The Benefits of Prescription Sunglasses

The Benefits of Prescription Sunglasses

Sunglasses provide not only comfort on bright, sunny days, but also essential UV protection for your eyes. Many people are aware of what harmful UV rays can do to their skin, but don’t realize their eyes are at risk too. Proper sunglasses are as essential for an outing as sunscreen, even on an overcast day. Make sure any sunglasses you buy offer 100% UV protection. Mountain Eye Care can be your one stop shop for eye exams, prescription eyeglasses, and prescription sunglasses in Hamilton! We have a large selection of quality brands and styles and we are confident that you will be able to find a pair of prescription sunglasses in Hamilton that suit your style, your budget, and provide you with useful UV protection. Read on for more information about prescription sunglasses in Hamilton.

Frame and Lens Options:

Prescription sunglasses come in a huge variety of styles, from inexpensive casual frames to trendy, fashion and high-end designer sunglasses. For the frequent swimmers, there is even prescription swimming goggles. Lenses for prescription sunglasses in Hamilton are available in wide variety of materials and tints. Tint color and darkness is unrelated to UV protection, so even those light blue glasses you have your eye on can give you the 100% UV protection you need. Protect your eyes without sacrificing style and convenience at Mountain Eye Care!

UV and Glare Protection:

As with non-prescription sunglasses, your primary concern when buying prescription sunglasses in Hamilton is that the lenses block 100 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays. UV protection is unrelated to the color and density of the tint on sunglass lenses, so you can choose any lens color and darkness you like, as long as your optician verifies that the lenses provide 100 percent UV protection. For added glare protection from light bouncing back from reflective surfaces (like water, snow, sand and concrete pavement), prescription polarized sunglasses are also available at Mountain Eye Care!


Mountain Eye Care has a large variety of quality branded sunglass frames. Some of the brands that we carry include: Ray Ban, Fendi, Gucci, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Versace, Guess, Mexx, Liberty Sports, and much more!
