Prescription Sunglasses: Enhancing Visual Clarity and Sun Protection

In the realm of eyewear, prescription sunglasses stand as a seamless blend of fashion and functionality, catering to those who require corrective vision while embracing the great outdoors.

These specialized sunglasses not only shield your eyes from the sun's glare and harmful UV rays but also address your unique visual needs. Imagine the perfect synthesis of clear sight and stylish frames, allowing you to comfortably navigate sunny days without compromising on either clarity or style.

For individuals with corrective prescriptions, the need for clear and accurate vision extends beyond indoor settings.
As the sun emerges, its brilliant rays can introduce challenges for those relying on eyeglasses to see clearly.

This is where prescription sunglasses step in, offering a tailored solution that accommodates both visual correction and sun protection.

Whether you have myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism, or even presbyopia (age-related difficulty in focusing on close objects), prescription sunglasses ensure that you can enjoy the great outdoors without compromising on visual acuity.

The appeal of prescription sunglasses is not limited solely to those with existing vision impairments. Even individuals with perfect vision can benefit from these specialized eyewear options. Whether you're lounging by the beach, exploring vibrant landscapes, or engaged in outdoor activities, prescription sunglasses offer a multitude of advantages. Not only do they shield your eyes from the sun's harmful UV rays, which are known to contribute to various eye conditions, but they also mitigate glare and enhance overall comfort.

Intricately designed to cater to a diverse range of preferences, prescription sunglasses have evolved into an essential accessory that effortlessly fuses fashion with utility. With a wide array of frame styles, lens tints, and brand options, these sunglasses enable you to express your personal style while enjoying optimal visual clarity. Moreover, as advancements in lens technology continue to flourish, options like varifocal lenses provide a convenient solution for those who require both distance and reading prescriptions.

In the following exploration, we will delve deeper into the components that make up prescription sunglasses, including lens types, brands, index considerations, lens tints, polarisation, gradient options, and the pivotal role of back surface anti-glare coating. By understanding these elements, you can make an informed choice that perfectly aligns with your needs, lifestyle, and preferences. Whether you're embarking on an outdoor adventure, strolling through city streets, or simply basking in the warmth of the sun, prescription sunglasses empower you to do so with clarity, comfort, and style.

If you're in need of corrective eyewear to improve your vision, it's important to consider not just clear optical lenses for everyday use, but also prescription sunglasses for sunnier conditions.

At Pretavoir, we specialize in providing prescription sunglasses that cater to a wide range of sunglass frames. Interestingly, you can even fit prescription sunglass lenses onto frames that were initially intended for clear optical lenses. All our prescription (also known as Rx) sunglass lenses are designed to provide comprehensive UV protection. However, there are several key factors to consider when choosing your prescription sunglasses.

Lens Type: Single Vision or Varifocal

If you're above the age of 40, you might require distinct prescriptions for both distance and reading. In such cases, the convenience of having both prescriptions in a single lens can be achieved through varifocal lenses.

These lenses enable you to seamlessly switch between different focal lengths. While we can indeed provide and fit varifocal lenses to prescription-friendly sunglasses, it's important to note that direct ordering isn't possible; please get in touch with us for such specialized orders.

On the other hand, if you're looking for glasses with a single prescription, let's delve into the next aspect.

Lens Brand: Quality and Choice

When it comes to lenses, various manufacturers offer a range of qualities and prices. Our offerings encompass three lens brands to suit diverse customer preferences.

The TruOptics brand is positioned at an entry-level price point, providing good quality options. Then, moving up the scale, the Essilor brand offers lenses of higher-than-average quality at a mid-range price.

For those who prioritize exceptional quality, the esteemed Zeiss brand is an ideal choice. Renowned for its precision optical products like microscopes and telescopes, Zeiss lenses exude excellence, which also extends to their optical lens portfolio.

Opting for Zeiss lenses might entail a slightly higher cost, but the quality speaks for itself.

Lens Index: Thickness and Strength

If your prescription is relatively strong, particularly if the spherical value exceeds +/- 2.50, you might consider thinner lens materials.

While the standard material is 1.5 index, we offer options like 1.6 and 1.67 indexes, which are notably thinner.

Opting for 1.6 can reduce lens thickness by around 25%, while 1.67 material can further reduce thickness by another 25% approximately.
Additionally, these thinner materials offer enhanced impact resistance compared to the basic 1.5 index material.

Polarised Lenses: Glare-Free Vision

Polarised lenses are treated with a specialized chemical to filter light.

These molecules are arranged to block specific light wavelengths, similar to how a venetian blind filters light. This effectively eliminates harsh reflections from shiny surfaces.

Numerous premium brands, including Ray Ban, Gucci, and Cartier, offer polarised lenses. The Maui Jim brand exclusively offers polarised lenses, which are becoming increasingly popular.

At Pretavoir, you can choose from three polarised lens tints: Grey, Brown, and Green.

