Advantages of Prescription Sunglasses

For many who rely on sunglasses, there is no alternative to prescription sunglasses.

In bright and uncomfortable conditions, using prescription sunglasses is not only more comfortable but safer. If you are driving, glare and sun sensitivity can put you at risk, as well as other drivers.

Additionally, if you love designer sunglasses, you don’t have to sacrifice style for functionality. Many luxury brands offer designer prescription sunglasses. You can get the right lenses for your favorite pair of high-fashion sunglasses.

Some people enjoy wearing contact lenses with nonprescription sunglasses over them but these will not be helpful if your lenses have become dry. They will also not be helpful if you are enjoying outdoor activities such as swimming in a pool or the beach.

Investing in a good pair of prescription sunglasses will enjoy your comfort on very bright days or while doing certain outdoor activities.

Adding a Prescription to Your Sunglasses

A great way to get prescription sunglass lenses is to combine your purchase with your designer sunglasses.

This way, you are guaranteed to get your favorite sunglass style, with your prescription lenses at the same time. If you have a pair of sunglasses that you love and you want lenses fitted for them, you’ll have to take them to an optical lab.

A full-service optical boutique will have all of the services you need on-site, including a lab to customize your shades.

With a prescription pair of sunglasses, you can be sure that your eyes are protected from direct sunlight and that they are suited to your individual style.

Types of Lenses

There are several types of lenses to choose from when customizing a pair of high-end sunglasses. Style is important but of course, you want to make sure that they are appropriate for your eye and your prescription.

Photochromic Lenses

These lenses gradually get darker when there is more sunlight present. They are referred to as transition lenses, and they are one of the most popular brands of this lens type.

These types of lenses are great if you:

  • Frequently drive at night
  • Enjoy the convenience of one pair of glasses for multiple uses
  • Have driving glasses
  • Your eyes are sensitive to light
  • You enjoy extra protection on your eyes

Try these stylish Matsuda sunglasses with a photochromic lenses. The Japanese design is the perfect blend of style and function.

Polarized Lenses

Polarized lenses reduce glare but they do not transition from light to dark. If you work or spend a lot of time outdoors doing high-glare activities polarized lenses are for you.

They are helpful when driving on a bright day by reducing glare from your windshield, the road, and other surrounding cars.

These classic Robert Marc sunglasses from their luxury men’s collection is ideal for a polarized lens.

Transitions Xtractive Lenses

These lenses are great for extreme conditions. They work even with the brightest sun and sweltering conditions.

Transitions Xtractive protect you from 100% of the sun’s harmful rays. They help protect your eye behind the wheel by darkening behind the windshield. Harsh indoor lights also don’t stand a chance with these lenses as they give a slight tint, intuitively adjusting even when you aren’t outside.

If you want ultimate protection and style, luxury sports sunglasses are durable and fashionable.
