Prescription Football Sunglasses

If you wear prescription glasses, you know how important it is to have a clear vision during all of your activities.  This is especially true for contact sports such as football, where impact and sun protection is also essential.  Below are some key features to consider when shopping for a pair of prescription football sunglasses that will help you perform at the top of your game.

The Right Fit

Your football sunglasses need to fit comfortably on your face and stay securely in place during active play.  They also need to hug the contours of your face and feel comfortable underneath your helmet.  Each model of sports glasses that Marvel Optics offers includes a thorough product description to help you find the perfect fit.  The sizing guide lists several product measurements to help you identify the right size and shape for your face.

UV and Impact Protection

Football games and practices that are held outdoors often last for hours and it is important that your eyes are protected from hazards during that time.  Sports sunglasses are designed to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, which can cause lasting eye damage over time.  They also provide protection from dust, dirt, and impacts while you are playing.  Casual sunglasses often do not fit under protective gear nor do they offer adequate hazard protection.  Sports-specific prescription sunglasses are better suited to meet your needs when playing football.

Style and Options

Finding the right fit and level of protection is essential, but the style is also a consideration when shopping for football glasses online.  Prescription football sunglasses are typically close-fitting but they can vary widely in terms of lens shape, color, and options.  Differing lens colors are available that correspond to the expected light conditions in your area.  Additional options such as scratch resistance and anti-fog technology are available on select models to ensure top-notch comfort and performance.
