You might have prescription glasses, but unless they protect your eyes from UV rays, the sun could blind you. However, that does not mean you should never enjoy the cheerfulness of a bright, sunny day on the beach. Your sunglasses can offer you both the vision correction you need as well as protection from glare that could aggravate vision blur.

Benefits of Wearing Prescription Sunglasses

When you choose UV 400 prescription sunglasses, they can provide you protection from the entire ultraviolet spectrum, which extends up to 400 nanometers. This will stop you from damaging your natural eye lenses and will prevent cataracts.

In addition, you can safeguard your eyes from burns that could cause redness and irritation, and you can stop a retinal disease called macular degeneration. Wearing sunglasses also can prevent cancerous melanoma that could damage all skin including the eyelids.

Sunglasses can even protect you from too much exposure to other light sources such as brightness of your tablet, smartphone or computer. You might want to ask First Eye Car McKinney for additional prescription information for these purposes.

Characteristics of the Best Sunglasses

Our McKinney optometrists recommend protective eyewear that blocks 99-100 percent of UV-A and UV-B radiation. In addition, we urge you to choose glasses that keep 75-90 percent of visible light from your eyes. Gray lenses seem to be one of the best to help you recognize color, and we also advise you to choose lenses with no scratches or imperfections to avoid vision disruption.  

Choosing lens sizes that cover as much of your face as possible also helps, and side shields could protect your peripheral vision. In addition, we recommend polycarbonate or similar durable lens material for maximum impact resistance for wearing while working. What is more, polarized lenses can block reflective glare from water, snow, or asphalt any time of the year.
