It’s no secret that protecting your eyes from the sun is a must every day, especially in summer. But for many eyeglass wearers, this isn’t simply done. While they may want to use sunglasses when going out, they also need to use corrective eyeglasses at the same time. So, do they just use sunglasses and risk bumping into things a lot? Or do they stick with the eyeglasses and just let the sun’s rays affect them?
Fortunately, EyeRx has the perfect solutions for this dilemma: photochromic lenses and prescription sunglass frames. Here’s what you should know about each option:
Photochromic lenses are light-adaptive lenses. Their technology allows them to adapt to the amount of sun to which they are exposed. In particular, the lenses turn dark when you step outdoors in the sun, and then turn clear when your indoors. This can be very convenient for those whose daily activities typically involve going in and out of doors.
Your eye doctor can upgrade your photochromic lenses with your specific lens prescription. Basically, you’ll have a two-in-one eyewear that serves as both your corrective eyeglasses and sunglasses. You’ll be purchasing one pair of glasses just for the price of one. And you won’t have to worry about not having either your eyeglasses or sunglasses whenever you’re heading out.
On the other hand, prescription sunglasses look like your regular sunglasses. The lenses come in different tints, colors, depths or gradients. They are also engineered with premier ultraviolet protection. The only difference is that they are also customized with your specific lens prescription. Not only are prescription sunglasses fashion-forward, they ensure your sharp eyesight too.
After your eye exams and your optometrist has measured your appropriate lens power, we’ll then help you find the perfect frames for your prescription sunglasses. We offer a variety of styles and designs that can suit your needs, preferences and lifestyle. Prescription sunglasses are best for those who are outdoors most of the time and have active lifestyles.
