Prescription Sunglass Lenses
Having a pair of prescription sunglasses is the best way to correct your vision while keeping your eyes protected in the sun. While most eyeglass lenses do contain ultraviolet (UV) ray protection, they do nothing against the extreme sun glare that causes you to squint. We offer a variety of lens options for prescription sunglasses. To make the process of ordering sunglasses online easier, we have the breakdown of each lens type.
Prescription Sun Lenses
If you have a single vision prescription, we offer prescription sun lenses on over 100 pairs of sunglasses. There are three different lens options for prescription sunglasses.
- Standard Plastic
The Standard lens is a high quality CR-39 plastic lens. These lenses are only recommended for prescriptions between +/- 3.00. The polarized enhancement is available for this lens as an added option.
- Thin & Light Polarized Polycarbonate
The Thin & Light lens is an impact-resistant polycarbonate lens. These lightweight lenses are 22% thinner than our Standard lenses and are highly recommended for kids, those with active lifestyles and prescriptions that range between +/- 4.00. This lens also comes with our polarized enhancement to give extra protection against glare and eye strain.
- Ultra Thin & Light Hi-Index
The Ultra Thin & Light lens is hi-index, ultra-thin lens. These lightweight lenses are 33% thinner than our Standard lenses, provides optimal comfort and helps strong prescriptions—-8.00 to +6.00—look their best. The polarized enhancement is also available for this lens as an added option.
Prescription Sun Lens Enhancements
For both single vision and progressive prescriptions, we offer two lens enhancements for eyeglass frames that will provide the look and feel of prescription sunglasses.
- Transitions Lenses
Light-intelligent Transitions™ Signature® lenses are available for both single vision and progressive prescriptions. As these lenses automatically respond to changing light conditions, they’re a great choice for people who aren’t fond of carrying two pairs of glasses at all times. However, Transitions™ Signature® lenses are only available for eyeglass frames.
- Sun Tint
The Sun Tint enhancement is available for all prescriptions and all eyeglass frames. This is the recommended option for people with progressive prescriptions who are wanting prescription sunglasses. This enhancement provides 80% opacity and 100% UV protection for the complete look and feel of prescription sunglasses.
Prescription sunglasses offer more benefits than just vision correction and UV protection. There are also many colored sunglass lenses to choose from with their own advantages. Choose the prescription sunglass lenses that will work best for you and your lifestyle!
