Sunglasses
« on: June 04, 2017, 10:09:44 PM »

Folks,

Are there any sunglasses out there which are impact resistant to cricket ball. If yes, any specs such as can withstand up to so and so speed ?
Similarly any plain glasses versions that can be used for night games which can resist cricket ball impact?

Thanks in advance,

I don't think anything is going to be that impact resistant as the frame will be bent out of shape if the ball hits them forcing them onto your face.

Its more about looking for frames that dont have nose pad parts , or any other part of the frame , that would have sharp enough edges / metal etc , that upon impact , could stab the eye . Folding , or bendy rubber nose pads , and good smooth frames are ideal . Arms with internal bendable wire are also advantageous.
Re standard glasses for night games , you can get clear prescriptions for any sports glasses/most sunglasses .
Ive got Nike Fleet and Adidas Invoke,  and will soon be getting Oakley Crosslink.  Highly recommend any of those .
