Prescription Sunglasses

Prescription sunglasses are often the best solution when you want clear, comfortable vision outdoors or when driving on a sunny day. They eliminate glare and the need for squinting in bright conditions, which can reduce vision and cause eye strain.

Even if you normally wear contact lenses and non-prescription sunglasses, there will be times when your contacts become dry and uncomfortable to wear due to wind, dust, etc. Prescription sunglasses enable you to be outdoors all day without the discomfort from the contact lenses.

More Comfortable, Clearer Vision while Driving

If you normally wear prescription eyeglasses, you face a dilemma when driving, especially on sunny days. “Clip-on” sunglasses, or a modern magnetic version of them, for your eyeglasses can sometimes scratch your lenses or can be difficult to put on without taking off your eyeglasses.

Another option is to purchase one pair of prescription eyeglasses with transition lenses. Transition lenses darken automatically when outdoors. A common disadvantage to some of the transition lenses is they often don’t darken properly inside a vehicle because some of the sun’s ultraviolet rays are blocked by the vehicle’s windshield. However, new technological advancements in transition lenses are proving this wrong. On the market today, is a transition lens that will now darken the way you want it to while inside a vehicle.

For convenience and comfort, a solution that seems to suit almost everyone’s needs for seeing in the sun is prescription sunglasses. For easy access and so you don’t forget them, store a pair in your car or boat so they’re always there when you need them.

Choose From Many Lens Styles and Frames

Prescription sunglasses are available in a wide variety of lens materials and designs. From high-index lenses for thinner, lightweight lenses, to progressive lenses or often called no-line bifocal lenses. For boating, fishing, and driving polarized lenses offer superior glare protection from light reflecting off water and roadways.

If you plan on wearing your prescription sunglasses when playing sports, working with power tools, or engaging in other activities that have the potential to cause an eye injury, please choose lightweight lenses made of polycarbonate or Trivex. Lenses made of these materials are far more impact-resistant than glass or plastic sunglass lenses.
