Marietta Vision is one of the best known suppliers of custom sport tint contact lenses in the world. Many professional athletes wear sport tint lenses to enhance their visual performance. The use of sport tint lenses is growing; especially among golfers, baseball players and the new Sun Tac for runners.


The gray-green lenses allow golfers to better differentiate distance on a golf course. Golfer Justin Leonard has commented that with the gray-green lenses he is able to separate out every blade of grass.
Baseball players benefit most from the amber lenses because amber blocks out blue light which is called "visual noise" by vision experts while the red colors, such as a baseball's seams, are accentuated. Mark Maquire was and Chipper Jones is a wearer of sport lenses.

This lens helps reduce glare during competitive sporting events, such as baseball and golf without having to wear bulky, sometimes loose fitting sunglasses.

At the Jewish Community Center in North Miami Beach, professional football and baseball players from all over the country come to train with Pete Bommarito.

He works with them on speed and strength. But some athletes are turning to colored contact lenses called Sports Tints to give them an edge.

NFL wide receiver Jason Hill is a believer. He has played with the San Fransisco 49ers and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

It made a huge difference for me personally. I felt like a new player out there," Hill said. "The grass was greener, everything was brighter more vivid."

The lenses come in several hues. The color used depends on the sport. Football players usually wear blue, golfers gray-green, and baseball players amber.

Ophthalmologist Linda Kaplan fitted 20-year-old Max Pomeranz with amber contacts to help with his baseball game.

'When I’m batting and looking at the pitcher trying to see what pitch is thrown I want to be able to read the seams coming off the pitcher's hands,' Pomeranz said.

Dr. Kaplan explained that the red seams on the baseball stand up when you're wearing the amber lenses.

Right now Bommarito is focusing on the physical, but is looking into the possibility of using visual aids to enhance performance.
