Participating in sports is a great way to stay healthy while also having fun. It is important, though, that you protect your eyes properly during these types of activities. At Kelly Vision Center, we provide sports vision services in Goodlettsville, TN, and the surrounding areas. Keep reading to learn more.
What Is Sports Vision?
Sports vision is a term used to describe the type of services provided for athletes. These services can include sports vision screenings and protective sports vision gear. Our optometrist is trained in this area of eye care to better serve patients and athletes.
Sports Vision Screenings
Before participating in any type of sport, it is important that you have a proper sports vision screening. This type of vision appointment will check your vision and eye health to ensure that you are in good shape to participate in your chosen sport. Having good vision or the proper vision correction is essential to staying safe while playing sports. Without good vision, you can be putting yourself and your team mates in danger.
These types of appointments can also be useful in uncovering vision or eye health problems that you may not have been aware of.
Protective Eye Gear
Your eye health and vision are highly dependent on having the appropriate protective eye gear when participating in sports. Protective eye gear will vary from sport to sport. You should discuss with your coach concerning the type of gear you may be in need of. Many sports teams will provide this gear, but if not, our team will help you find the right stuff.
If you already have a prescription for vision correction, please be aware that you may need specially made protective eye gear that also incorporates your vision correction prescription. If this is not possible, then you may need to consider wearing contact lenses while you are participating in your chosen sport.
In addition to sports vision, we also provide optometry services for every member of your family. We can help you with annual eye exams as well as special optometry services and treatments for eye health conditions you may be facing.
