However, there are many different kinds of sunglasses that offer different levels of protection. Depending on what you're looking for in a pair of sunglasses, you'll want to be aware of some important features to look out for when selecting.

This article highlights the advantages of wearing performance tennis and softball sunglasses.

What are the Benefits of Wearing Performance Tennis and Softball Sunglasses?

Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Spending time in the sun increases your risk of cataracts, macular degeneration, and pterygium. Sunglasses blocking UVA and UVB rays can help reduce your risk of these conditions.

In addition to protecting your eyes from UV rays, sunglasses also reduce intensity of the sun. Wearing sunglasses can help reduce the intensity of the brightness of the sun while, with the proper tint, highlight the color that is key to your success on the court or on the field. 

Sunglasses can also improve your performance in sports and other activities. This is because they help improve your vision and reduce eye fatigue. They also protect your eyes from debris, wind, and other potential hazards.

How do Tennis and Softball Sunglasses Improve Visual Performance

The lenses of tennis sunglasses often are larger in size than regular sunglasses which provide better coverage and protection for your eyes.

If you are looking for a pair of sunglasses to help improve your performance in yellow ball sports, consider investing in a pair of tennis and softball sunglasses. Solar Bat’s Performance Tennis and Softball tint is a gradient tint with an aqua tint in the bottom 70% of the lens formulated to highlight a yellow ball against the background of the court or field.  The upper 30% of the lens is a gray tint that will reduce the brightness of the sun in upward gaze such as when serving in tennis or fielding a fly ball in softball.

Here are a few tips on how to choose the right pair of performance tennis and softball sunglasses:

  1. Make sure that the lenses offer adequate protection from UV radiation. 
  1. Choose a frame that is comfortable and won't slip off your face when you're sweating. A good way to test the fit of a frame is to put it on and then shake your head vigorously from side to side and up and down. If the frame stays in place, it's a good fit.
  1. Make sure the sunglasses don't impair your peripheral vision. To test this, put on the sunglasses and look around quickly in all directions. If you can see clearly and without obstruction, the glasses do not interfere with your vision.
  1. Finally, consider the style of the sunglasses. Performance sunglasses come in various styles, so choose a pair you like.
