Protecting your eyes from the sun is important, but what are glasses wearers to do? That’s where prescription sunglasses can be incredibly useful. You have the benefit of being shaded from the sun, and enjoy 100% UV protection, all whilst giving you clear vision. Here at Feel Good Contacts, we want you to have the best of both worlds.
Order prescription sunglasses for clear vision and sun protection
Why do you need prescription sunglasses? Here are just some of the many benefits to owning a pair.
Protects your eyes from UV damage
One of the most important reasons to start wearing prescription sunglasses is to protect your eyes. Too much exposure to UV light over the time can damage your cornea, potentially leading to cataracts, eye cancer and even reduced vision.
Provides comfortable vision for those with light sensitivity
If your eyes are extra sensitive to light, then prescription sunglasses are the perfect option for you. To further reduce uncomfortable glare from the sun, you can opt for a model that has polarised lenses, which will provide more comfortable vision when outdoors.
Great for holidays
Tinted lenses with your prescription built in are excellent for sunny trips abroad or summer staycations. The convenience of having perfectly clear vision, all whilst knowing that your eyes are protected from the sun, cannot be overstated. Especially for those that are spending time on the beach or skiing, sun protection is vital in helping you to avoid snow blindness (sunburn of the cornea), a condition that occurs when exposed to UV light that has reflected off the surface of water or snow.
How to order sunglasses with prescription
Ordering prescription sunglasses with us is simple. Choose your preferred glasses frame, add to basket and then checkout. Once you have chosen what you’ll use your glasses for and entered your prescription (you can select the ‘send later’ option if you don’t have it to hand), you can then choose your lens tint option.
You can choose from:
Light adaptive: these lenses will remain clear and darken outdoors, a great multi-tasking accessory
Full tint: solid tinted lenses that don’t react to light
Gradient: fixed tint, these lenses are dark at the top and clear at the bottom, perfect for driving
Polarised: great choice of lenses for preventing uncomfortable glare from the sun
Many frames to choose from
Stylish eyewear is affordable at Feel Good Contacts. Our fashionable frames come in a wide range of styles and colours. You’ll find the classic silhouettes like the wayfarer, aviator and square, as well as more modern shapes such as the hexagonal. Whether your personal style is classic or quirky, you’ll find a stunning frame in our collection to suit you.
Elevate your look with this modern take on the rectangular frame shape. FGC Eddie C1 Brown has semi-transparent frame and angular look will suit tinted lenses. Why not choose gradient lenses to add further style?
Wear this elegant Prada frame with stand-out tortoise print and an angular cat eye shape. Add light adaptive lenses at the checkout to add sun protection.
Multiple lens options
You don’t have to choose a full tint on your prescription sunglasses, why not choose photochromic lenses? Transitions and photochromic lenses allow the lenses of your glasses to remain clear when indoors and darken when outdoors. This gives glasses wearers the flexibility of seeing clearly and comfortably, no matter where they are and what the lighting conditions are.
Your choice of lens colours
You can customise your prescription sunglasses with your choice of lens colour to create the perfect pair. From classic green to a more adventurous purple, there are many colours to choose from. Grey is possibly the most versatile lens colour, as it complements the widest variety of frame colours and is suitable for most of the outdoor activities. All the full tint colour options provide 100% UVA and UVB protection.
If you’re not sure which lens colour to choose, don’t hesitate to get in contact with us. We’ll be happy to recommend a lens colour to suit your frame choice and lifestyle.
