POC Goggles Technology - POC Clarity Detail

In the heat of competition sport can be fraught with hazards, not least for people in need of corrective vision. Taking to the field of play in a pair of traditional eyeglasses can be a huge hazard. Traditional eyeglass frames were not designed for the rough-and-tumble of sport!

Your everyday frame probably isn't designed to provide a secure fit when on the move at pace, and even if it was, it's also unlikely to be fitted with impact-resistant lenses capable of withstanding the impact of a tennis ball, squash ball, football, or even the occasional faceplant!

If you do need prescription eyewear when playing sport, we sell a diverse range of sports protective eyewear designed specifically to fit comfortably, help you see clearly, and protect your eyes in a host of different sports. This is purpose-built protection for your eyes.

Wearing protective sports glasses no longer means compromising on style either - we stock some of the latest frames from popular brands including Bolle, VerSport and Progear, complete with modern styling to help you look the part during play.
