Sports glasses and goggles
To help you excel in your favourite sports, we provide a wide selection of prescription sports glasses and goggles from leading sports eyewear brands like Oakley and Bolle.
Prescription sports glasses and sunglasses
Sports glasses serve two purposes:
- Eye protection, specific to the sport
- Vision correction, if required
As specialists in sports specific glasses and sunglasses, we can help you to identify your requirements and choose the right eye protection and vision correction for your favourite sport.
We also offer prescription sports masks and goggles for water sports like swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving, and winter sports like skiing and snowboarding.
Why should I wear sports glasses?
Sports glasses are specially designed for a safe, secure fit when worn for sport.
Whilst spectacles and sunglasses offer style and practicality for everyday living, they are not designed for the movement, speed and impact associated with many of the sports listed above.
Specialist sports need specialist gear. Not only can we advise on the requirements for your particular sport, such as tinted lenses, UV protection, specialist fit and eye protection, but we can also assist you in finding the perfect product.
We’re here to help
If you’re considering purchasing a pair of prescription sports glasses or goggles, you’ve come to the right place.
You can shop online and choose from a range of swimming goggles from just £35.00, available in a range of spherical corrections (without astigmatic correction) – just choose the nearest Sph (DS) measurements from your most recent prescription. There’s no need to send in your prescription to us.
If you would like to order full prescription goggles (with astigmatic correction) or any other type of prescription sports glasses, and you have an up-to-date spectacle prescription, then all you need to do is arrange an appointment with one of our expert dispensing opticians. You can book an appointment online – choose a Spectacle Dispensing Appointment as this will be with the right person and for the right amount of time.
