A survey of Italian coaches, trainers, and physical education teachers sought to determine attitudes toward vision correction in athletes. Those interviewed believed it was important to correct vision problems during sports, but they were not likely to recommend that their athletes try contact lenses. Coaches who wore contacts themselves, however, were more likely to suggest them to sports participants.

Another solution besides corrective lenses may be the daily practice of eye exercises. (You don’t even have to be an athlete to do them!)
