Prescription Sunglasses

Your eyeglasses or contact lenses may give you great vision indoors, but what about when you are outdoors. For that, you need prescription sunglasses. Just like we wear sunscreen to protect our skin, we need to rely on our sunglasses to act as the barrier between our eyes and the sun’s UV rays. That’s because, too much exposure has been linked to eye problems, including cataracts and macular degeneration. In fact, an estimated 20% of early premature cataract cases are caused by overexposure to UV rays.

However, you need not fear the outdoors, as long as you are equipped with the right pair of sunglasses! To protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet radiation, sunglasses should block 100 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays. While sunglasses are a great fashion accessory, their most important job is to protect your eyes. With this in mind, we offer some insight on the advantages of wearing prescription sunglasses.
