Are Prescription Sunglasses Worth It?

Ever wondered if prescription sunglasses were worth it? Or, how about if they are right for you? What are the pros and cons of prescription sunglasses? It's questions like these that many sunglass wearers ponder. We're gonna break it down to help you decide if our prescription sunglasses are the perfect choice for your eyes.

 

Protecting Your Precious Eyes

Island Optics Prescription Sunglasses offer a two-fold benefit: crystal-clear vision and UV protection; a must, especially during sun-soaked summers. All of our lenses feature UV400 making them a true superhero that blocks out 100% of harmful UV rays.

Remember, sun protection isn't just for sunny days. Even when the sky's overcast, UV rays can wreak havoc on your eyes. Up to 80% of the sun's rays can sneak through clouds, unbeknownst to us. But with prescription sunglasses, you're safe from not just UV rays but also from pesky debris like sand and dust.

"I'm good with my contacts and regular sunglasses." Contacts are fantastic, but they're not water sports' best friend. Losing them while swimming or getting water under your lenses could lead to eye infections and just an overall uncomfortable experience.

Beyond UV protection and clear vision on sunny days, here's why our prescription sunglasses are the real deal:

  • No More Double Stacking: You won't need to sandwich regular sunglasses over your eyeglasses with this all-in-one solution.
  • Say Goodbye to Clip-Ons: Clip-on sunglasses are beyond old-school. They can be clunky and easy to misplace.
  • Polarized Lens Upgrade: We offer prescription lenses with our Polarized OX2 lens technology. Upgrade your lens, reduce your glare, and enjoy your activities.
  • Hi Index Lens Upgrade: If your prescription is up over a +/-4.00, this upgrade can shed some weight and thickness from the lens.
  • Contact Lens Break: With prescription sunglasses, you can give your contact lenses a well-deserved break. Enjoy the sun, clouds, and clear vision without a second thought.

 

Style and Cost

Our prescription sunglasses come in a variety of Island Optics styles to suit your taste. From classic frames to performance eyewear for outdoor enthusiasts, there's a perfect fit for everyone. And don't forget the lens upgrades, like progressive lenses for presbyopia, hi index providing a slimmer and lighter lens, and polarized lenses for seeing life more vibrantly.

The beauty is the cost, starting at roughly $140, is less than most mainstream designer frames and the long-term benefits are worth every penny.
