Choosing the Right Prescription Sunglasses

Richardson Eye Associates in Richardson, TX Discusses Prescription Sunglasses

Sunglasses protect the eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays (UV) when you are outside during the day or even driving in your vehicle. They can also provide other benefits like decreasing dry-eye problems, reducing glare that can limit vision and less squinting and eye strain. If you wear regular eyeglasses throughout the day, prescription sunglasses may be the answer to keep you protected. To learn more about the available options from our optometry office, contact Richardson Eye Associates in Richardson, TX at (972) 961-7818 to schedule an appointment.

Understanding Prescription Sunglasses

Prescription sunglasses are just like traditional prescription glasses but are made with tinted lenses. They come in a variety of styles, colors, and sizes to suit your personal tastes. Generally, the same designers that craft regular prescription glasses make prescription sunglasses. They are available for virtually any lens prescription, including bifocals and progressive lenses.

Benefits of Prescription Sunglasses

Aside from safeguarding from the harmful effects of the sun’s rays, prescription sunglasses offer a variety of additional benefits. They help enhance your vision, whether you are running, watching sporting events or sightseeing and they look good on. Wearing sunglasses also helps prevent the signs of aging. The skin around the eyes is vulnerable to the effects of the sun since it’s very thin. Sunglasses, especially those with wrap-around or oversized lenses keep the skin around the eyes covered, which can reduce wrinkles and the appearance of sunspots.
