This week was the start of the 2009-2010 NBA season. I am a hoops junkie so this makes me pretty excited. Watching the Pacers in their season opener, I definitely see some potential for them. Don’t get me wrong, I am not expecting them to go deep in the playoffs, but I think they are heading in the right direction in terms of the guys they picked up in the off-season and the draft. All of the new acquisitions are tough, with a desire to play hard and intense on defense.
I have been in love with the game of basketball all my life, playing throughout high school and college. I still play in a morning game at the local YMCA, which is more about finding a fun way to stay in shape than anything else. What has been interesting for me is realizing how important my vision is when it comes to playing basketball. Up until I was 30, I had no need for vision correction and I took my sight for granted while playing sports. Then it hit me that I couldn’t see the other end of the court all that well and I might have an actual reason for missing so many shots! Needless to say, contact lenses have made my life so much better when it comes to playing basketball because I finally have perfect vision again and I can focus on playing ball instead of how well I can see.
In recent years, I have discovered the benefits of daily disposable contact lenses. They are great because I can wake up, open a new lens and hit the gym. Since I wear a new pair every day, there is no deposit build up on the lens and my comfort level is at an all time high. Currently I am wearing CooperVision’s Proclear 1-day daily disposable, which is a great contact lens.
