Glasses and sunglasses for sport header

If you’ve been inspired to take up tennis, football or athletics this summer, make sure your performance isn’t being compromised by your eyewear!

Sports fans have been royally treated this summer with the Euros, Wimbledon and now the Olympics kicking off this week. Even if you’re not usually a big sports fan, it’s been impossible not to get caught up in the excitement of this summer’s big sporting events.

You don’t need to be the next Gareth Bale or Jennifer Ennis-Hill to enjoy sports; playing sport can be a lot of fun as well as a great way of keeping fit. If you’ve recently been inspired to take up a new sport then you might still be lacking a few kit essentials.

Your sports eyewear is arguably one of the most important parts of your sports kit. After all, how are you supposed to keep your eye on the ball if your glasses keep slipping off?

In this blog we’ll look at the different types of non-prescription and prescription sports glasses available at TescoOpticians.com, so that you can choose which option is right for you and your sport of choice!
