Glasses for hockey helmet - the abstract

In the heat of the moment, being able to see a hockey puck flying at your head gives you the ability to analyze the benefits of a fight or flight scenario quickly. If your vision is blurred, it impedes your ability to make the winning play.

So, what is the best answer to obtaining 20/20 vision during the game and keeping your head intact?

Prescription Hockey Visors

The use and availability of prescription visors have been debated in hockey rooms and forums for several years. One concerned parent turned inventor created the Helmet Shield as a possible solution to the age-old question. 

The Helmet Shield, according to the inventor, provides protection and sight enhancement without the use of goggles or contact lenses beneath the helmet.

How it works is once a player has seen the Ophthalmologist and has their prescription, the prescription is infused into the visor fastened inside the helmet.

The benefit of a prescription visor is that it would eliminate the fogging over that usually occurs with goggles and protects the eyes without worrying about glass fragments due to a hard hit.

Without these concerns looming in the back of the player’s mind, they can focus on the task at hand and play to their full potential.

Oakley and SportRX also offer a version of the prescription sports visor using PRIZM lenses and special-ordering through their site. In this case, you customize the visor on their site with the prescription, and they will make it and ship it to you.

The reviews show that prescription visor has been well received.

Benefits Of Using Prescription Visors

There are several benefits to using a prescription visor, such as:

  • Prescription visors are distanced from the face, so there is less fogging up.
  • If your eyes are sensitive to contacts or irritate them, you need not wear them.
  • Greater visibility without the use of goggles
  • Greater visibility without having to worry about the safety of your glasses
  • Less self-conscious about how you look so you can focus on the game

Prescription visors can be the right solution for you; however, you should be aware of some of the disadvantages of using prescription visors.

Disadvantages Of Using Prescription Visors

Things to consider about using prescription visors:

  • Unlike glasses, the visor sits further away from the eyes, which may strain vision, especially with peripheral vision.
  • Headaches from straining your eyes
  • Dizziness due to the imbalance of vision
  • The cost can be significantly higher than for goggles or contacts.
  • Prescription visors have a limited selection of places you can get them.
  • Moving your entire head down to see vs. moving your eyes down

You may find that prescription visors are a viable option for you and work well-within your comfort level. If you see more disadvantages than advantages, you may want to try another option, sports goggles.

Prescription Sports Goggles 

The one thing that can be said about prescription goggles is that they are easier to find in every color under the sun to add a bit of personal flair to your game. Goggles do come with their own advantages and disadvantages, just like prescription visors.

Benefits Of Wearing Prescription Sports Goggles

  • They are form-fitting to the eyes, so it is easier to see
  • Sports goggles protect the eyes.
  • They are easily adaptable to head size and helmet size.
  • There is no irritation or dry eye associated with prescription sports goggles.
  • No risk of Hypoxia associated with sport goggles
  • A definitive fashion statement, be trendy.
  • Keeps sweat from rolling into your eyes
  • Keeps out wind and debris from the eyes

Disadvantages of Wearing Prescription Sports Goggles

  • Peripheral vision is impaired, especially at the corners of the goggles.
  • Goggles can fog over if worn inside a caged helmet.
  • Greater risk of being hit due to fogging or peripheral vision obstructions

Wearing Contact lenses During Hockey Games

If you are not a fan of visors or goggles, you may enjoy the freedom that contacts can provide while maintaining 20/20 vision and peripheral vision. Sports forums have recommended that obtaining soft contact lenses is the way to go if you are going this route.

If you are used to wearing contacts in your everyday life, this may indeed be the most comfortable method for you but, as with everything, contacts have their own list of pros and cons.

Benefits Of Wearing Contacts

  • No impediment to vision, even peripheral
  • Comfort level, especially if you wear them all the time, allowing you to focus on the game.

Disadvantages Of Wearing Contacts

  • No eye protection
  • Itchy, red eyes if your eyes are sensitive to contacts
  • Risk of Hypoxia 

What To Look For In Prescription Sport Eyewear

Now that you are aware of the options out there and the advantages and disadvantages of each one, you should know what to look for in protective prescription gear.

First and foremost, the normal protective gear you would wear in a working environment does not translate well to a sporting environment. Sports are high-impact, and you need to purchase equipment made to hold up in this kind of environment.

There is a variety of shapes and sizes to suit personal style. With hockey, you would want to select eyewear that fits inside a helmet snugly and comfortably unless you are using a visor or contacts.

There are sport-specific goggles catered to the specific challenges that each sport provides. The make of the lens is important, but so is the framework that holds it, making sport-specific frames a good choice for the longevity of form and function.

Sports eyewear is generally comprised of polycarbonate because of its impact-resistant qualities. Another quality of polycarbonate is that it offers UV protection, which provides adequate protection for outside play.

The scratch-resistant coating is attractive, especially in contact sports, and makes them incredibly durable. Sports frames are usually equipped with rubber around the head and nose to cushion the blows of impact sports.

When determining what kind of prescription eyewear you are going to use, asking your optician for solutions to your concerns will steer you in the right direction. They can provide you with several samples in the frame, lens tint, and fit. Fit is of paramount importance to improve your game.

