Optical correction might be a problem if the right compensation during sport is not used. Glasses and contact lenses must have a particular characteristics for different sports. Looking at the advantages and disadvantages of every system, the best correction in any case is determined. Protection systems for sport injuries are increasingly used; as well sun filters are necessary in outdoors sports, especially those with high sun radiation (skiing, sealing, etc.) Special attention needs to be given to eye protection in children, and trainers and coaches should be responsible of using such protection. On the other hand, Refractive Surgery is the final solution for all refractive defects. It can be performed with the Excimer laser over the corneal surface, or implantating an intraocular lens.
