Sports Vision Wimbledon
Specialist sports eyewear enhances a player’s performance by the ability to see well as well as reducing the risk of eye damage.
It is important that the correct sports eyewear is chosen for the type of sport. Sport specific frames come in different shapes and sizes and can accommodate both prescription and non-prescription lenses. Sport frames have high impact resistance, are made of polycarbonate or high resistant plastic and most will feature silicone padding or rubber to cushion the frame were it comes in contact with the head and nose. Sports such as biking, hang-gliding and sailing would benefit from sports glasses that contour or wrap around the face.
The choice of lenses is also important to get the best enhanced optical performance as well as meeting safety requirements. Lenses in sports wear are usually made of polycarbonate as the material is less likely to shatter into small sharp pieces. It works well in protecting the eyes from fast moving objects. It is also a lightweight material and has a built in ultraviolet protection, valuable for outdoor sports.
Sports eyewear should be comfortable and must be fitted correctly to each individual. At Fiona Watt Optometrists, our dispensing opticians will discuss your every sports need, consult on the most suitable sports eyewear and fit your chosen sports eyewear before you take them away.
Having the correct eyewear is essential to help you perform in your chosen sport. Get in touch with us today and one of our experts will help select the most appropriate sports eyewear for you.

Journey To A Clearer Future
Summer Sports Eyewear
Fiona Watts offer a range of summer sports eyewear solutions to help amateur to professional sports players enjoy the summer sun whilst doing what they love. Throughout many sports, sporting eyewear is accepted as part of everyday life, much like the way bike helmets have become essential for cycling. Our summer sports eyewear range helps you to perform to the best of your ability regardless of the weather conditions.
For running, we highly recommend contact lenses. When you’re in full motion and concentrating on the task at hand, contact lenses give you the luxury of complete focus, as opposed to glasses steaming up and affecting your performance. Furthermore, we also offer spectacle lens wearers, a dynamic ventilation system that admits air and removes moisture to keep you comfortable and seeing clearly. For other summer sports such as racquet sports – including tennis, badminton and squash – we recommend polycarbonate lenses that are impact resistant and offer fantastic eye protection.
Winter Sports Eyewear
Winter sports eyewear helps amateur to professional sports players enjoy what they love doing even through the worst of conditions. Fiona Watt Optometrists provide a range of winter eyewear options to provide protection for the face, as well as the eyes. Our winter sports eyewear solutions help to prevent wind, snow and ice from penetrating with your vision and therefore affecting your overall performance. For skiing, we provide Ski goggles that are generally a lot less intrusive and more comfortable than the standard Ski goggles. Our Optometrists will ensure that we select the perfect size for you that are designed to fit snugly around the eye areas.