Photochromic lenses (transition lenses) are also something to consider because they allow you to see through various changing light conditions. Your eye doctor will be able to advise you of what brands will fit your needs. Feel free to shop around to make sure you have the right fit.

Final Thoughts 

Performing your best as an athlete requires that you have:

  • Clear Vision
  • Comfortable Fit
  • Safety

If these things are covered, you are less distracted and able to keep your mind on the game instead of adjusting the fit of your eyewear or scratching at itchy, red eyes. Your performance greatly depends on your eyesight to improve your reaction time and be self-aware.

Going in prepared and ready to play with the proper equipment is safe, and that safety extends to your teammates who will be soon celebrating their next win!

Both my kids play hockey with glasses and have only ever bought the cheapest helmet at Canadian Tire. Unless your kids are wearing some crazy Elton John glasses, they'll be fine. The bigger issue will be fogging up their glasses. I use the dish soap trick and it has worked quite well.

My son has been playing with glasses for years. No helmet changes needed, but our optometrist did suggest cutting a small line of the foam on the side of the helmet if fit was an issue.

As for fogging, there are a few good sprays on the market that help combat this but I’ve heard dish detergent is good as well.

My first suggestion would be to try to wear contact lens. If he is not ready to poke his eyes, then he should put his helmet on, then gentle put his glasses on. You may need to adjust the helmet to allow more room on the sides. He should also be wearing a cage.

I grew up playing hockey with glasses under my helmet.

You have to start with the glasses on. Stretch the helmet sides at the ears and pull out on them as you slide over your head. Once down, it should sit with little disturbance to the glasses. If you don't pull this sides out when going on, it can catch and pull the glasses.

May not be old enough for disposable contact lenses, that would be my first choice but you should get the helmet properly fitted. It should not be a problem.

    sport goggles under a hockey helmet

    Hi there Optiboard! Been lurking here for a few months, finally have a question that I need some help with

    Have a patient who is a ~+ OU, 10 years old, very active. He plays hockey a lot and has never worn his glasses while playing because they do not fit, nor give any protection under his current helmet. My office hasn't fit him in anything yet, but they have tried an option from Wal-Mart that he can't see out of (I've not seen this pair yet). They have tried what we have in stock for sports goggles (a few of the Z-Leader from Hilco) and they do not fit under his helmet very well. They tend to get lifted off his nose.

    My question, does anyone have a suggestion of someplace to look for a better solution to my young patient's dilemna? We've only tried the Z-Leader, and the only other line I know a little about is the Rec-Specs from Liberty. Any other options for a child? The biggest requirment is being able to wear it while playing hockey.

    Thanks in advance!


    PS. he's coming in next week for a CL fitting and training, we'll see how that goes as well.

    High School Field Hockey Eyewear Rule Altered for Season

    By NFHS on July 15, nfhs newsPrint

    In response to longstanding concerns regarding the wearing of goggles in high school field hockey, the NFHS Board of Directors approved a change in the eyewear rule that will take effect with the upcoming season.

    Rule in the NFHS Field Hockey Rules Book, which currently states that “All field players shall wear eye protection that met the ASTM standard for field hockey () at the time of manufacture,” will now state that “Goggles may be worn by all field hockey players.”

    In addition to the current rule, an additional note was due to take effect in as follows: “Beginning in the fall season, all eye protection shall be permanently labeled with the ASTM standard for field hockey at the time of manufacture.”

    Since goggles were mandated by the NFHS Board of Directors in with the intent to lessen the risk of catastrophic eye injuries, there have been a number of concerns that led to the current rule modification.

    While there is a required ASTM standard for field hockey goggles, there is no NOCSAE standard, which is preferred as NOCSAE’s aim is to protect against worst case injury. The ASTM standard is not protective against a direct ball to the eye in testing. NOCSAE will not certify any facial/eye protection unless it is integrated into a helmet.

    One of the ongoing concerns has been that ASTM-certified goggles are not available for all field players, notably those who wear corrective lenses. Since the current rule cannot be met by individuals with glasses, state associations have been issuing waivers for students with corrective lenses to allow participation.

    Also, in addition to lack of available product to meet the rule, no significant research data has indicated that goggles have reduced the number of eye injuries, particularly those of a catastrophic nature.

    Finally, while the mandatory eyewear rule was put into effect as a guard against eye injury, the wearing of goggles has created a higher risk concern regarding the penalty corner. Under the current eyewear rule, players cannot remove their goggles to wear full facemasks on penalty corners, which is the most dangerous play in the sport. Now, players can elect to wear corner masks.

    The NFHS Sports Medicine Advisory Committee, which was in support of the action by the Board of Directors, noted that the ASTM standard that has been required does not eliminate the risk of injury for which the rule was established (loss of an eye).

    “Given the fact that the previous rule that required goggles did not completely lessen the risk of catastrophic eye injuries, and that the product does not exist for players with corrective lenses, and that there is no NOCSAE standard for field hockey goggles, and that the wearing of goggles prevents players from wearing corner masks on penalty corners, the Board believed it was time to make the rule permissive in nature rather than mandatory,” said Julie Cochran, director of sports and liaison to the Field Hockey Rules Committee.   

    Although the rule has been changed to state that goggles may be worn, state associations, schools and parents can still elect to require the use of goggles.
