3 Major Benefits of Prescription Sunglasses

Summer and warm weather means sunglasses. They are more than just a fashion accessory too. Sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. That being said, they can still look great! Also, sunglasses aren’t just reserved for those with contacts or no need for corrective lenses. Prescription sunglasses might not sound like high fashion, but really many fashion brands carry frames you can use with your prescription. Think Ray Ban, Gucci, Maui Jim, and more! Read on to learn about the benefits of prescription sunglasses.

1. It’s One Solution

Unlike contacts, they can help against dust, and microorganisms getting into your eyes. Unlike eyeglasses, they protect again harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. And on top of it all, your prescription is already in the lenses. Sunglasses literally are a one-stop solution for protecting your eyes. This isn’t just for summer either. Sunshine happens all the time, even in cold months. So having sunglasses can protect you all year long. Stop squinting in the sun because you forgot to wear contacts. You can also customize your lenses to be different colors, varied darkness, and polarized. And you can see? What’s not to love…

They are made for you. Your style, your lenses, your frames. Prescription sunglasses not only allow you to see but see in style. Pick frames that match your personality and preference. Also, pick ones that accentuate the shape of your face. There are also sports lenses available. Be active, stylish, and protect your eyes! Not to mention, prescription sunglasses are affordable. They are a great investment to protect your eyes and don’t have to break the bank.

3. It’s Ultimate Protection

Talking about investments, let’s talk eye health again. Seriously, UV radiation is no joke. And it’s not just your eyes, but the skin around your eyes. It is especially susceptible to the elements. In fact, it is often the first area to show signs of aging. UV exposure can also lead to cataracts, macular degeneration, photokeratitis (think sunburn of your eyes) and skin cancer around your eyes. However, with prescription sunglasses, you can protect your eyes and skin while looking great.