Lens Tint: Aesthetics and Functionality

In non-polarised options, we provide six different lens colors: Brown, Grey, Green, Yellow, Pink, and Purple.

The choice of lens tint often aligns with personal preferences and frame colors. For instance, if you opt for a black sunglass frame, you might find grey or dark green lenses complement the frame well.

On the other hand, a brown frame could pair beautifully with brown-tinted lenses.

Grey lenses typically produce a cooler tone, while brown lenses offer a warmer tone.

Gradient Lens: Aesthetic and Functional Blend

A gradient lens is darkest at the upper portion, where your distance vision is situated, and gradually lightens towards the lower part.

While this lens type is often chosen for its aesthetics, it also holds functional benefits. For example, when driving, the gradient lens can make the dashboard appear brighter.

Similarly, if you intend to read while wearing your sunglasses, a lighter tint near the bottom can facilitate reading.

Back Surface Anti-Glare Coating: Enhanced Visual Comfort

Completing the range of features for optimal sunglass lenses is the inclusion of a back surface anti-glare/anti-reflection coating.

This coating minimizes distracting reflections that may bounce off the back surface of the lens into your eyes, enhancing visual comfort.

Many premium non-prescription lenses from brands like Maui Jim and Serengeti include this feature by default.

We are pleased to offer this option for prescription lenses as well, allowing you to add the finishing touch to your sunglasses for the utmost visual clarity.

Absolutely. Many prescription sunglasses are optimized for driving, reducing glare and enhancing road visibility.

Drivers often have a strong affinity for Serengeti sunglasses due to several key features that cater specifically to the demands of driving. Serengeti sunglasses are equipped with advanced polarization technology. This feature significantly reduces glare caused by sunlight reflecting off surfaces like roads, cars, and water. For drivers, glare reduction translates to improved visibility and reduced eye strain, especially during bright daylight or when driving in challenging weather conditions. Serengeti are also renowned for their photochromic lenses, which automatically adjust their tint based on changing light conditions. This feature ensures optimal visibility whether you're driving through tunnels, shaded areas, or open roads. Photochromic lenses adapt to varying light levels, offering consistent clarity without the need to switch to different sunglasses. Their lenses also enhance contrasts, making it easier for drivers to differentiate between objects on the road. This heightened contrast can help drivers identify potential hazards, pedestrians, and road markings more effectively, ultimately contributing to safer driving. At the same time, Serengeti sunglasses are designed to preserve the true colors of your surroundings, which is essential for drivers. This color accuracy ensures that traffic signals, road signs, and other important visual cues are perceived accurately, contributing to better decision-making while driving.

Water sports enthusiasts often have a strong affinity for Maui Jim sunglasses due to a combination of features that make these sunglasses particularly well-suited for aquatic activities. Maui Jim is known for its advanced PolarizedPlus2® lens technology. This technology effectively reduces glare caused by sunlight reflecting off water surfaces. For water sports enthusiasts, such as surfers, sailors, and fishermen, glare reduction is crucial for maintaining clear vision and focus on the water. PolarizedPlus2® lenses not only reduce glare but also enhance overall vision by increasing contrast and improving colour clarity. This is particularly beneficial when identifying submerged obstacles, fish, or changes in water depth. Engaging in water sports exposes individuals to intense sun and UV radiation. Maui Jim sunglasses provide comprehensive UV protection, safeguarding the eyes from harmful UV rays. This protection is essential for maintaining eye health, especially in reflective water environments. Also, many Maui Jim sunglasses feature a hydrophobic coating that repels water, oil, and dirt. This coating prevents water droplets from sticking to the lens surface, ensuring clear vision even when splashed with water. Water sports can be physically demanding and involve exposure to elements like wind and waves. Maui Jim sunglasses are often constructed with durable materials and impact-resistant lenses, offering the necessary durability to withstand active water-based pursuits.

Do prescription sunglasses come with warranties?

Yes, all our brands offer warranties on their prescription sunglasses, covering manufacturing defects and certain damages.

Can I get prescription sunglasses with mirrored lenses?

Yes, mirrored lenses are available as an option for prescription sunglasses, adding a stylish and reflective outer coating.

Can I choose a gradient tint for my prescription sunglasses?

Certainly. Gradient tints, which are darker at the top and gradually lighten towards the bottom, can be applied to prescription sunglasses.

Can I return or exchange prescription sunglasses if I'm not satisfied?

We do not offer returns on prescription lenses - we would recommend trying your sunglasses as frame-only at home before continuing with your prescription order. This way you can ensure you are happy with the fit and the shape of your sunglasses.

Can I wear prescription sunglasses if I already wear contact lenses?

Yes, you can wear prescription sunglasses even if you normally wear contact lenses. Prescription sunglasses provide an alternative option for vision correction, especially when you prefer not to wear contacts all the time or when your eyes need a break from them.
