Even leisurely sports such as walking and fishing require protection for your eyes. One of the key elements are UV protection, as you will be subject to regular UV rays which are potentially harmful to eyes and cause premature aging. Thousands of eye injuries are reported every year by fisherman who have received a fish hook in their eye due to not wearing adequate sport safety glasses. The damage is often permanent and can cause blindness. For those who enjoy leisurely outdoor activities, a polarized lens coating is recommended. Polarized lenses minimize the amount of glare that is experienced when looking at bright or shiny surfaces such as water.
