Both ‘sport’ and ‘optics’ will have broad connotations. Fused into one common purpose, sport optics Canada provide its wearers with a clearer vision that may not have been possible before. One popular pastime, if not, the most popular, for sports-mad Canadians is that of ice hockey. Its top pro teams have been vying for supremacy with its southern neighbors for years and have often come out on top.
What does this popular sport have to do with sport optics? A high school student with impaired vision but with great potential as a hockey player no longer needs to be kept back. Mainly for protection, sport optics are being worn on the ice. It is a dangerous sport to be sure. But what is to stop a specialist optometrist from equipping the player with prescribed lenses? Absolutely nothing, and today, it is being done more often than not.
Just think how important this is. Consider a couple of sports by way of example. Take shooting and hunting, for example. Not only does the handler have to be a crack shot, whether he is aiming for a target or hunting deer out in the woods, he needs to make sure that both he and his partners or fellow competitors are safe. He needs to be able to see clearly at all times. As a summer sport, road cycling will always be popular.
But the road ahead needs to be as clear as daylight, all in the interest of keeping cyclist and bike safe. And for that matter, you might just add that it is a legal requirement for visually impaired drivers to be wearing their prescribed glasses at all times. Here, a clue or two has been given on what sport optics are and how they can be used.
