Athletes with vision needs often get the short end of the stick when it comes to finding the right pair of sports glasses. Traditionally, the higher the prescription, the more difficult it is to get a sports wrap frame (and the more likely you're to come home with a "no" from your local optometrist). At SportRx, prescription sports glasses are our specialty, and we pride ourselves on helping you see clearly for your next game. Our in-house Sports Opticians are experts at finding a personalized eyewear solution, so you get 20/20 vision when going for the win. Join us as we share the best prescription sports glasses that will help you see better, play better.

What to Look for in Sports Glasses

Sports glasses come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and materials. Throw in Rx lenses on top of that, and no two prescription sports glasses are the same. When searching for the perfect frame for your preferred sport and personal vision needs, there are two main components to consider: frame and lens technology. Let's review how each of these criteria makes a difference in your eyewear — and your game.

Frame Technology

Whether you're sprinting for the finish line, returning a mean volley, or swinging for the fences, a lightweight frame is a must. Heavy frames can lead to discomfort, slippage, readjustments, and, ultimately, distraction from your A-game. Opt for lightweight materials like TR90 Grilamid, Oakley's O Matter™, and nylon, to get a fit so comfortable, you may even forget you're wearing sports sunglasses.

The other non-negotiable on your sports eyewear? Rubber grip. Not only does it enhance comfort, but rubber grip also keeps your frames perfectly in place, even when you break a sweat. This is particularly important for prescription sports glasses, because optical alignment is crucial in getting the most out of your Rx lenses.

Lens Technology

There are several key contributors that go into finding the perfect lens for your sports glasses. From your particular sport, environment, available light, and prescription needs, all of these factors play into creating the best lens for the situation. To get the most accurate lens recommendation for your individual needs, reach out to us. We have a team of friendly Sports Opticians standing by and ready to collaborate with you in finding the ideal pair of lenses for your sport. And, as always, you're backed by our See Better Guarantee™! If you're not totally stoked on your prescription sports glasses, we'll do everything to make it right.

Despite the variety that comes with lenses, there is one shared feature that is a safe bet regardless of sport: contrast-enhancement. This unique lens feature makes details pop, so you can better read the green or track a fly ball. Contrast-enhancing lenses are most often available in copper, brown, and rose, but there are many proprietary technologies to choose from. Check out our Oakley PRIZM™ Lens Guide and SportRx Sport Optimized Lens Guide to see some of these impressive lenses in action.

This unique design is the ultimate solution for athletes who need substantial vision correction but crave the performance of the Rydon sports glasses.

As for the frame itself, the Rydon + Rx Dock is made of lightweight and durable TR90 Grilamid. It has fully adjustable rubber nose pads and temples, so you get a comfortable, custom fit. These prescription sports glasses also use integrated hinges and soft, thermoplastic elastomers which prevent injuries in the event of collisions, impacts, and falls. Overall, if you need sports eyewear that can keep up with your most intense games and strong Rx needs, the Rudy Project Rydon + Rx Dock will quickly become your MVP.
