On a clear day, it can get bright and sunny in Longmont, CO. If you wear glasses you might find that these sunny days cause problems when you go outside. You can avoid this by seeing our optometrist at Main Street Vision for help in obtaining prescription sunglasses. There are a few health benefits that come with prescription sunglasses.
Prescription sunglasses are simply more powerful versions of the glasses you wear inside. So you will find that when you are outside your vision is just as clear, if not even improved. Whether you are nearsighted or farsighted, prescription sunglasses can enhance your vision.
Slows Down Signs Of Aging
You can purchase prescription sunglasses that have built-in UV-protection. As a result, the skin around your eyes will be preserved, keeping you looking young and healthy. By wearing UV-protected sunglasses you can head off wrinkly skin that would have appeared otherwise. In most cases, you can choose the color of your lenses, so you have some control over the style of your prescription sunglasses. Those lenses will also reduce the glare that pavement, snow, water, and sand gives off.
Polarization And Protective Health Benefits
Some prescription sunglasses contain polarized lenses. These lenses make it easier to see clearly and comfortably. If your eyes are sensitive to light, polarized lenses will protect them. They are also ideal for anyone who has just had cataract surgery and can be safely worn both inside and outside.
Even if your sunglasses are bifocals you can still get lenses that are polarized. They can be purchased with a coating that prevents scratches and reflections from obstructing your vision.
