Spring officially kicked off six lovely days ago on March 20, 2018, at 12:16 p.m. in the Northern Hemisphere. Yes, we were so excited for burgeoning little flowers and warmer days that we counted it down to the minute. We've had our fill of hibernating in the perfect hygge space and binging on Netflix; we're ready to bid the gray days of winter adieu and spend some time outside.
As that glowing ball in the sky starts making longer daily appearances, the need to protect your eyes increases. Luckily, there are lots of options that range in price to suit any budget or lifestyle.
- Prescription Sunglasses: Nearsighted or far, prescription sunglasses are like a blessing from the optical gods. Anyone who wears prescription eyeglasses knows the pain of attempting to read poolside with regular glasses or trying to drive when the sun is high in the sky.. We make it easy and affordable to get the prescription you need in the sunglasses you want (even polarized!), so you never squint your way through the farmers market and mistake onions for apples ever again.
- Transitions® Signature® Lenses: These are the miraculous lenses that adapt to changing light—they seamlessly go from clear to dark when exposed to sunlight. Added to your favorite frames, these lenses are always ready whenever the light around you changes. No more rummaging through your bag looking for shades so you can drive safely, or wishing you had a pair of sunnies when you meet friends for an impromptu lunch al fresco. Specially designed to enhance outdoor vision, Transitions® lenses block 100% of UVA/UVB light, reduce eye fatigue and strain, and make everything around you crystal clear.
- Regular Sunglasses: Even if your vision is 20/20, it's still important to make sure that you're protecting those pretty peepers from the ultraviolet glares. Big, small, cat-eye, or classic, make sure you've got a pair or three stashed in your car, purse, or satchel of your choice. Having sunglasses at the ready now will keep you from developing eye problems like damaged retinas and cataracts later.
