Sunglasses Q & A

When should I wear sunglasses?

When you are outdoors, you should wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from damaging UV rays. Over time, UV exposure can cause macular degeneration, cataracts, or corneal sunburn. Sunglasses also help shield the delicate skin around your eyes from damage, helping protect you from skin cancer.

The good news is that damage from UV rays can be diminished. Something as simple as wearing quality sunglasses can help you avoid serious damage now and for the rest of your life.

What types of prescription sunglasses are available?

Simply Eyes offers a wide range of prescription sunglasses from all of the leading designers in fashion eyewear. The Simply Eyes team could customize your prescription for the majority of frames.

You could get single-vision, bifocal, or progressive lenses.  Frames that may not be suitable for prescription lenses require extra-large lenses that would distort vision. For example, large wrap-around shades might not work well for all prescriptions.

Should I get special sunglass lens materials or treatments?

Many patients find that a special lens type or lens treatment is a great choice for sunglasses, especially if you live an active lifestyle. You can choose polarized lenses that reduce glare, polycarbonate lenses for extra toughness, and scratch-resistant lenses.

You can even choose sunglasses that combine both your regular glasses and your sunglasses. Photochromic lenses automatically turn dark with exposure to UV rays, and then turn clear once you are indoors again. They could be quite convenient for anyone who does not want to keep up with two sets of glasses.

Let your Simply Eyes care providers know what your lifestyle is like so they can help you find the sunglasses that are best for you.

How often should I replace sunglasses?

It can vary by situation, but you should have your eye doctor check your sunglasses during your regular comprehensive eye exams at Simply Eyes.  You may not need new sunglasses for some time if your prescription is stable, but you may need new sunglasses once a year if you have frequent prescription changes.
