Prescription Sunglasses at Redding Eyecare

Sunglasses can be found almost everywhere, from the drug store to the grocery store, to high-end department stores. You can even order them online. But if you get your sunglasses from any of those places, you can’t be sure they are best suited to your eyes. In order to find the best sunglasses for you, your best bet is to head to your optometrist in Redding, CA, at Redding Eye Care Center.

Why Get Your Sunglasses From the Eye Doctor

Whether you have a history of vision problems or not, you can benefit from getting prescription sunglasses from your optometrist. Often sunglasses that you just pick up do not truly fit your face, or may not have the same level of protection as prescription sunglasses that are made according to your needs. When prescribing your lenses, your optometrist takes more into consideration than your prescription. At Redding Eyecare Center we look at your lifestyle as well. Do you do a lot of driving? Spend time on the golf course? Work on your computer in the back yard by the pool? Any of these nuances can be a game-changer when it comes to what you need from a pair of sunglasses.

If you do wear prescription eyeglasses, all the bells and whistles in your glasses can be manufactured into your prescription sunglasses, including things like progressive lenses or bifocals. You can have the same level of comfort with your sunglasses as you have with your regular glasses.

The Protection You Need and the Style You Want

One thing that a good pair of sunglasses has going for it is that they provide several types of protection for your eyes while being fashionable at the same time. Nowhere else is safety quite so cool.

Not only will your sunglasses block out harmful Ultraviolet A (UVA) and Ultraviolet B (UVB) rays, it also protects against blue light. UV rays have been known to contribute to eye health problems such as cataracts, and blue light can negatively hurt your vision and may increase your likelihood of developing macular degeneration later in life.

Wearing sunglasses can also help you look better even when you take your glasses off. The right pair will reduce squinting and keep you from developing wrinkles around your eyes before your time.
