Sports sunglasses are an important piece of protective bodywear, and are indispensable in daylight baseball or softball games. Without a good pair of sunglasses, trying to catch a ball from above can be difficult. According to Prevent Blindness America, more than 40,000 people a year suffer sports-related eye injuries.
Many baseball sunglasses come with lenses that are optimized to eliminate glare and enhance vision, particularly on sunny days. Many baseball players prefer wearing amber sunglasses, even though the lenses aren’t necessarily amber. More often than not, they are either a mirrored type with also known as REVO coating, brown or gray. Polarized lenses are also a plus as they decrease glare and eye strain. UV protection (ultraviolet ray protection) is also a necessity when selecting good eyewear.
Another important feature of sports eyewear is their ability to shield players from serious injury. During a game, a ball can travel at great speeds, and they can potentially cause serious injuries. It is recommended that players use sports sunglasses with polycarbonate lenses, which are able to withstand the impact of a baseball and are virtually shatterproof.
