry about where they’ve put their glasses or having them fall off while bending over. Other benefits include: 

  • Contact lenses are ideal for active lifestyles, including sports, exercising and traveling.
  • Some people prefer the look of going spectacle-free, especially in work and social environments.
  • They don’t slip down your nose when you sweat or pick up reflections, so they won’t obstruct your view.
  • Lenses give you clear all-round vision without the frames of your glasses restricting your view.
  • They don't mist up or get splashed by the rain and won’t break if something accidentally hits you in the face.
  • They can be worn with masks, helmets or any other type of sporting headgear.
  • Certain brands of contact lenses also offer up to 99% UV blocking to help protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays.

Vision Correction For Any Activity

 

Have you or any of your family members avoided a particular activity because of vision concerns? Or perhaps you have struggled to wear your regular spectacles for a sport but feel they get in the way? Whether you’re an extreme sports enthusiast or run occasionally, contact lenses give you the freedom to focus on your sport.

  • Lenses give you clear all-round vision without the frames of your glasses restricting your view.
  • They don’t slip down your nose when you sweat or pick up reflections that distort your view.
  • They don't mist up or get splashed by the rain, and won’t break if something accidentally hits you in the face.
  • They can be worn with masks, helmets or any other type of sporting headgear.
  • Certain brands of contact lenses also offer up to 99% UV blocking to help protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays.

 

WHAT’S YOUR SPORT?

No matter what your sport is, contact lenses give you the freedom to perform at your best.

Running and gym

Whether you like to run, jog or work out at the gym, glasses can sometimes get in the way. Contact lenses can help you go the extra mile, and you won’t have to worry about your glasses slipping down your nose, steaming up or bouncing up and down to the rhythm of your feet.

Football and rugby

For the rough and tumble of football and rugby, contact lenses are a no-brainer as it saves you worrying about your glasses getting knocked off, steaming up or getting dirty and blocking your vision.

Cycling and mountain biking

If you like cycling, you’ll love the liberating feeling of contact lenses. Unlike glasses, lenses won’t get splashed or dirty, and they don’t stream up. Plus, they won’t get in the way of your helmet, and allow you to wear sunglasses.

Tennis, squash and badminton

Contact lenses give you a more complete, all-round view so you can track a ball without the frames of your glasses restricting your view.

Adrenaline sports

When it comes to rock climbing, mountain biking or horse riding, contact lenses are the obvious choice. Halfway up a cliff face is no place to be fiddling with your glasses.

Snow sports

Contact lenses mean you can wear any style of non-prescription goggles or wraparound shades on the slopes. ACUVUE® brand contact lenses also help protect your eyes from UV rays reflecting off the snow or from the sky *.

 

WHICH CONTACT LENSES ARE BEST FOR SPORT?

Daily disposable lenses

You can wear them once and then discard them, without the fuss of cleaning. Plus you won’t have your lens case to clean and carry.

Reusable lenses

You can also opt for reusable lenses for daily wear, which you clean and store after use, and replace every two weeks or once a month depending on the lens.
