The Women's Race is an event that is celebrated in practically all Spanish cities with the aim of making society aware of the fight against breast cancer and collaborating with different organizations to fight for different solidarity causes. It is for this reason that, for one day, sport joins these causes and thousands and thousands of women run so that the money contributed to the race can be used for research into different diseases and serve to curb certain scourges such as gender violence and female genital mutilation, thus fighting for the defence of children at risk of social exclusion.

How does Vision Direct cooperate in these races?

The Vision Direct virtual store of replacement lenses joins the support in the fight against breast cancer and the different causes that are promoted in the Career of the Woman, to assist in making society aware of the need to be supportive and cooperate together, since they are inconveniences that affect us all. Vision Direct participates in the Women's Race with a team of runners also committed to the cause in the race to be held in the city of the Spanish capital. In the case of this race, two running shoes and a team of clothing capable of practicing sports are required. In addition to this, if you are one of the runners who, in order to practice their sports routine, need to change their lenses for contact lenses, you should know that there are some tips you can follow to do so:

  • You should replace your lenses with your contact lenses, as they are more likely to be lost while you're running, while they can slip more easily or be damaged if you fall, and you can stick them in your face. Vision with contact lenses is more extensive so you can have good vision while playing any sport.
  • Many people use disposable contact lenses for sports purposes only, although it is a better option to opt for silicone hydrogel contact lenses for running, as they are perfect under conditions of eye irritation, while oxygen is better for the entire eye. At Vision Direct, there are several different types of athletic contact lenses available, so you can ask about the best choice for the type of sport you do and how often you use contact lenses and lenses.
  • In the event that the sports you play require you to get wet or have contact with water, you will have to avoid wearing contact lenses or use waterproof lenses that do not allow a single drop of water to enter your eyes, as this will cause the lenses to move quickly and even lose them, in addition to causing great discomfort for the athlete.

Although it is not enough to prepare yourself a little earlier to face it more easily: this way you will enjoy it more.
