Whether you’re an extreme sports enthusiast or just go running occasionally, contact lenses give you the freedom to focus on your sport.
Contact lenses help you to keep your eye on the ball and plan your next move plus you will notice contrasts and images don’t distort in shape or size.
What’s your sport?
Running and gym
Whether you like to run, jog or work out at the gym, think how much easier it will be if your glasses aren’t slipping down your nose or bouncing up and down to the rhythm of your feet.
When you're no longer weighed down by glasses contact lenses can help you go the extra mile.
Football and rugby
For the rough and tumble of football and rugby, contact lenses are a no-brainer. They help you to retain focus on the ball. Plus your glasses wouldn’t last five minutes in a scrum!
Cycling and mountain biking
If you cycle to work or jump on your mountain bike at weekends, you’ll love the liberating feeling of contact lenses. They can’t get splashed or dirty, and they don’t mist or stream up in the rain. Plus, they won’t come between you and your helmet.
Tennis, squash and badminton
Think how much more confident you can be on the court if you swap your glasses for contact lenses. You can really go for each shot, free from the worry of knocking off your glasses. Plus contact lenses give you a more complete, all-round view without frames restricting your field of vision
Would you enjoy rock climbing wearing glasses or would you worry they’d fall off? And what about canoeing or horse riding, where you need both hands? It’s no time to be fiddling with your glasses if you’re galloping across the countryside or are halfway up a cliff face.
Stunt sports require intense concentration and physical agility. They sometimes involve jumps and 360-degree twists, and you won’t want your glasses adding to the risk.
You may only go skiing or snowboarding once a year, but contact lenses can make a huge difference to the quality of your time on the slopes.
You can wear any style of non-prescription goggles or wraparound shades, and you don’t have to worry about your glasses falling off.
You can also help protect your eyes from ultra violet rays, reflecting off the snow or from the sky, with ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses.1
If you take part in any outside activity, it is as important to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays, as it is to shield your skin. The intense ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun can damage sensitive cells in your eyes. This can eventually affect your vision. Ask your optician about ACUVUE® UV blocking contact lenses.
If you like to swim or take part in water sports, seek advice from your optician about activities involving contact with water. Exposing contact lenses to water may increase the risk of eye infection. If your lenses unexpectedly come into contact with water, discard them and replace them with a fresh pair.
ACUVUE® Brand Contact lenses provide sharp and stable vision without glasses getting in the way. So you can be hands free to enjoy any sport or high-adrenaline adventure that takes your fancy.
1. UV absorbing contact lenses are NOT substitutes for protective UV absorbing eyewear such as UV absorbing goggles or sunglasses because they do not completely cover the eye and surrounding area. You should continue to use UV absorbing eyewear as directed by your Optician.
