Choosing the Best Lens Options for Prescription Sunglasses

Sunglasses are more than just a fashion accessory - prescription lenses provide critical eye protection from damaging UV rays. To maximize sunny day comfort and vision safety, consider these popular lens material and feature upgrades tailored specifically for sunglasses wear:

Polarized Lenses - Filtering side glare and enhancing color vibrancy, polarized lenses are a top choice. They block up to 99.9% of reflective light.

Transition Lenses - Special photochromic lenses automatically darken in UV light exposure and clear indoors for an all-in-one solution.

Anti-Reflective Coating - Minimizing annoying surface reflections optimizes visibility, especially useful behind windshields or on water.

Tinted Lenses - Various tints from light bronze to dark gray filter sun intensity based on environment and personal preferences.

UV Protection - 100% UV blocking is essential for all outdoor activity. Even slightly tinted “computer” lenses still transmit UV harming longterm sight.

Scratch-Resistant Coating - An added durability layer on polycarbonate or plastic frames helps lenses last through active lifestyles.

Blue Light Blocking - Special treatments shield eyes from digital device blue wavelengths that can cause eyestrain over time.

Readers - Prescription readers seamlessly incorporated can allow clear close-up vision too for some multifocal wearers.

When upgrading sunglass lenses, prioritize comprehensive UV coverage and specialized materials engineered to perform best in bright light. Your optician can match the ideal upgrade combination tailored for your lifestyle needs and prescription details. Proactively protecting vision means enjoying clearer sight for outdoor activities and years to come.
