Running Sunglasses

Protecting Your Eyes While Boosting Performance

Many runners underestimate the importance of running sunglasses when hitting the pavement. Some opt for a cap or sun visor, assuming it's sufficient. However, recent studies highlight the potential damage caused by prolonged exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays. 

 

UV rays pose significant risks from eye conditions like keratitis and cataracts to more severe issues like macular degeneration and eyelid cancer. Whether you're a trail runner, marathon enthusiast, or cross-country sprinter, running sunglasses serve as your primary defense.

 

A Game-Changer in Sports Eyewear

In the 1970s, Oakley introduced the first sports-specific sunglasses, the Eyeshades. These sunglasses revolutionised sports eyewear with a curved design and interchangeable lenses for various lighting conditions. They set the benchmark for performance-enhancing eyewear, a legacy carried forward by today's running sunglasses.

Running Sunglasses - Frequently Asked Questions

Selecting the right sunglasses for running is crucial. Running sunglasses should prioritize UV protection to shield your eyes from harmful sun rays. Furthermore, they should be designed to stay securely in place during your active workouts, ensuring they don't slip or distract you. 

Opting for models with polarized lenses to reduce glare and lightweight frames for a comfortable, performance-enhancing experience.

Polarized sunglasses are beneficial when running in daylight, as they reduce glare from reflective surfaces like roads, water, and buildings. This enhances visibility and allows you to focus on your run more comfortably.

Running in sunglasses protects your eyes from UV rays and relaxes your facial muscles, promoting a smoother stride. While it won't turn you into an elite runner, it can help you perform at your best regardless of your ability level.
