Sunglasses

Where You Buy Your Sunglasses Matters

While it’s a good idea to visit an eye doctor routinely, it’s also a good idea to take any preventative measures you can to protect your eyes. Preventative eye care includes wearing sunglasses to avoid damage from ultraviolet (UV) rays, reducing glare, and lowering blue light exposure. Prescription sunglasses are part of the quality eye care available here at Lifetime Eyecare Solutions. We are the preferred choice for an optometrist in Tulsa & Oklahoma City.

Sunglasses with a UV Filter

Ultraviolet light is part of natural sunlight and may come from other light sources. This light is invisible to our eyes and can cause serious damage after prolonged exposure, leading to the development of eye diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration. Fortunately, sunglasses which filter out UV rays have been created to combat the damage this light can do to our eyes.

Sunglasses with Polarization

Glare is a strong reflection of light, which comes from surfaces that reflect light in a horizontal direction. Glare can be reduced significantly by a polarization filter that has a dark tint and gird pattern. The grid blocks horizontal light and only allows vertical light to get through the lens.

Sunglasses with a Blue Light Filter

Blue light, also known as high energy visible light, can also cause damage to our eyes over time. Blue light filtering glasses are available which block some or all blue light. As digital screen are notorious for emitting large quantities of blue light, these glasses are very helpful for those who stare at a computer screen all day or those who use a smartphone all the time.

Transition Sunglasses

There are prescription glasses with photochromic lenses that automatically change their tint in response to increased levels of light. They are extremely convenient for glasses wears who continuously travel inside and outside on a regular basis.

What Sunglasses Are the Best?

The best choice depends on each person’s individual lifestyle. Most people like to have more than one pair to use for different purposes. All of these sunglasses options can be made as prescription lenses to correct vision.
