How To Protect Your Prescription Sunglasses


Prescription sunglasses seem like an unnecessary luxury until you hit the first day when you're driving east while the sun is coming up and your window protectors are not enough to dispel the glare of the sun. After that, your only choices are to suffer through the sun's glare -- which could be dangerous if you're driving -- get prescription glasses that allow you to add an extra layer of lens that can act as sun protection,  or switch to contacts so that you can wear regular glasses. Many people opt for prescription sunglasses so they don't have to deal with keeping track of the magnetic portion of their sunglasses or putting in contacts when they are going outside. Here are some ways to ensure that your prescription sunglasses last as long as possible.

1. Have a Case Specifically For Your Sunglasses Anywhere You Might Go Outside

First, you are going to want to make sure that you purchase a number of hard glasses cases that will be able to protect your glasses adequately. Once you have a few different glasses, you are going to want to place them anywhere you might go outside. Have a case hidden on your front porch, your patio, in the bag that you take with you to the beach, and in your bike's pouch. This will allow you to avoid any excuse that you might have for not keeping your prescription sunglasses in a case and decrease the chance that they will be broken. It will also provide you a place to put your regular glasses when you are wearing your sunglasses to ensure that your glasses are not broken.

2. Keep a Cleaning Cloth in Each Case

Next, you are going to want to make sure that you keep a cleaning cloth in each of the cases. This will allow you to safely remove smudges and grit without accidentally scratching your glasses and causing the need to replace them. Having one in every case that you have for your sunglasses always makes a safe way of cleaning your glasses accessible. 

3. Have Regular Sunglasses With You When You Go to the Beach

If you love to lie in the sun at the beach and try to get a tan, chances are good that you are going to need some sort of sun protection to do it comfortably. Don't tan in your prescription glasses. Instead, purchase a cheap pair of sunglasses and swap them for your glasses when you are tanning. This will allow you to fall asleep in the sun without worrying about hurting your prescription sunglasses.

Learning About Eye Exams

Hi there, I am Sophie Moye. I would like to help you learn what to expect during your yearly eye exam. Whether you have perfect vision or need corrective lenses, you must have an eye exam performed on a regular basis. The eye exam also identifies health problems that show symptoms through your eye condition. Furthermore, your eye doctor can create a vision baseline that can be used to gauge loss or improvement in the future. I hope to discuss the tools and techniques used to complete the eye exam. I will also discuss symptoms that eye doctors look for during the exams. My site will cover all of the health conditions that can be diagnosed using an eye exam. Thank you for your time.
