In this article by Mountain Eye Care, we share some information about what you should consider when buying prescription sunglasses.
Consider the style you are going for
One of the major things that you should consider when buying prescription sunglasses is the style you want. At Mountain Eye Care, we have a massive selection of sunglasses in various styles to choose from. When choosing a style of sunglasses, look for lenses that are a bit more versatile, that way they can last you for years to come. For instance, aviator lenses are extremely popular and have been for years, so you can rest assured they aren’t going out of style anytime soon.
Consider the material of the sunglasses
Depending on your prescription, you may require thicker lenses than other people. If you do have a strong prescription, you may want to consider high-index lenses. High-index lenses will give you a high prescription without bulky lenses. Most people like polycarbonate lenses because they are made of impact-resistant plastic which makes them hard to shatter or crack.
Consider the cost
The final thing to consider is the cost and what you want to spend on your prescription sunglasses. Additionally, if you have health coverage, maybe your prescription sunglasses will cost you nothing out of pocket. It is important to understand your health coverage and if you may or may not be covered for prescription sunglasses.
