Benefits of Prescription Sunglasses

Prescription sunglasses offer a vision correction method that also deals with glare and UV rays from the sun. Prescription sunglasses allow you to see clearly at all distances without swapping glasses and protect your eyes from conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration due to sun damage. You can enjoy driving, golf, and beach sports without squinting. Prescription sunglasses can also reduce migraine and eye strain triggers like glare and overly bright light.

Our optometrist offers several lenses, tint colors, and coatings to suit your vision correction needs and lifestyle. They can determine which prescription sunglasses give you the best vision and protection for how and where you spend time outdoors.

Lens Options for Personalized Performance

Our optometrist will consider your vision needs and lifestyle when recommending lenses during your exam. Polarized lenses, photochromic lenses, anti-reflective coating, hydrophobic coating, and scratch-resistant lenses are some of the specialty lenses and coatings we offer for prescription sunglasses.

Polarized lenses minimize the blinding glare reflected off water, snow, and other surfaces to improve comfort and visibility. These lenses are great for fishing, boating, and driving.

Photochromic lenses are light-responsive lenses that automatically darken when you are exposed to UV light outdoors. They then become lighter when you are back indoors. These lenses are convenient for multipurpose and everyday use.

Anti-reflective coating reduces distracting glare and eye fatigue by limiting light bounce-back off the interior lens surface and your eyes. This coating is ideal for nighttime driving.

Hydrophobic coating repels moisture, grease, and skin oils from clinging to lenses and obscuring vision. This coating can help keep your vision clear while playing active sports like tennis and basketball.

Scratch-resistant lenses protect your lenses from scratches or damage that can impair visual clarity and durability. These are helpful for many sports and jobs that require crystal-clear vision.

Customized Style and Comfort

We also offer sunglasses in several stylish frame designs to coordinate with your wardrobe and fashion sense. Our optometrist can help you pick a design that suits your fashion and lifestyle. They can ensure you get a pair of sunglasses that fit precisely and have an optimal grip and stability for comfortable wear during several activities.
