At Snyder Optometry, we provide eye-wear for every function in your life from reading and driving, to mountain-biking and rock-climbing. Specialty eye-wear ensures a greater measure of safety has been incorporated into the design. Polycarbonate is the ideal lens material used by specialty eye-wear designers due to its shatter-proof and impact resistant properties. Many types of lenses and frames are available in this category that is tailor-made for the active sports enthusiast.
Snyder Optometry features a variety of Wiley-X eyewear styles to span a variety of applications from general use to having dust and particle protection. These products feature polycarbonate lenses (Shatterproof Selenite™) that meet ANSI Z87.1-2010 high velocity and high mass impact standards, as well as US Federal OSHA 1910.133(b)(1)(1) Standards. This level of protection exceeds the needs of most eye-wear users, but for military, first-responders, tactical police, and extreme sports enthusiasts, these standards can make all the difference.
Wiley-X provides 100% percent UVA/UVB protection with distortion-free clarity. Their T-Shell™ Lens Coating resists scratching in extreme environments and ensures your pair of protection eye-wear can go the distance.
Ordinary prescription glasses, contact lenses, and sunglasses do not protect against eye injuries. For children, eye injuries are the leading cause of blindness in the United States and most injuries occurring in school-aged children are sports-related. Moreover, 41% of all emergency room visits for children age 11-14 and 20% of all visits for children age 5-9 are from sports equipment injuries. Most importantly for parents is that 90% of all sports-related eye injuries can be avoided with protective, specialty eye-wear.
Depending on the age of your child and the sports activity they are involved in, we will help you find the right eye-wear solution for them so that accidents are always minimized. Proper eye-wear and fitment can help your child achieve better results in sports when they have the confidence they need to wear their protective glasses the entire game.
