What to look for in a pair of Basketball glasses

Frame Technology - Your frames should be comfortable, durable and designed to stay on your face. Distractions are a no-go on the court mid-game, so sturdy, comfortable frames that stay put are what you want in a pair of basketball glasses.

Lens Technology & Safety - Your basketball glasses should meet or exceed the ASTM F803 safety standards. The ASTM is the American Society for Testing and Materials. They publish protective eyewear standards for various sports. F803 is the most strict standard for protective eyewear. That means they would be able to withstand the impact of say, a ball to the face by a missed pass or rebound.
