These special eyeglasses primarily correct double vision (diplopia) or eye positioning. Regular eyeglasses improve the vision of one or both eyes or help patients see better up close or at a distance. Prism eyeglasses specifically assist patients in maintaining proper positioning and function of both eyes, essentially keeping them working in unison. Patients require prism eyeglasses if one or both eyes show double vision or a single, flat image instead of a normal three-dimensional image appearance. Using prisms, vision can be corrected by manipulating light and narrowing the focus in the lenses.
In addition to skill and strength, vision is a very important component to perform well in any sport. Eye protection should be a major concern for all athletes, especially in high-risk contact sports. Many patients suffer sports-related eye injuries each year, which can be prevented by wearing proper protective eyewear. Sports goggles are designed to protect eyes from foreign objects, sun damage, and contact with other athletes.
At Georgia Eye Physicians and Surgeons we offer a variety of sports goggles specific to each sport. Many are designed for contact sports like basketball or soccer, to fit in helmets for football or baseball, and for sports with equipment like tennis or golf. Sports eyewear is also available with prescription lenses. Drs. Segal and Lay want to help you protect your eyes and improve your visual performance while participating in your favorite sport.
