Benefits of wearing prescription sunglasses

Wearing sunglasses is beneficial for more than just fashion. Prescription sunglasses protect our eyes from UV rays that can cause long-term damage, and, because the lenses are customized for your visual prescription, you’ll experience clear, comfortable vision while spending time outside. There are so many great designer sunglasses available these days, so there’s no need to sacrifice style for your eye health!


Here are just some of the benefits of wearing prescription sunglasses:


Sunglasses guard against harsh wind, dust, sand, and other airborne debris which can irritate your eyes. Prescription sunglasses also reduce glare and keep you safe while in situations which require your full attention, such as driving or riding a bike.

Prevent eye disease

Exposure to UV radiation can increase your risk of developing cataracts, photokeratitis, macular degeneration, and other serious eye problems. Quality prescription sunglasses protect your eyes from radiation and can significantly reduce your risk of developing eye health and vision problems caused by sunlight.

Feel less eye strain and fewer headaches

Exposure to blue light from the sun can cause eye strain and headaches. Quality prescription sunglasses block 100% of UV and solar blue light while spending time outdoors.

Experience improved dark adaptation

Sunglasses increase visual clarity by blocking UV rays and reducing glare during the day. In addition to the daytime benefits of wearing prescription sunglasses with polarized lenses, you may reduce night vision loss.

Enjoy a better, more comfortable outdoor experience, year-round

No need to squint or avoid the sun completely! Enjoy the comfort, visual clarity, and protection that comes from wearing prescription sunglasses.
