What to Look for in Basketball Goggles
Frame Technology – The last thing you want is your eyewear moving around on your face distracting you from the game. Having well-designed frames with the right strap and/or temple setup is key for maintaining goggle alignment.
Lens Technology & Saftey – Your basketball goggles lenses should meet or exceed the ASTM F803 safety standards, meaning they can withstand a 40 to 65.1-millimeter projectile fired at a rate of 90 mph. This will keep eyes safe as the goggle lenses won’t break or become separated from the frame during play. All goggles in our guide meet or exceed the ASTM F803 safety standards.
Sizing – The best basketball goggles are made a little smaller than glasses meaning if you wear a 53 in glasses the 55 sized goggles will fit you just fine. For assistance with sizing feel free to Contact Us, and our sports opticians will answer all your questions.
