Sports Goggles for Kids

Most people assume sports goggles are only for kids who need vision correction. In reality, protective eyewear is highly recommended for all kids involved in athletic activities. According to the National Eye Institute, eye injuries are a leading cause of blindness among children in the U.S. Sports goggles are a perfect safe and durable choice for protective eyewear and are available with or without a prescription.

Dissecting Sports Goggles

Designed specifically to withstand high levels of force, sports goggles like Rec Specs are constructed with high-impact nylon and impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses. Adjustable straps also keep them securely in place.
