What To Look For In Prescription Sunglasses
Sunglasses protect our eyes against ultraviolet (UV) light. Our eyes are surrounded by the retina which is very thin and has very fine bones called the choroid. The UV light that enters the eye is transformed by the cornea into heat or light that we cannot see. Since UV light can cause long-term damage to the cells in the eye, we must shield our eyes from it. A common type of this protection is provided by sunglasses.
Sunglasses provide a way to make our vision more effective
but if we do not wear them properly, we might miss our goals. We should always remember that prescription glasses cannot be used to replace your good old pair of prescription glasses. So if you want to keep your pair of prescription glasses, you have to use them properly. A well-maintained pair of sunglasses even can substitute your glasses.
Sunglasses with transitions
as the name suggests, these change their color when you change your prescription. One day you may want to go for a blue-colored contact lens, the next, you may want to go for a red one. There are various types of transition lenses, and you can choose anyone you like. Usually, the change is small, so you do not have to worry about being caught unawares when you suddenly change your eye color. And the transition lenses are disposable, so there’s nothing to bother with either.
Sunglasses with UV protection
these provide UV protection for our faces and eyes when we are outdoors. The UV protection provided by these kinds of sunglasses means they are ideal when you are working outside during bright days or when you tend to spend a lot of time outdoors during bright days. When it is sunny outside, you cannot just leave your computer or your video game console on the table in front of you because you will expose them to the sun’s powerful rays which can be very harmful. In that case, you may want to buy sunglasses with UV protection, and they may even come with built-in filters to filter the ultra-violet rays before they reach your eyes. Some even have adjustable features so that you can choose the kind of UV filter that suits your needs best.
Prescription sunglasses – in this category
there are two kinds: general prescription sunglasses and bifocal or trifocal lenses. General prescription lenses can be used for general purposes such as reading and writing, and certain activities such as sports. However, bifocal or trifocal lenses can be used for many different tasks at once and as a result, a lot of people prefer them. In addition, many people find general lenses to be a bit pricy.
Whether you are buying prescription sunglasses
or any other type of eyewear, you must take care of them properly so that you will be able to get the most out of them. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you invest in a pair of sunglass clear lenses. Clear lenses ensure that the Ultraviolet or UV rays do not harm your eyes. They also give you high-quality vision and do not fog up the view like some ordinary sunglasses can do. If you have not tried them yet, you owe it to yourself to try them out and see just how effective they are.
