Recent research has found that the sun can damage the sensitive structures of your eye, the cornea, ocular lens and retina.
Ultraviolet protective lenses (UV Protection or UV-400) keeps the UV rays from the sun from reaching your eyes. UV rays are the cause of sunburn and damage to the sensitive structures of the eye. UV light has been found to cause advanced aging of the eyes and the skin around the eyes. UV protection is the largest concern and is provided in all our sunglass styles.
Polarized lenses, Transitions lenses, tints and UV protective lenses provide the best eye protection and comfort in all light conditions. People who spend time outdoors and those who are light sensitive, should wear sunglasses every time they go outdoors.
If you wear contact lenses or have had Laser Vision Correction, you also need to protect your eyes at all times. In addition, there are several medications that when taken, produce light sensitivity, and sunglasses need to be worn when outside.
Glasses Q & A
What are the signs I need glasses?
Changes to your vision including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism, develop slowly, meaning you might not notice right away that you don’t see as clearly as you once did. Some of the signs that indicate you might need glasses or a new lens prescription include:
- Frequent headaches
- Holding your phone closer or further from your eyes to see clearly
- Eye fatigue
- Blurred vision
You should have an eye exam at least once every two years so your optometrist can monitor your eye health and visual acuity. If you use corrective lenses, your prescription is valid for a year, and you need an annual exam to keep your prescription current.
How do I choose new glasses?
When you’re in the market for new glasses, you need to think about two things: lenses and frames. While your lens selection will ultimately be determined by your prescription strength, you may have options to choose from when it comes to material type and coating.
Frames allow for more customization. They come in a wide range of shapes, sizes, and colors, so you have plenty of options when seeking glasses that suit your facial shape and coloring.
For example, if you have a round face, rectangular or square frames that are slightly wider than your face are often flattering. Or, if you have a diamond-shaped face, frames that sweep up at the outer corners, such as cat-eye shaped frames, can accentuate your cheekbones.
You also should consider the strength of your prescription when you choose frames, as the stronger your prescription, the thicker your lenses will be, and some frames are better at disguising thick lenses than others.
What are my options?
At Advanced Optometry, you can choose from a variety of designer frames, including:
