When participating in most sports, being able to see clearly is essential. However, those who require corrective lenses might find themselves distracted from the activity due to concerns about not breaking their glasses. Prescription eyeglasses can be fairly costly, especially for those who have transition lenses and designer label frames.
Beyond replacement costs, there are additional risks to wearing regular daily wear eyeglasses during sports. If you are hit by a solid object such as a ball, shattered lenses could damage your eyes. If a fall occurs, the nosepiece could also cause injury to the bridge of the nose. None of these situations are good ones. Yet, a solid solution for sporting enthusiasts that need vision correction is to wear prescription sports goggles or prescription sports glasses to protect their daily glasses.
Prescription Sports Glasses: The #1 Way to Protect Glasses
Even wearing prescription glasses on a band or string around the neck can be risky during sports like ball games, swimming, skiing, jogging, and others involving vigorous motion or moving objects. Rather than taking chances while also struggling to keep glasses on your face, there are several options for prescription sports eyewear and evennon-prescription and prescription sports glasses and sports goggles geared towards athletes and more active people.

How to Protect & Store Sports Goggles and Sports Glasses
After going through the effort of finding the perfect pair of prescription sports goggles or glasses, taking care of them properly is vital to keep them in functional condition for a long time. Even non-prescription sports glasses deserve to be protected when not in use, and here are a few ways to ensure they stay in good shape and are ready to use when you need them.
Rinse & Clean Before Storing Glasses
Sporting activities can result in filmy layers of dirt or sweat, which should be removed before putting sports glasses and goggles away. Rinse them with water before using a spray cleaner or cloth that can smear dirt particles and cause scratches on the lenses. Allow them to air dry if possible.
Wipe Sports Glasses Off Gently
After rinsing and allowing the glasses to dry, use a soft, clean, lint-free cloth to wipe them down, paying extra attention to the lenses. This removes any smudges or water spots that may remain from the cleaning process. Avoid using textured materials like clothing or paper towels that can transfer dirt or scratch the lenses.
How to Properly Store Prescription Sports Glasses
When you're not wearing your prescription sports glasses, avoid the temptation to toss them in your athletic bag or set them down where they might get damaged. You will want to keep them in a protective case to prevent them from getting broken, scratched, bent or dirty. In addition to hard-shell cases, microfiber pouches may be best suited for some types of prescription sports goggles and is a bit less bulky than a hard case.
