I am a novice player, who having played the sport on a handful of occasions over the years has decided to have another crack at it. One problem, i wear glasses all the time, any helpful tips from spec wearers would be helpful.

I wear glasses too and don't have a problem playing squash in them. I sometimes get sweat on the lense when practicing, but it never seems to happen during a match.

They even protected me from a light knock to the face with a friends racquet once.

One bloke I played with said he spent a couple of weeks in hospital 20 years ago when his lenses shattered during play. He swears by the polywhatever lenses now,though they scratch more easily.

I have played squash for about 6 years now and wear glasses all the time, i have never had any problems apart from knocking them off my own face once or twice ( most emabrassingly during my second ever session with my coach!).  The may protect from some more minor ball impacts but might shatter if hit hard.  All in all keep wearing them if they are comfortable.

A search "eyewear" has brought up 20 replies.

So while you are waiting for more interest in this topic take a read.

Polycarbonate plastic lenses, industrial strength, are essential for specs in sport.
