Hawks News · Are you and your children properly equipped for the upcoming sports season?


As a part of Sports Eye Safety Month, MyEyeDr. has all the information you need to prepare for your next undefeated season. Not seeing well can keep you from playing your best and even leave your eyes tired or irritated after a game. Whether you’re a professional athlete or a novice dodgeball player, the doctors and associates of MyEyeDr. can help equip you with your eye exam and updated sports vision products, providing the prescription you need for your best vision.

At each of our locations, MyEyeDr. optometrists can provide you with quality and trustworthy vision care. Finding the right eye protection for your athlete is a crucial play in your playbook. However, getting an annual eye exam can provide more insight into conditions that might put athletes at higher risk for eye injury, such as nearsightedness or a family history of issues like retinal detachment, retinal tears or diabetic retinopathy.

We even have optometrists who specialize in sports vision across the country, like Dr. Michael Peters. He directs the NC Sports Vision program and he practices High Performance Vision™ exams that are specifically designed for active individuals of all levels. Dr. Peters also uses his more than 20 years of experience in sports vision care to offer therapy to help athletes in golf, soccer and tennis.

As members of your local community, our eye doctors are passionate about giving back and being involved in your city. When it comes to sports, we jump at the chance to be a part of the action —that’s why MyEyeDr. practices are the official vision care providers for pro and minor league teams across the country, in addition to supporting local youth sports teams.

To make sure your athlete is properly equipped for their upcoming season and at low risk for eye injury, schedule an annual vision exam and consult with your trusted optometrist. Be sure to check out our style guide to see the prescription sports glasses, sunglasses and goggles that we offer. You can be sure that you’ll find the ideal frames and prescription contact lenses at a MyEyeDr. practice to fit your lifestyle and improve your game.
