Prescription Sunglasses

The Importance of Prescription Sunglasses

If you wear glasses, you may have wished you had a pair of sunglasses that offer the same quality vision correction. At Kasson Eye Care you can purchase prescription sunglasses which are essentially a second pair of your prescription glasses in sunglasses form. Your prescription is created right into the lenses of your sunglasses. They will protect your eyes from the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun and the sun’s glare so that you can see clearly.


What Can Prescription Sunglasses Offer?

Nearly all corrective eyeglass prescriptions can be obtained in a sunglasses version, including prescriptions for bifocals and progressive lenses. You can enjoy the convenience and safety of clear vision while shading your eyes from the bright rays of the sun. Whether you do a lot of driving or spend a lot of time outdoors, a pair of prescription sunglasses will keep your eyes safer while allowing you to have fun in the sun without any hassles.

Prescription sunglasses block out ultraviolet and blue light, both of which can adversely affect your eyesight and cause eye fatigue. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, the excessive UV light exposure can lead to diseases in your eyes, such as macular degeneration which is a leading cause of vision loss in adults. It can also cause cataracts that cloud the lens of your eyes, making it hard for you to see clearly.

Where Do I Get A Pair of Prescription Sunglasses?

To order a pair of prescription sunglasses, it is best to make an appointment with a trusted optometrist or optician, such as Dr. Leska at our office. She will meet with you and explain the types of lenses that are available to choose from and check to make sure your prescription is up-to-date before ordering.

If you wear bifocals, your sunglasses will be ordered to accommodate that prescription. If you need photochromic lenses, those can be ordered as well. Photochromic lenses will darken when you are exposed to ultraviolet rays from the sun. There is an option for this type of lens that will clip on to our regular eyeglasses as well.

You can also choose the frames for your prescription sunglasses which need to be high-quality to hold your lenses properly and securely. Prescription sunglasses allow you to protect your precious eyesight while being fashionable and in-style.
