Tinted Contact Lenses for Sports
Many professional and amateur athletes wear sport tint contact lenses to enhance their visual performance. The use of sport tint lenses is growing - especially baseball (football & soccer) players, golfers, runners and tennis players. CBS Evening News recently had a feature on tinted contacts for sports.

Runners: The Sun Tac lens reduces overall brightness while preserving 100 percent normal color recognition. These are great on bright days in order to avoid dripping sweat on sunglasses.
