Sports & Travel Essentials for Eyewear – What Should You Pack This Summer?

You might know Imranali as Infocus’ Managing Director.  But you may not be aware that he’s also an international volleyball player!…

The Stanmore Jafferys’ volleyball team

Imranali’s team – The Stanmore Jafferys – got all the way through to the semi-finals an international volleyball tournament in Minnesota before unfortunately being knocked out of the competition by Toronto. This outstanding achievement was the result of months of training, but it wouldn’t have been possible without the right eye care and eyewear.

At Infocus we pride ourselves on being one of the best independent opticians in London and are on hand to offer you the best clinical and style advice. So whether you’re looking forward to an active holiday, or a sporting tournament this summer, Imranali has compiled a list of his must-have eyewear travel essentials for you to pack…

Imranali’s travel and sports essentials include daily disposable contact lenses, Tom Ford clip on sunglasses, and Zeiss DriveSafe lenses in Persol frames.

 

  • Contact Lenses

Best contact lenses for travelling

Panoramic vision, supreme comfort and utmost convenience are just a few of the benefits of using contact lenses whilst travelling or playing sports. They offer an unobstructed vision experience and massively reduce chances of injury during contact games. At Infocus Opticians, we stock some of the best contact lenses from world-renowned manufacturers including Acuvue contact lenses by Johnson & Johnson.

  • Clip-on Sunglasses

Wherever you’re enjoying the sunshine, variable light conditions demand flexibility, and eyewear doesn’t come more flexible than Tom Ford clip on sunglasses. These vintage-inspired prescription glasses are effortlessly stylish, whilst also offering maximum UV protection and optimised visual contrast – to be enjoyed on the pitch and on the beach!

  • DriveSafe Lenses

Prescription glasses in the UK with Zeiss Drive Safe lenses

Zeiss’ DriveSafe lenses feature a special coating optimized to improve safety whilst driving – reducing night-time glare from oncoming headlights and improving vision in variable light conditions. These technical innovations combat low concentration levels, making your driving experience safer. Combine these with a suave pair of Persol frames and you’ll be turning heads whether you’re staying in the UK, embarking on a road trip, or driving abroad.

  • Microfibre Cloth and Spray

Microfibre cleaning cloth and spray

Sun, sea and sweat conspire against clear vision when you’re on holiday, so remember to pack your microfiber cleaning cloth and spray to keep your lenses clear. Though make sure to rinse off sand with cold water to prevent stray grains scratching the glass!
