RIA Eyewear Offers Style and the Best Protection on the Pickleball Court

by The Dink Media Team on

We recently went in depth on what is quickly becoming one of the bigger trends in pickleball: the increase in players wearing protective eyewear, both recreationally and professionally.

In a recent poll in The Dink's very popular newsletter, over 61 percent of the over 10,000 respondents said they always wear protective eyewear when taking the court. Another eight percent said they plan to wear eyewear in the near future.

So 70 percent of pickleballers wear or intend to wear protective eyewear in the near future.

That's more than a trend. 

Enter RIA Eyewear, the leader in protective eyewear for pickleball. As the Official Protective Eyewear of USA Pickleball since 2020, RIA has been keeping pickleball players safe on court while changing the way they see the game. 

RIA develops all of their pickleball lenses from shatterproof materials to ensure the highest level of protection. The company's polycarbonate lenses are 5x more impact-resistant than traditional polycarbonate and are well equipped to handle pickleballs traveling at high speeds.      

RIA has become known for their bestselling Court HD+ lens technology, developed in collaboration with world renowned lens maker ZESS. Built through extensive color science research, the company’s Court HD+ technology enhances contrast on the court, allowing players to pick up the ball more easily. 

All of RIA’s lenses are non-polarized, specifically to help pickleballers maintain optimal depth perception while also providing 100 percent UVA/B protection.  The company’s lenses are built to stand up to the toughest conditions and are treated with coatings to combat fog and glare.
