To many of our clients at Maplewood Vision Care, prescription sunglasses are just as important as regular eyeglasses, in addition to being an everyday accessory. When you find out that your eyeglass prescription has changed, or you simply want a new, trendier pair of sunglasses, our South Orange optical store is well-stocked for you. Whether used for driving, shopping, or a walk along the beach, we know you want your sunglasses to look casual, dressy, and professional as needed. Durability is a much needed consideration since sunglasses go through a lot of wear and tear from your day to day activities.
There are a variety of lenses available for prescription sunglasses at our South Orange optical store, including polycarbonate, trivex, high-index, regular plastic, and also glass materials. Always a popular choice, lenses with photochromic tint automatically change their color according to the intensity of light. Prescription sunglasses can also work for people who have vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Our knowledgeable opticians at Maplewood Vision Care recommend eye protection whenever you are in the sun to protect your eyes from ultraviolet radiation (UV), which can cause many serious eye conditions. Sunglasses are a form of protective eyewear designed mainly to prevent bright sunlight from damaging or disturbing your eyes. They can also function as a visual aid since your prescription lenses can be colored, polarized or darkened. All these benefits are available in designer sunglasses and almost all prescription and non-prescription sunglass lenses can be put into designer frames.
Sunglasses serve other important purposes besides looking “cool” and blocking out the sun’s harmful rays. When you wear sunglasses while participating in sports activities, there are definitely certain sunglasses designed for certain sports. At our South Orange optical store, you can find some of your favorite designer sunglasses, designed to be worn while playing your favorite sport. Good eye health should always be a main concern before choosing any eye wear and at Maplewood Vision Care, you can see clearly, and be protected, while wearing your favorite frame.
