Benefits:
There are many benefits of sunglasses, prescription or otherwise. It’s pretty difficult to enjoy a beautiful sunny day if it feels like your eyeballs are on fire. When you wear glasses this can be a problem because regular glasses don’t typically have the sun protection. That’s why prescription sunglasses are so beneficial. This is also true even if you wear contacts. When you’re at the beach or pool, contacts can get dry and itchy. Prescription sunglasses help you see and protect from the harmful UV rays.
 
Options:
Another great thing about prescription sunglasses is that the possibilities for frames and styles are really endless. Often, people associate prescription sunglasses with transition or magnetic lenses. Those are no longer the only options. You can even speak with your eye care center about fitting prescription lenses in your favorite frames. Many of your favorite designers now make prescription sunglasses so you’ll be trendy and practical all the same time.
