Should You Wear Prescription Sunglasses? Yes – and Here’s Why

You might not think much about prescription sunglasses, but they’re a great addition to any wardrobe. Here is how they can help you preserve your eye health in all environments. OptiExpress provides comprehensive eye exams, contact lens fittings, a gallery of designer frames, and a one-hour onsite lab.

While many people who require corrective lenses also wear sunglasses, not all people who require corrective lenses wear prescription sunglasses. Prescription sunglasses are a great option for protecting your eyes from potentially harmful UV rays while helping you keep your vision strong and sharp.

Here are a few reasons why you should consider prescription sunglasses.

Prescription sunglasses are budget friendly.

One of the biggest concerns for people who are considering prescription sunglasses is the price, but modern prescription sunglasses are relatively low-cost – provided you purchase them at OptiExpress!

OptiExpress offers prescription sunglasses at deeply discounted rates from some of the most celebrated brands. Make sure to check the OptiExpress special discounts page for great deals on eyewear, exams, contact lenses, and more.

Prescription sunglasses are very convenient.

Prescription sunglasses are a great resource for outdoor environments where contact lenses aren’t practical. If you enjoy going to the beach, for example, prescription sunglasses correct your vision and protect you from the glare from the sand and water. Contact lenses, on the other hand, aren’t ideal in these circumstances, because sand and water exposure can be irritating and potentially harm contacts. Prescription sunglasses are a much better option.

Prescription sunglasses come in a huge variety of styles.

No matter which frame shape, material, or color you prefer, you can find prescription sunglasses in the style of your choice. Additionally, you can find polarized lenses that help reduce glare while driving.

You can have sunglasses in any prescription.

No matter what outdoor activity you participate in, you can find prescription sunglasses that help your maintain clear vision. These include reading glasses, progressive lenses, distance correction, and more.

OptiExpress offers prescription sunglasses as well as transition lenses, another fantastic UV protection option that can be worn in both indoor and outdoor conditions.
