Prescription Polarized Lenses

Sample Our Prescription Polarized Lenses At Our Advanced Eye Care Associates in Providence, RI

If you wear prescription glasses (and not contacts) for a vision problem, you may find yourself in a pickle when you go outside on a sunny day. After all: you don't want to be squinting into the sun, but when you remove your glasses to put on sunglasses, you'll have trouble seeing. At Advanced Eye Care Associates, our Providence optometrists are proud to offer prescription polarized lenses that fit a variety of designer sunglasses frames. This way, you can protect your eyes adequately and maintain a clear vision no matter what the weather is like outside.

What Are Polarized Lenses And How Do They Work?

Polarized lenses are inlaid with a special filter that eliminates glare. Glare happens when light bounces off reflective surfaces, including water, sand, snow, ice, and metal. A polarized lens will interfere with light beams bouncing off reflective objects and reduce the appearance of bright glare.

The Advantages of Polarized Lenses Over Conventional Sunglasses

Conventional lenses can't reduce glare the way polarized lenses can. Polarized sunglasses are ideal for people who spend a lot of time on the water, on snow, driving, or simply out and about in the outdoors. People with higher sensitivity to bright lights (such as folks with chronic dry eye syndrome and post-cataract surgery) may also find these types of polarized lenses especially helpful. 

Prescription polarized lenses are particularly beneficial because they provide you with a quality anti-glare effect while also refracting (bending) light into your eyes correctly so images will focus on your retinas, allowing you to see clearly. Prescription polarized lenses are a great option for people with astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness who spend a lot of time outdoors.

How Our Providence Optometrists Can Provide You With Prescription Polarized Lenses

If you're looking for prescription sunglasses, we encourage you to consider testing out a polarized style for enhanced outdoor vision, eye comfort, and eye protection. Our Providence optometrists can assess your vision on an eye exam to determine the vision correction prescription you need, and then manufacture a pair of prescription polarized lenses that can be inserted into a frame of your choice. We can also discuss with you alternative options including an anti-glare coating for extra protection as well as transition lenses (good for people who frequently go inside and outside throughout the day).
