The top reason why people wear sunglasses is to protect their eyes from UV rays. Just like the sun’s UV rays can be dangerous to the skin it can be to the eyes if you expose your eyes to too much. To protect your eyes is easy because all you have to do is wear sunglasses that block both the UVB and UVA radiation. Ultraviolet rays from the sun are also known to cause cataracts, macular degeneration, and pterygium.  There are some skin cancers that are found on the eyelids from excessive exposure to UV rays. Wearing glasses that block out the rays can protect you from cancer.

Sunglasses are also worn to promote healing and recovery after going through LASIK or PRK surgery to correct vision. Glasses can protect your eyes as they heal. They can also offer protection from elements such as sand, snow, and dust.

Prescription Sunglasses

Prescription sunglasses are simply a combination of both sunglasses and eyeglasses. They offer protection for your eyes while providing the wearer with clear vision. During the summer, there is no need to keep switching back and forth between your glasses. With prescription sunglasses, you no longer have to wear your sunglasses over eyeglasses.

Benefits of Wearing Prescription Sunglasses

The top benefit of wearing prescription glasses is that they improve your vision. During summer, it is beneficial to wear prescription sunglasses as you drive because they reduce glare and prevent plenty of accidents. If you love outdoor sports wearing prescription sunglasses not only protect your eyes and give you proper vision, they also improve performance. Prescription sunglasses are now available in almost all vision prescriptions, and you will find the right pair for you.

One benefit of the prescription glasses is that you no longer have to carry around two pairs of glasses offering you great convenience. You also don't have to worry about prescription glasses cramping your style; they are available in numerous lenses and frames. You can find a stylish frame that best suits your face.
