An eyeglass gets scratches and dirt many times which are irritating and needs to be cleaned. Blurry vision is also a disadvantage when it comes to a sport that involves running and passing. Wearing eyeglasses in sports like soccer or basketball is dangerous because no one can tell when the ball would hit the face which may crack the lens and causes damage to the eyes.
