From a timeless aviator look to the sophistication of new designer styles, sunglasses are as common in outdoor settings as seashells on a beach. These days, the debate among sunglass wearers focuses on protection versus style. As much as sunglasses make a fashion statement, they serve more importantly as an important device to protect your eye’s health from damaging UV rays.

  1. Plano sunglasses. “Plano” is the term used to describe lenses that contain no power for the correction of refractive errors or presbyopia. You don’t need a prescription to buy plano sunglasses and you can find them in a variety of frame materials, including plastic and metals such as titanium, aluminum and stainless steel. Plano sunglasses are a good choice for anyone who has naturally good vision without corrective lenses and for contact lens wearers. Also, clip-on plano sunglasses can convert prescription eyeglasses into prescription sunglasses.
  2. Designer sunglasses. These styles, often branded with popular names such as Armani, are generally sold in optical boutiques or department stores and tend to mimic current fashion trends.
  3. Prescription sunglasses. Ideal for prescription eyeglass wearers, these eliminate the need for clip-on sunglasses. Prescription sunglasses are available anywhere prescription eyeglasses are sold.
  4. Kids’ sunglasses. Because you never know what kids might be doing, sunglasses for children should always include impact-resistant polycarbonate or Trivex lenses for added protection.

RECYCLING EYEGLASSES

Never discard your old eyeglasses! Needy people can use your old eyewear, whether it’s reading glasses, sunglasses or prescription eyeglasses.

Very important: Always make sure you discuss and make decisions about your eye care based upon a formal appointment with your optician.
