Sports Performance

Just think of all the things that might be difficult with blurry vision: shooting that 3-pointer, hitting a baseball or even jumping hurdles. So, by correcting your vision, you could actually giving your game a boost.

Your eye care practitioner can help you figure out the amount of correction you need, as well as the best type for the sport you play. You’ll also want to remember the importance of protecting your eyes. Depending on your sport, protect them from injury with safety glasses and from the sun’s UV rays with sunglasses. Check out our Contact Lenses and Sports FAQ now.

Gold-medal-winning soccer star Heather O'Reilly teamed up with CooperVision to educate people involved in sports on the importance of healthy vision. Contacts give Heather the competitive edge she needs both on and off the field – listen to what she has to say about wearing contact lenses.
