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

Prescription glasses are not limited to just clear, traditional eyeglasses. They can also be provided as sunglasses. Even better, there are models with the capability to adjust from outdoor to indoor and back again as needed. The convenience of today's sunglasses is pretty amazing, given that much of the technology has only been around for a decade. At Fountain Valley Optometry, we can help you find the perfect pair of prescription sunglasses.

The Need for Sunglasses is Real

Thanks to changes in the ozone layer around the planet, today's sunlight is a lot stronger than it was maybe just 20 or 30 years ago. Not only is sun protection a must, but eye protection from the sun is also a real issue. However, finding prescription sunglasses has been a challenge, even with help from an eye doctor.

Like people with regular vision, going out in the bright sunlight is hard to see in without needing some kind of block from the glare. For years, those needing eyeglasses had to carry two pairs: one for indoors and one for outside in the sun. Once the combined technology became possible, the convenience of eyeglasses that work in all environments became accessible.

Optometrist teams today are able to fit sunglasses to all types of eye conditions, making it possible for patients to enjoy UV protection, shade, and easy vision under the toughest sun glare in the hottest part of summer.
