Soccer goggles, AFL goggles – get ready for the 2014 season!

January is a great time to get your eyes organised for the 2014 season. At Paul McCarthy Optometrist Drummoyne, we offer Sport Sight – vision solutions for sports people young and old, amateur and professional.

If you can’t see well, you can’t play well so first things first………….

A comprehensive eye test and sports vision assessment is essential for all sportspeople – this enables us to detect any eye health issues and discuss with you the best vision correction options for you and your sport.

Wearing your everyday glasses on the sporting field is downright dangerous – an on-field collision with a player or ball when you’re wearing metal or plastic frames can cause a serious eye injury to you and potentially injure another player. Additionally, match officials can prevent you from playing if they believe your glasses pose a danger to either yourself or another player on the field.

These reputable brands together with premium polycarbonate prescription lenses meet the FIFA and Football Australia player eyewear requirements under Law 4 and are also worn by senior and junior AFL players. Dutch professional footballer Edgar Davids set the trend, wearing sports goggles due to his eye health issues with glaucoma.

As correctly prescribed and fitted sports goggles take up to 3 weeks, now is the time to act! Click on “Request an Appointment” at the top of this page and we’ll be in touch with you to arrange an appointment for you or your child.
