Whether you require eyewear for performance or safety – or both – there is a sizeable range of eyewear available to meet these demands.
Eyewear is not designed just for sedentary tasks such as reading or working at a computer; in fact, there is a lot of eyewear designed specifically for encounters such as sports (even contact sports), work and other hobbies or tasks which may be considered more physically demanding.
In any of these encounters, protective eyewear can be paramount in preventing eye emergencies/injuries.
Sports such as snowboarding greatly benefit from protective eyewear which prevents overexposure to the elements, UV rays and injuries from falls or accidents.
In some professions, such as welding, protective eyewear is necessary and being fitted with properly functioning gear is of the utmost importance.
Even more simple tasks or at-home chores, such as painting the walls in your house or mowing your lawn, are made safer for your eyes by wearing the proper eyewear.
An estimated 90%+ of eye related injuries could have been prevented by wearing proper eyewear.
Being fitted with new, specialized eyewear should start with a comprehensive eye exam at Vivid Eye Care. After evaluating the overall health of your eyes, determining your prescription and discussing your intended uses and needs of the eyewear, we will be able to make recommendations.
There is often a stigma when it comes to sports, safety and specialty eyewear; preconceptions that eyewear is bulky, uncomfortable, inconvenient and aesthetically unpleasing.
With a massive selection of carefully selected inventory at Vivid Eye Care, this does not need to be the case. We will fit you with eyewear that provides you with the functions you require, while looking good too!
Our office is part of the Cranston Market Clinic and is just two minutes off of Deerfoot Trail. Vivid Eye Care is in the same plaza as the Sobey’s and Scotiabank.
