High-Performance Skiing Eyewear in Toronto

Equipping yourself with the proper eyewear is crucial for a safe and enjoyable experience on the ski slopes. Today's ski eyewear comes in various designs and lens options, each tailored to enhance visibility and protection in snowy conditions.

Junction Optometrists’ is here to guide you through our diverse ski eyewear range. We'll help you navigate the key design and functionality features, ensuring you find the perfect match for your skiing needs.

Choosing the Right Ski Goggle Design

Although smaller versions are available, ski goggles are designed to protect your face and eyes, making most ski goggles large enough to cover much of your face. They fit around your eyes so that they will not let in snow, ice, or wind that might hinder your vision. These larger goggles are usually held in place using a thick strap.

Smaller ski wear designs look similar to regular sunglasses, with side shields that may or may not be detachable to keep out snow and ice. These designs often feature cable or wraparound legs to keep the goggles in place as you ski.

Some ski goggles can easily accommodate a small pair of glasses underneath them, while others may be designed with inserts for prescription lenses that can be custom-made and placed between the goggle lens and your eyes.

The Best Materials for Ski Eyewear

Ski goggles are often made of softer, more flexible materials than eyeglasses or sunglasses, with the most popular materials being nylon, rubber and propionate. Unlike plastic or glass, these materials tend not to become misshapen or brittle in the cold. These materials are also less likely to injure you if you should fall or hit something while skiing.

How Lens Colour Can Improve Skiing Safety

Today, many ski eyewear are fitted with lenses that have an orange-yellow hue, which helps enhance contrast by blocking blue light. This lets you see shapes, objects and bumps in the snow more clearly.

Skiing is also a sport where “seeing the world through rose-coloured lenses” may be a great option! Rose is an excellent contrast-enhancing alternative to the standard orange-yellow hue.

The best lenses for skiers should provide ultraviolet protection and anti-fogging features such as double lenses, anti-fog coating and wide vents. Nothing is more bothersome and potentially dangerous than skiing with fogged-up skiing eyewear, which hinders your ability to see ice patches and obstacles in your way.
