Sunglasses can be a very necessary piece of kit when taking part in your preferred sport. There are many different types of sport sunglasses for different occasions and it is important that you opt for the most suitable pair for your sport. Just think, you wouldn’t wear hiking boots to run the London marathon, would you?
If you’re protecting your eyes from the sun during your cricket season you may want to opt for some sturdy yet light sunglasses with lenses that block out the sun but don’t make the pitch too dark to see colours and most importantly the ball!
For those who prefer long bike rides you will probably prefer to purchase some shades with anti-fog lenses so you don’t have any sight issues. Wearing sunglasses for a long time can be unpleasant on your nose and ears so it would be preferable to purchase some with light frames and innovative technology so as your ears will not be annoyed. Side ventilation is another feature that can be bought which would get rid of the inevitable sweat that runs down the side of your head.
You should consider the time of day that you train as this may have an underlying effect on the type of lenses that you opt for. However, you can buy sunglasses and lenses separately which gives you the option of swapping lenses in different lights. It is very important to manage light during sport and this is why wearing sunglasses can enhance performance. Some golfers suggest that polarized lenses help to take the glare off the green which helps them determine where the line is a lot better. They also prevent the need to squint which helps vision massively.
It is quite clear that sunglasses are extremely beneficial for many sporting situations but it is choosing the right pair that is the tricky part. You wouldn’t necessarily want the same pair of sunglasses to run a marathon as you would to play a round of golf or go skiing.
