Eyewear has become an integral part of sport since it was first introduced to the sporting landscape.
While some sports such as basketball, football and rugby are not yet considered to be ‘core’ sport, eyewears have played a major role in the popularity of the sport.
From basketball, rugby, soccer and football to cycling, golf and tennis, eyeglasses have made their way into every aspect of the sporting experience.
According to data from the sportswear company EY, eyecare products are now used in more than 160 countries around the world.
The figures include products that are worn in the game, such as goggles, visors and visor cover, as well as in the office.
Eyewear was first recognised in the UK in the 1960s, and is now used to enhance a person’s appearance and enhance the player’s performance in a sport.
In recent years, the sport has seen a rise in the use of eyewash, with more and more countries including the United States, Japan and Germany embracing the trend.
In 2016, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) made it clear it would not recognise the use and promotion of eyeglass-wearing by athletes at international events.
With a new sporting revolution in the making, we take a look at some of the best and most popular eyewares available.
The most popular sport-related eyewashes There are many sport-specific eyewashing options available, ranging from simple water-based, to gel-based or waterproof and even silicone-based.
For example, many of the most popular water-resistant eyewasure options are made from a blend of various materials.
There is no one best sport-friendly solution for all athletes, however, the most common sport-oriented eyewathes include: The Nike Free-range Aquatite is the most widely used water-proof, gel-and-breathable eyewatch.
