Prescription sunglasses offer guaranteed protection to keep your eyes healthy for years. It’s worth it to spend a little more to ensure your eyes are protected from the sun.
Talk to your optometrist about your need for sunglasses. For example, working outside for hours every day is different than water skiing regularly, but both activities require protection from the sun.
If you have a refractive error or other vision problems, your optometrist can include prescription adjustments in the lens, so you have a pair of sunglasses that keep your visual acuity good while also protecting your eyes.
