Everything You Need To Know About Prescription Sunglasses

important-sunglasses-tips-Washington-DC-640x350-1

Make sure your eyes are protected with prescription sunglasses all year round. They combine the advantages of traditional sunglasses and prescription eyeglasses by protecting your eyes while allowing you to see clearly.

If you haven't already purchased a pair, here are some benefits of prescription sunglasses you may not know.

Eye Protection - Sunglasses protect your eyes from UV and blue light, which can cause eye irritation and fatigue. The majority of our frames provide 100% UV protection as well as partial blue light protection, in addition to protection from dust, insects, and dirt particles.

Convenience - Wearing a pair of prescription sunglasses is like having two pairs of glasses in one! You won't have to bother with contacts or clip-ons, and you won't have to wear non-prescription sunglasses over your regular glasses.

Optical Clarity - Prescription sunglasses are customized to your prescription and help you see well even in harsh sunlight. Say goodbye to squinting while driving or enjoying time outdoors.

Contact Issues - Have your contacts become a source of frustration or expense? When your eyes are getting dry or you just need a break from dealing with contacts, prescription sunglasses are a terrific solution.

Q&A

Can I get prescription sunglasses with bifocals?

Yes, you might believe prescription sunglasses offer fewer options, but they don't! In fact, they offer many of the same options as traditional eyeglasses, including bifocals.

If I get prescription sunglass lenses polarized, will that affect the prescription?

A polarized filter is a film placed over the lens; therefore, it has no effect on the lens prescription.
