If you are looking to improve your sporting performance as a professional athlete or enthusiastic amateur, we can help you get the most out of your eyes and your game. It is estimated that over 95% of the information we use during sport comes from our vision. However, many people who participate in sport never think to get their eyes tested.
Being able to see well and maximise your vision is key to performing well and enjoying your game.
It is important to include your eyes as part of your training regime. Sports Vision is designed to not only maximise your performance but to ensure sporting activity is both safe and enjoyable.
Different sports require different skills. Your qualified optometrist will discuss your own individual requirements and perform a series of eye examinations to detect any visual deficiencies that may be hampering your performance.
Your optometrist will recommend a plan of action to improve all aspects of your vision and maximise your sporting performance.
Everyone is unique and we believe in achieving the best for you, every time.
Optical Express offers the following vision solutions for sport:
Optical Express is Europe’s number one provider of laser eye surgery. It is the treatment of choice for professional athletes for many sports including golf, rugby and swimming. Laser eye surgery and contact lenses can provide clarity of vision and enhanced peripheral awareness.
We work with some of the finest names in sports eyewear, including Adidas, Oakley and Transitions, to give you a product that delivers the sharpest vision with the utmost comfort and safety. Sports eyewear uses light-weight frames that are comfortable to wear and provide protection and safety. They use larger, wraparound lenses to give excellent peripheral vision and can be combined with vision enhancing tints to improve contrast (for example making a golf ball stand out on the fairway or green).
This range of eyewear is available in both prescription and non-prescription formats.
Sport is a leading cause of eye injury, so it is essential to keep your eyes protected. All of our sports eyewear meets exacting standards for fit and protection, maintaining your eye health and giving you peace of mind while you are competing.
