Your eyes are an essential part of nearly everything you do. Whether it’s your job, your hobby, or just relaxing, you probably rely on your vision more than any other sense.
90% of eye injuries are preventable. The right pair of sports or safety eyewear can be the only thing that stands between you and a devastating eye injury. Investing in specialty eyewear could literally save your vision.
Brighton Eyecare offers a range of prescription and non-prescription eyewear to keep your eyes safe during any activity.

The impact of a baseball or a hockey stick could cause serious eye issues. Injuries causing broken orbital bones or retinal detachments are not uncommon, but they are usually avoidable.
Even sports without a ball or a puck could expose your eyes to injuries and damage.
Snow reflects up to 80% of the sun’s UV rays. If your ski or snowboarding goggles do not offer 100% UV protection, you could develop snow blindness: a condition that damages your retinas.
No matter what kind of sports you like to play, there is protective eyewear for every athlete. Take the necessary precautions to keep your eyes safe so you can focus on having fun.
Sports eyewear is about more than safety. In addition to protection, a good pair of sports eyewear can optimize your vision so you can perform better. Adding prescription lenses to sports eyewear gives you clear vision with added stability.
Plus, we can use special tinting and coating to make the most of any light conditions. For example, glare reduction can be hugely helpful if you’re playing in, on, or near the water.
If you work in construction or other industries that require safety equipment, you probably understand that there are different kinds of safety eyewear. For the casual handyperson or hobbyist, you may not realize that the type of safety eyewear matters.
Safety eyewear comes with different ratings and is designed to withstand different forces. For instance, some types of safety eyewear undergo rigorous crash, fall, and impact testing. These types are designed to protect your eyes from debris that could suddenly come towards your face.
However, this same type of safety eyewear most likely isn’t designed to withstand chemical contact. If it made contact with certain chemicals, the plastic could melt or dissolve, leaving your eyes vulnerable.
It’s vital to know which type of safety eyewear will best protect your eyes in your unique situation. If you are unsure, talk to our optical staff. They would be happy to discuss your needs and help you find the right safety eyewear for you.
Comfort is one of the main reasons people choose not to wear their safety eyewear. Workers may complain that their eyewear is uncomfortable, or doesn’t properly fit over their prescription eyeglasses.
Purchasing your safety eyewear from an optical boutique can help prevent these types of issues.
Our team will help you find the right safety eyewear, providing you with the ideal fit that is comfortable to wear. We can even put prescription lenses into your safety eyewear, offering you clear vision without the hassle of wearing your glasses underneath.
We can help you avoid eye strain, stay comfortable, and protect your eyes on the job.
Brighton Eyecare is conveniently located in Brighton Marketplace just off McCormond Drive, between Save on Foods and The Keg.
