Those who wear prescription glasses can find it frustrating on very sunny days. They often have to choose between wearing sunglasses and losing some of their vision or keeping their glasses on and struggling to see through the glare of the sun.
Can prescription sunglasses be ordered online?
You can order prescription sunglasses online at Feel Good Contacts. No longer will you have to choose between seeing and your sunglasses when you’re out and about. Your eyes will be protected from harmful UV rays, all whilst delivering clear and precise vision with your prescription in the lens.
How do I get sunglasses with my prescription?
You can get sunglasses with your prescription by choosing a pair of glasses on our website and adding a tint coating at checkout. This will give the lenses a solid tint and effectively turn your glasses into prescription sunglasses.
How do I add a sun tint to my prescription sunglasses?
You can choose from the tint options available with us. All the tints provide 100% UVA and UVB protection and are available in different lens colours. Adding a tint allows you to enjoy a fashion element added to your prescription sunglasses with full functionality. Below are our tints options:
Full Tints – For bright environments, these full dark tints can help reduce eye strain and block 100% UVA and UVB light.
Gradient – Perfect for driving and reading, this tint option makes your lenses darker at the top and clear at the bottom. This is bliss for drivers and readers who find it difficult to drive/read when the sunlight is directly hitting their eyes. The top dark part will protect your eyes from the sun, while the clear part at the bottom will allow you to see things around you clearly. This tint option comes with 100% UVA/B protection.
Mirrored – This tint comes with 100% UVA/B protection and helps minimise the glare from reflective surfaces in bright conditions such as when going skiing. The mirrored surface also adds to a fashion factor, offering both fashion with functionality.
Polarised – Ideal for water sports such as surfing, fishing and golf. This tint option enhances contrast for clear and comfortable vision so that you can enjoy your sports or a day out fishing with your perfect pair of prescription sunglasses.
How much does it cost to get a prescription for sunglasses?
You can turn your prescription glasses into sunglasses for as little as £15 at Feel Good Contacts.
The overall cost of prescription sunglasses at Feel Good Contacts will depend on which frame and package you select.
We stock a huge range of designer frames from big brands like Ray-Ban, Le Specs and Polo Ralph Lauren. We also have our high-quality and affordable Feel Good Collection glasses, all available to be made into sunglasses.
It’s important to protect your eyes when you’re outside, but it’s also important to ensure you have clear vison at the same time. UV rays can penetrate the clouds even on overcast days, so carrying your prescription sunglasses with you at all times is essential to protect against UVA and UVB rays.
