Protect Your Eyes from the Sun
At Advanced Optical in Orlando, we know that prescription sunglasses can protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays. That’s why we provide a wide selection of sunglasses for men, women, and children in Orlando, FL, including prescription sunglasses. If you’re unsure which type of sunglasses are right for you, our optometrist can help you find the perfect pair of prescription sunglasses to protect your eyes. Here are some factors to consider.
Prescription sunglasses are an essential tool for protecting your eyes from the sun. Ultraviolet radiation from the sun can cause cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, and pinguecula. Wearing prescription sunglasses with the proper UV protection level can reduce your risk of these problems. When choosing prescription sunglasses, look for a pair that offers close to 100% UV protection.
The lenses in prescription sunglasses are treated with chemicals that block UV rays, and the frames are designed to keep the lenses in place to do their job. However, if the sunglasses don’t fit well, the UV-blocking chemicals may not be appropriately aligned with your eyes, leaving them vulnerable to sun damage.
In addition, loose-fitting sunglasses can allow harmful rays to enter through the sides of the lenses, potentially causing eye fatigue or pain. Ensure your prescription sunglasses provide optimal protection. Choosing a pair that fits snugly and is comfortable to wear is essential.
You want your prescription sunglasses to look good! When choosing a pair of sunglasses, select the style you prefer. For example, do you want a sporty pair of sunglasses to wear while working out or a classic style worn with any outfit? Your style preferences will help narrow your choices and make it easier to find the perfect pair of prescription sunglasses.
