Prescription sunglasses provide the benefits of both regular prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses, offering increased protection over off-the-shelf sunglasses. You can use any regular prescription frames, some high-fashion frames or specially designed sports glass frames for a stylish option.
Prescription sunglasses may seem like an unnecessary expense. However, they properly protect your eyes from harsh sunlight. UV rays burn the cornea and lens of your eyes, and exposure to sunlight increases your risk of cataracts and macular degeneration. At NewVision Eyecare in Sammamish, we care about the health of your eyes and want to provide for all your optical needs.
Taking steps now to protect your vision from dangers of sunlight can spare you serious problems now and in the future.
You have a variety of options with prescription sunglasses, just like with regular eyeglasses, including bifocal, multifocal and progressive lenses. You also can choose from high-index, polycarbonate, and plastic lenses.
Other options include:
Consider sports glasses if you actively take part in such sports as tennis or golf. Sports sunglasses are more durable and they’re designed with your comfort in mind as you play sports. In addition to protecting your eyes from dangerous UV rays, you will be shielding your eyes from the sun and glare, which can improve your performance
