With prescription sunglasses, your eyes are better protected 

Protection from the elements is also important when you wear prescription sunglasses. Your prescription sunglasses will protect you from harmful UV rays, dust, and other airborne entities, even blue light from computer screens and phone screens. Wearing prescription sunglasses is the best way to not only ensure your vision is well supported but also to protect your eyes from harsh elements. Even basic activities, like reading a book in the sun without the glare, are improved by wearing prescription sunglasses. 

You can reduce the risk of future vision issues 

In addition to aiding your vision, wearing prescription sunglasses that offer a high level of protection against ultraviolet rays will also reduce the risk of cataracts, retinal damage, and skin cancer of the eyelids. If you are concerned about the long term effects of UV rays on your eyes, then wearing prescription sunglasses can put your mind at ease. 

At Mountain Eye Care, we can get you outfitted with prescription sunglasses that correct and protect your vision. If you are thinking about getting a pair for yourself, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at our vision care facility today.
