Choosing the Right Prescription Sunglasses: Protect Your Eyes from the Sun

Choosing the Right Prescription Sunglasses: Protect Your Eyes from the Sun

Sunglasses are a great way to look stylish, feel great, and protect your eyes. For those that are in the Wichita, KS area, Wichita Optometry is a great option if you are looking for an eye doctor near me.

Why are Sunglasses Important?

UV rays from the sun damage the eyes and can cause a loss of vision over time. UV rays are also responsible for eye diseases like cataracts. It is easy to forget that your eyes are constantly exposed to UV rays when outside and susceptible to damage from them.

Choosing the Right Sunglasses

Since sunglasses are so important, it is a good idea to take the time to find sunglasses that suit you. If you rely on prescription eyeglasses to see, you need a pair of prescription sunglasses so that you can see while protecting your eyes when outside. The first step is to choose a frame that can handle your prescription. Patients with stronger prescriptions need to select a frame that can reliably hold a dense lens.

Bifocal lenses also need a large lens space. If you live a particularly active lifestyle, look at frames designed for athletic activity. These will be especially durable and lightweight. If you are fashion conscious, choose stylish frames that mesh with your personal style. The right pair of sunglasses ensure your eyes age healthily, and that your eyes are protected from the harmful effects of the sun.
