The benefits of prescription sunglasses

As the weather gets warmer and brighter, we may start digging out our sunglasses again. After all, sunglasses are not just a great fashion accessory; they also protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays emitted from the sun. 

At Arlo Wolf, we not only stock a great supply of fashionable and protective women’s glasses and men’s prescription eyewear, but we also offer  affordable prescription sunglasses too! So next time you decide to buy a pair of sunnies, you can protect both your vision and your eyes simultaneously.

Prescription sunglasses vs normal sunglasses

It’s no secret that sunglasses offer great protection for your eyes against harmful UV rays, meaning that you can wear them with confidence knowing that your eyes are well and truly protected. This can be especially useful when you want to read outside, which is a popular practice in the warmer months. 

Fortunately, you can easily upgrade any of your regular Arlo Wolf sunglasses into prescription sunglasses. And with our extensive sunglasses range, you’ll be spoilt for choice on the styles and patterns to choose from.

Reading outside with prescription sunglasses

Reading outside is becoming vastly more popular as we approach more consistent and warmer weather. Many of our first decisions may be to bring along sunglasses as well as your regular reading sunglasses, and having to regularly switch between them means that there is a period of time where your eyes are unprotected. 

To avoid this unnecessary hassle, why not combine the elements of prescription glasses with protective sunglasses and get the best of both worlds? That way, you’ll be assured of the protection your eyes will receive, not only from eye strain but  from sun damage too. 

Types of lenses to choose 

From mirrored lenses to polarised lenses, the possibilities are endless. 

  • Polarised lenses- polarised lenses help to reduce the glare from the sun, meaning your eyes are less susceptible to eye strain. 
  • Mirrored lenses- these fashionable sunglasses help prevent sun rays from accessing your eyes and offer optimal UV protection. Read more about the different types of lenses you can choose from here.
  • Varifocal lenses– these lenses combine both distance and reading elements of your prescription. You can upgrade to varifocal lenses with all of our sunglasses and glasses!
  • Blue light glasses– blue light glasses work well at reducing the glare from blue light, which comes from the sun. However, it’s important not to rely on blue light glasses as your only source of light protection, as they aren’t as effective as normal prescription sunglasses lenses at protecting your eyes

You can also choose from our extensive range of men’s prescription eyewear and women’s glasses, as well as our eco-friendly glasses. For those of us who spend a lot of time outside and want to make sure our eyes receive the maximum protection, why not try Brooklyn Sun in Gold or Silver, or Chase Sun in Black

You can upgrade any of our sunglasses into polarised lenses or mirrored lenses before checkout. Our Teller Sun in Tortoise comes with Silver Mirrored Lenses, but you can also change them to alternative coloured mirrored lenses too.
