Can I wear contact lenses while playing sports?

Yes. Patients can wear contacts while playing sports and doing other physical activities. Contact lenses are the best vision correction option for athletes.

Contact lenses are a more flexible, safe and stable form of eye correction than eyeglasses. They can enhance visual skills like depth perception, peripheral awareness, and eye-hand/eye-foot coordination. If your activity involves vigorous exercises, a soft contact lens is an appropriate choice.
