Night lenses – Rugby

Contact lenses for Rugby

Let’s face it, whether your face is being ground into the mud, or you’re the one doing the grinding, sports glasses or contact lenses just aren’t fit for purpose for rugby. Mud, sweat, blood, (tears?) can all interfere or dislodge your contact lens. And there’s nothing worse that having the ref stop the match whilst you ask your props to get down on all fours and scrabble around in the mud for your lens. No one wants to see that!

Ulster’s No.8 David McCann fixing his daytime lens on the pitch in the middle of a game. 5 minutes later the medic came on to fix them again. In the minutes before the first fix he can be seen on TV fiddling with his eye, focusing on his lens, not the game. Night lenses mean this never has to happen again.

So whether you play rugby as an amateur or a professional, then night lenses could be the solution you’ve been waiting for. Night lenses are contact lenses uniquely custom made to your eye shape that you pop onto your eye before you go to sleep and which naturally correct your vision while you sleep [they work by a process called Orthokeratology – find out how they work here]. Simply remove in the morning to have perfect sight all day, no need for glasses or day lenses. No need for laser surgery. Just repeat every night, daily repetition as you would with day lenses, except just 2 annual lenses as opposed to 730 with daily lenses, so better for the environment too!

The future of eyecare is not to have anything in your eyes or on your face when you’re training, playing a match, or pummelling a scrum half

(you guessed it, the person writing this was a scrum half… but don’t hold that against me)

Free your eyes.
