Sunglasses Offered by our San Diego Optometrist

Many wear sunglasses in part to make a fashion statement. However, sunglasses are beneficial for the overall health of your eyes. If you wear eyeglasses, we recommend also getting a pair of prescription sunglasses. When you buy a pair of sunglasses in a drug store or department store, you may not be getting the full UV-protection benefits or you may be compromising your vision by not having prescription lenses. Here at Midway Optometry in San Diego, we offer prescription sunglasses in a variety of designs to help your eyes stay protected, while still staying fashion forward.

Sunglasses Keep Your Eyes Protected

Sunglasses protect against harmful UV rays and prevent several potential eye problems including:

  • Eye Sunburn - also known as Photokeratitis
  • Cataracts - UV light can accelerate cataract development
  • Macular Degeneration - UV rays increase the risk by damaging the retinas and central vision
  • Cancer of the Eyelids - including melanoma are more likely to develop with increased UV exposure

Protection from Glare

While many inexpensive sunglasses may claim to protect your eyes from glare, the only certain way to protect against glare is to have polarized prescription sunglasses. Those who participate in outdoor activities, such as water sports, biking, golfing, and jogging find themselves struggling during their performance because glare gets in their way, as it reflects off flat surfaces. Drivers also face similar challenges, in which case polarized prescription sunglasses are even more important.
