The 3 Best Sports Glasses of 2019

Sports are to blame for more than 40,000 eye injuries each year in the United States. Luckily, the use of eye protection can help reduce the number and severity of these injuries. Whether you’re playing baseball or biking, a pair of sports glasses will help keep your peepers safe.

Ordinary glasses don’t properly protect eyes and can even be dangerous to wear while playing sports (a hit to the face could shatter the glass yikes), but sports glasses and goggles are designed to shield the eye area. Look for a pair with impact resistant padding as well as features that will prevent the glasses from slipping (such as a wrap-style frame). Here, some smart options to choose from.

1: Best Overall: HEAD Impulsive Protective Eyewear

The last thing you want is for your goggles to distract you from a play. That’s why you should look for a pair of sports glasses that fit comfortably and allow you to focus on the game. The HEAD Impulsive Protective Eyewear sports glasses feature an ultra-light design, a clip-on strap to keep the goggles in place while you move around and hinged-style temples for added comfort. The lenses are made from shatterproof polycarbonate and have an anti-fog treatment.

People who own the HEAD Impulsive Protective Eyewear say that the sports glasses don’t move around while playing and are comfortable to wear. Some people even say they forget that they have the sports glasses on! These are a top pick amongst racquetball players for keeping their eyes safe from fast balls coming their way.

2: Best for Prescription: Oakley Half Jacket 2.0

BThe tried-and-true Oakley Half Jacket 2.0 glasses are the ideal pick for athletes who wear glasses or contacts, since there’s a vast array of customizable lenses to select from, according to your needs and preferences. These best-selling glasses boast high-definition optics, proven durability, the comfort and performance of the three-point fit, and a lightweight, stress-resistant frame.

In addition, all lens options provide 100 percent UV protection and are tested to guarantee a high level of protection against objects at different speeds.

3: Best Anti-Fog: Pyramex 1-Force Sports Dual Pane Anti-Fog Goggle

BWhether you’re about to shoot a basket or catch a football, you need crystal clear vision. Anti-fog sports glasses, like this Pyramex style, help make sure nothing gets in the way of your eyesight. The goggles’ dual lens technology features an outer polycarbonate lens (the protective layer) and an inner acetate lens (which prevents fogging). The lenses are also coated with H2X anti-fog technology while a vented foam carriage helps keep the face cool. They’re also 99 percent UVA, UVB, and UVC protected so a smart buy when shooting hoops outdoors.

Reviewers say that the goggles don’t fog up, even in high humidity climates. The sports glasses are also available in tinted and mirrored lenses, which may be a good option depending on the type of lighting you’ll be playing in.
