Thursday, January 20, 2011 Bolle offers the best in eye protection

There’s one accessory that’s always needed and never goes out of style. Sunglasses are a necessity when undertaking prolonged activities outdoors. Research shows that long-term exposure to UV rays can damage the eye’s surface. In addition to this, UV rays can also impact the eyes internal structures, which could lead to cataracts and macular degeneration, a breakdown of the macula. Tennis is one of the main sports where players may be tempted to skip putting their shades on, worrying that they’ll fly off their faces or impair their vision and lead to forced errors. Put your mind at ease, Bolle and other companies have already thought of this for you. Offering the Competivision lens technology, Bolle is the first and only company to create lens specifically for tennis players. What makes these glasses stand out from others, which are usually tinted green, Competivision lens mute all light except optic yellow and white, causing the tennis ball too literally pop out on the court. Another feature are the frames themselves which are built for all sports, so all you have to do is order lens specifically crafted for any other activities that you participate in like golf or hunting, and they’ll fit right on. These lenses have also been given the honor of being named the official eyewear of the USPTA (United States Professional Tennis Assocation). Be warned, these glasses should not be worn off the court while you’re doing everyday activities like driving, for this, Bolle includes a pair of interchangeable TNS Gun lens for off court.
