Sports Vision Care – How Haine & Smith can help
In competitive sport the difference between success and failure is measured in hundredths of a second or fractions of an inch. Uncorrected visual problems can have a dramatic effect on sporting ability, not just in terms of visual acuity but also balance, timing, anticipation, glare recovery and colour perception. Research has firmly established a direct link between vision and sporting performance not just for elite athletes, but for all who enjoy sports. Many sports require eye protection from impact, dust and glare, and the use of lens coatings to enhance contrast has become widespread with or without a corrective prescription.
Whether you are a golfer, a falconer, a snowboarder, you fish, shoot, or bowl, Haine and Smith can help with advice on getting the best out of your vision for all hobbies and sports, and offers a wide range of sports and protective eyewear.
