Introduction: Over the years, playing sports has evolved as a profession from being a fun activity. Athlete across all sports work very hard on their skill to improve their performance where vision plays a significant role. Different aspects of vision such as depth perception, hand-eye-body coordination, colour, contrast, visual memory, and visual reaction time must be functioning at the highest level for an athlete’s better performance. Advancement in contact lenses has enabled many athletes with significant refractive conditions the ability to maintain their vision at the optimal level. Contact lenses have become the ideal vision correction choice for virtually anyone involved in sporting activities. The use of contact lenses for vision correction in sports playing general population has been found four times higher than in the overall adult population and is the preferred choice when compared to spectacle correction or refractive surgery. Contact lenses offer several advantages over spectacle. The main objective of contact lens corrections is to provide an excellent vision which is stable in all conditions encountered during sports. Different sport offers different kind of challenge to the athlete which has to be taken into consideration before advising the contact lens.
