Explore our collection of volleyball glasses and bump, set, or spike with confidence in the health and safety of your eyes. Whether you play volleyball outdoors, on the beach, or on an indoor court, we have impact-resistant sports glasses, sunglasses, or protective eyewear that deliver ultra-clear views.
Whether you play indoors or out, opt for rugged, impact-resistant volleyball glasses or sunglasses with shatterproof lenses and an included strap. Indoor volleyball players generally prefer lightweight sports glasses that will stay in place while they jump and dive for balls. While beach volleyball players often wear spike-proof sports sunglasses with a single, visor-style lens for a secure fit and a wide field of view.
Yes, all volleyball leagues allow you to wear glasses while playing, but they need to meet certain requirements. If you need prescription lenses to see, we recommend choosing a pair of impact-resistant sports frames with shatterproof lenses to ensure that your eyes are kept safe from both projectiles (like the ball), and collisions with other players or the floor. Consider glasses from trusted brands like Oakley and Rec Specs by Liberty Sport, which have both earned reputations for top-of-the-line impact resistance for superior strength.
No, normal glasses are usually not safe for playing volleyball or most other sports. Volleyball requires impact-resistant eyewear and unless you wear sport or safety frames on a daily basis, the chances that you could damage your eyeglasses or yourself, are high. Opt for a sturdy pair of Volleyball-specific glasses—preferably with an attached leash or strap to keep them in place while you play.
Yes! Polarization cuts glare from bright sunlight reflected by surfaces like water, sand, and snow. If you play beach volleyball in the middle of the day, a pair of polarized sunglasses can help you see clearly.
No. Beach volleyball can be played in any impact-resistant sports sunglasses or goggles, whether they have polarized lenses or not. But polarized lenses are preferred by pro beach volleyball players and amateurs alike. We always recommend wearing your beach volleyball sunglasses with a connected leash or strap to keep them in place.
We recommend the Oakley Flak 2.0 as the best sunglasses for outdoor volleyball. With their lightweight, semi-rimless design, grippy bayonet temples, and high-quality Oakley lenses, these state-of-the-art shades will protect your eyes and provide ultra-clear views.
