Prescription Sunglasses for Water Sports
Surfing is difficult when you can't see the waves.
If you need prescription sunglasses for any water sport, these are the two best options.
Prescription Surf Sunglasses are the ideal solution for surfers with less than perfect vision. Wearing contacts for water sports is not recommended. If you accidentally open your eyes while under water you may lose your contacts. Even worse is the risk of dangerous bacterial infection caused from wearing contacts in the water.
Why Wear Prescription Surf Sunglasses?
Normal prescription sunglasses are useless in the water, they fall off and can easily be lost or broken. These surf sunglasses are designed for use in the water.
At some point in their life over half of Americans suffer from cataracts; rates are even higher for surfers. Pterygium is an eye disease so common among surfers that it is often referred to as “surfer's eye”. The best protection against these and other eye conditions is wearing eye protection. Prescription surf sunglasses protect surfers eyes from 100% of harmful UV radiation as well as damaging wind and ocean spray.
