If you plan on spending time in the sun, it is important to make sure your eyes have proper protection from UV rays. At Optical Expressions, we can help you find sunglasses that will keep your eyes safe from UV damage. Whether you are interested in clip-ons, wraparound lenses, or prescription sunglasses, we can help you find the right solution for you.


Why It's Important to Wear Sunglasses

Being out in the sun exposes your eyes to ultraviolet radiation. These rays can cause lasting damage and put you at increased risk for eye conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration. When you wear sunglasses, your eyes will have a line of defense against these UV rays. Your sunglasses can also shield your eyes from the elements. While sunglasses are sold at many stores, an optometrist can help you find quality sunglasses that provide your eyes with all of the protection that you need.

Finding the Best Protection for Your Eyes

We offer many different types of sunglasses, including prescription glasses, clip-ons, and wraparound lenses. Our sunglasses can block out 99% of UVA and UVB rays, keeping your eyes safe even when you are spending hours in the sun. Our eye doctors will ask questions about your lifestyle to learn what kind of protection you need. If you enjoy activities that expose you to sun glare, like boating, fishing, or skiing, we may recommend polarized sunglasses, which can block out glare.

Prescription Sunglasses

If you need prescription sunglasses, we can perform an eye exam to ensure that your current prescription is up-to-date. You will be able to see clearly while still shielding your eyes from the sun. We also offer prescription shades that darken when they are exposed to bright light.

In addition to helping you find the right sunglasses, we can make other recommendations to keep your eyes safe and healthy while you are in the sunshine, including UV-blocking contact lenses. We are happy to answer your questions so that you can find the best way to keep your eyes safe.
