Summer in Florida = a must for sunglasses. The beach is calling your name, but so is the threat from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. Excess sun exposure puts you at risk for short and long term eye damage. Fortunately, prevention is easy when wearing the right sunglasses. 

When shopping for sunglasses, always look for a tag that says 100% protection against both UVA and UVB or 100% protection against UV 400. Here at Eye Center, Inc. ALL of our sunglasses fit these categories, and, you can customize your favorite style to fit your prescription.

Prescription sunglasses may not sound like high fashion, but many fashion brands carry sunglasses that can be fully customizable to your prescription. Prescription sunglasses are easy, stylish, and protect your precious vision. Here are a few reasons why you should get prescription sunglasses:

  1. One Solution- Prescription sunglasses protect your eyes against dust and microorganisms from entering your eyes, unlike contacts. And unlike regular eyeglasses, they protect against harmful ultraviolet rays, too. A win-win!
  2. No More Glare- Some eyes are more sensitive than others when it comes to the brightness of the sun. Prescription sunglass lenses neutralize glares, which occur when horizontal rays of the sun bounce back into your eyes from surfaces like beaches, roadways, sports fields, bodies of water, etc.
  3. Customizable- Prescription sunglasses are just as customizable as regular glasses, but especially when it comes to the shade. From light to hard, nearsighted or farsighted, Eye Center Inc. can create your perfect pair of prescription sunglass lenses!

Every day isn’t necessarily a contact lens day. Allergies, not enough rest, crying, etc. can play a huge role when you can’t get those little circles of freedom in your eyes. But that’s okay, your eyes need a break, too!
