Enjoy the view: prescription sunglasses
People tend to reach for sunglasses primarily in summer, when the sun unleashes its full force. Sunglasses don’t just protect the eyes from UV-radiation and glare: they are also a cool fashion accessory that are an integral part of many people’s outfits. However, sunglasses also have their use in winter, as the eyes still require protection.
People who wear prescription glasses often feel that sunglasses aren’t really an option for them and so go without. Such thinking is a little too hasty. Prescription sunglasses are a perfect example of how to blend the fashionable with the practical.
The protective function of sunglasses
Sunglasses fulfil various functions. For one thing, they make it easier to see on sunny days and stop the sun from dazzling your eyes. The darker the lens, the better the protection from glare.
Tip: All sunglasses at Mister Spex have UV-400 protection.
What many people don’t realise is that sunglasses don’t just protect your eyes under a bright blue sky. The rays of the sun also penetrate into shaded areas. Nor should you underestimate reflections off water, sandy beaches or snow. The right lenses provide protection in all these situations.
Glazed sunglasses - the smart choice for glasses wearers
For glasses wearers, glazed sunglasses - also known as prescription sunglasses - represent a smart option. The big benefit is the combination of protection of the eyes and correction of your vision: the glasses help you see clearly in the sunshine while also protecting the eyes from glare and UV-rays.
Another advantage of sunglasses is for trips to the beach. Contact lens wearers sometimes have to struggle with wind and sand, which can cause dry, burning eyes. Sunglasses are a smart alternative in this case, as with the right size frame and lenses they can protect from both wind and grains of sand.
Likewise, contact lenses are best avoided while swimming. If water gets into the eyes, microorganisms can get under the lens surface and lead to dangerous infections. So for swimming that isn’t too intensive, prescription glasses also represent a good alternative. What’s more, they offer essential protection against the dazzling effect when sunlight reflects off the surface of the water.
