Choosing The Right Prescription Sunglasses: Protect Your Eyes From The Sun


Prescription sunglasses are the best way to protect your eyes from the harmful effects of the sun's UV rays. Our optometrists at Focus Vision Optometry advise that you put on your prescription sunglasses every time you go outside for maximum protection. One of the most important decisions that you have to make is choosing the right prescription sunglasses and we are here to help.

1. Go for an Eye Exam

Before picking the right prescription sunglasses for you, you need to visit an eye care clinic for an eye exam. An eye exam will enable you to understand your vision needs. If you are a resident of California, Focus Vision Optometry also has clinics in Calimesa, San Jacinto, Beaumont, and Redlands Heights.

2. Choose the Right Lenses

The findings of your eye exam are critical in helping you choose the right lenses. We recommend that you pick sunglass lenses that block 75 % to 90% of visible light and 100% of UVA and UVB rays. Such lenses will not only protect your eyes from damage by the sun's rays but also enable you to see better in bright sunlight. You should also consider picking polarized lenses if your eyes are often irritated by the glare that bounces off shiny surfaces in the sun. Polarized lenses will filter out this glare, and they are an excellent choice if you have an active lifestyle that involves boating, driving, skiing, and playing sports.

3. Pick the Right Frames

The eyewear that you pick should not only perform well but also look good. Whether you are going for a standard brand or a designer brand, it's essential to pick frames that make you look good. The frames you choose should complement your face and your lenses. When choosing the right prescription sunglasses, feel free to try on numerous frames until you find the one you like.
