No longer to prescription eye glass wearers need to worry
on those sunny days when your regular lenses just don’t
help. Or maybe you wear contacts and they are just
bothering you too much to keep them in while you lay out at
the beach enjoying the sun, sand and surf.
Now you can get prescription sunglasses in almost any style
and for almost any prescription.
From Gucci to Pravda, almost every fashion designer that
has a line of regular prescription eyeglasses also has
available fashionable sunglasses for the public.
Now you don’t need to worry about searching for those tacky
clip-on shades for your sunglasses or dealing with contact
lenses when they bother your eyes.
Prescription sunglasses have become readily available at
your local optometrist’s office. Prescriptions range
anywhere from basic to high prescriptions, bifocals and
progressive lenses for the prebyoptic consumer.
There are even lines of children’s sunglasses for the kids
in your life who wear prescription lenses.
The styles of prescription sunglasses available are pretty
much the same as basic sunglasses. One exception is the
wrap around glasses.
Prescription lenses that curve typically distort vision,
but Oakley makes a wraparound style that does accept
prescription lenses. And lenses that hold a slightly curved
wrap are available.
For people who don’t want to bother with prescription
sunglasses, there are now lenses called photo chromatic
These are an amazing innovation, your regular lenses are
coated with a material that darkens in the sunlight and
return to normal when indoors.
