At a time of year when many people are burning off the Christmas calories by playing sport and doing more physical exercise, Specsavers in Lewes is raising awareness of the benefits of wearing contact lenses for sport.
Whether you are a professional, an amateur or simply enjoy playing sport socially after work, contact lenses are the ideal vision accessory - even if you normally rely on glasses to correct your vision.
Specsavers store director, Patricia Lofting, says: ‘Many sports require excellent peripheral vision, which is the ability to see outside of the centre of your gaze. Contact lenses afford much greater peripheral vision even than specialist sports glasses, providing you with optimum vision on the field of play and the ability to react to situations more quickly.’
Once customers have decided on which lens is right for them, the store will give them one pair of monthly contact lenses or five pairs of daily disposable contact lenses to try, free.
