Should I Get Prescription Sunglasses?

Prescription sunglasses are designed with specially made lenses. These lenses can be designed to provide vision correction, such as for someone with nearsightedness or farsightedness. This allows you to wear one pair of sunglasses for vision correction and sun protection. Plus, thanks to the latest optical technology we can provide you with the type of lens you want in your sunglasses.

What are the Different Types of Lenses in Prescription Sunglasses?

If you have bifocal, multifocal, or progressive lenses you can get your prescription sunglasses fitted for your vision correction needs. We also work with specific types of lenses made for sunglasses. This includes Transition lenses that fade from dark to light whenever you enter and exit a sunny environment. Polarized lenses that provide UV protection are also available here at Sevigny Associates Eye Care. 

Why Should I Consider UV Sunglasses?

The sun’s rays give off ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is detrimental to our eyes. UV rays can damage your pupil and cause sunburns to the cornea in a condition called photokeratitis. Fortunately, by wearing 100 percent UV blocking sunglasses you can protect your eyes from UV damage. Keep in mind you are exposed to UV rays even in the winter months when snow reflects sunlight.
