The Prescription Sunglasses Guide

If you’re looking for a way to maintain your vision on bright sunny days, prescription sunglasses are a great choice. Read this quick and easy guide about how to shop for prescription sunglass lenses here. 


If you wear prescription glasses or prescription contact lenses, you may have often struggled on sunny days outside - you can see everything clearly and crisply, but it’s just too bright. If you switch your regular glasses for sunglasses, there’s no glare any more - but now, everything’s blurry. Prescription sunglasses offer the best of both worlds - enabling you to enjoy optimum vision no matter the weather conditions.  


Wondering why you should wear prescription sunglasses versus non-prescription sunglasses if you’re a glasses wearer? If you wear prescription glasses, you should invest in prescription sunglasses for: 


  1. UV Protection. When wearing prescription sunglasses (or any sunglasses for that matter), you need to consider your eye health. Your eyes are very delicate, and UV radiation can be harmful. By wearing prescription sunglasses, you reduce the risk of UV damage to your eyes.

  2. Clear Vision on Bright Days. Whether you are nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, anisometropia or presbyopia, prescription sunglasses can correct and enhance your vision when you come into contact with sunlight or glare. Because these sunglasses have custom prescription lenses, you’ll be able to choose what kind of tint suits your lifestyle as well as what kind of prescription - like mirrored prescription sunglasses, for example.

  3. Glare Protection. Glare can be a major problem for people who spend extended periods of time outside - cycling or fishing, for example. There is a solution, though. Polarised prescription sunglasses neutralize blinding glare, which occurs when the horizontal rays of light bounce back into your eyes from surfaces including roads, bodies of water, beaches and snow. When your prescription lenses are polarised, you’ll be able to see more clearly in high-glare settings. That means better days on the beach, behind the wheel and enjoying your favorite outdoor activity.If you’re an avid cyclist or enjoy fishing, you should definitely consider wearing cycling prescription sunglasses or fishing prescription sunglasses.

  4. Limitless Lens Options. Prescription sunglasses are available in a wide variety of lens materials and tints, including lightweight polycarbonate, high-index plastic and glass. While glasses lenses provide the best optical quality, they can shatter easily. Polycarbonate or plastic lenses are far more shock-resistant. You can also buy photochromic sunglasses, which are specially made to darken upon exposure to sunlight.

How to Get Prescription Sunglasses and Where to Buy Prescription Sunglasses Online


Wondering how to buy prescription sunglasses online? If you don’t have a prescription, you can visit an optician and take an eye test. From there, you’ll be able to purchase sunglasses with custom prescription lenses - we suggest checking out our range of cheap prescription sunglasses and designer prescription sunglasses online here.

If you already have glasses but do not know the prescription, use our online lens scanner tool. This will enable you to check your glasses prescription without having to book another eye test.
