Wearing contact lenses is a great option for sports lovers, who will derive multiple benefits from the practice, it has been asserted.
Not only does it affect their hand-eye coordination – which is essential for many sports – but the practice of wearing glasses can be impractical and even dangerous. For those who normally wear glasses, it may be worth trying contact lenses, as they can provide a safe and effective solution to the issues, noted Mary Comber, editor of Health & Fitness magazine.
"With ordinary glasses, sweating can create a problem – glasses can slip down your nose – and when doing vigorous exercise such as dancing for example, or inverted yoga poses, they can fall off," she noted.
In addition, working out in very cold weather can cause lenses to steam up so, in these instances, contact lenses are a great option, she suggested.
Many famous sportsmen and women have highlighted the benefits of using contact lenses when playing, including the world's number two tennis player, Novak Djokovic.
