At the Eyecare Center of Ken Caryl, we offer a wide selection of designer sunglasses for adults and children.
Whether or not you need vision correction, sunglasses are important for everyone to wear. Not only do they protect you from damaging UV rays, but they also allow you to see clearly when driving, playing sports, or engaging in any sort of outdoor activity. Our optician will listen to your preferences and recommend the best eyewear for your face shape, style, budget, and visual prescription needs.
We offer premium sunglasses from leading brands, including Bolle, Polaroid, Gucci, and more! We offer both non-prescription and prescription sunglasses to protect your eyes from UV radiation.
At the Eyecare Center of Ken Caryl, we strongly recommend the use of polarized sunglass lenses.
- Here in Colorado, we all like to spend time outside. Wearing sunglasses with polarized lenses provides optimal vision in our bright Colorado sunshine, and wearing polarized lenses is extra helpful for visual clarity during sunny days with snow on the ground.
- Just like putting sunscreen on your skin to protect it from UV rays, wearing polarized lenses provides UV protection for your eyes and helps you safeguard your eye health.
- Polarized lenses block some of the light rays from passing through the lens, thereby decreasing glare, and improving the quality of vision.
- If you enjoy fishing, wearing polarized lenses will allow you to see into the water.
What are the benefits of wearing prescription sunglasses?
People who need eyeglasses for vision correction should also have at least one pair of prescription sunglasses. We’re sharing the biggest benefits of wearing prescription sunglasses to help you decide if they are right for you.
Sunglasses protect your eyes from high winds, dust, sand, and other airborne debris that can irritate your eyes and damage your cornea. Prescription sunglasses also reduce glare and enable you to see clearly when driving, riding a bike, or doing other activities that require clear vision.
Protection from harmful UV rays
Exposure to UV light raises your risk of eye diseases and other problems, including cataracts, photokeratitis, macular degeneration, melanoma, and pterygium. Quality prescription sunglasses offer protection from UV radiation, reducing your risk of developing eye health and vision problems caused by UV exposure.
Reduced eye strain and fewer headaches
Exposure to blue light can cause eye strain and headaches, and sunlight is mostly blue light. The Eyecare Center of Ken Caryl offers prescription sunglasses that block 100% of UV and solar blue light when outdoors.
Experience improved dark adaptation
Sunglasses improve your vision by blocking UV rays and reducing glare throughout the day. Additionally, wearing high-quality polarized sunglasses can also help reduce night vision loss.
Enjoy your outdoor adventures
Prescription sunglasses also help enhance outdoor experiences by providing a greater level of clarity than non-prescription options. With clear vision comes greater confidence when engaging in outdoor activities like hiking or playing sports, so you may want to consider wearing prescription sunglasses if you spend a lot of time outdoors.
