Designer Frames & Sunglasses at Dougal, McClellan, Sullivan, & Ethington Eye Associates
Sunglasses offer clear, comfortable vision while also protecting your eyes from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet light — which is a known risk factor for developing cataracts, macular degeneration, and other sight-threatening eye conditions. That’s why it’s important to always wear sunglasses whenever outdoors.
If you don’t already own a pair of prescription sunglasses, below we’ll explore 3 compelling reasons to pick up a pair from your local optometrist in Chicago.
When you have a pair of prescription sunglasses, protecting your eyes while outdoors becomes a no-brainer.
Even those who wear contact lenses can benefit from owning a pair of prescription sunglasses for days when you just want to give your eyes a break from lenses.
Ask your eye doctor about how to personalize your prescription sunglasses to suit your needs.
Whether you prefer anti-reflective coatings, polarization, or other optical upgrades — your pair of prescription sunnies can be tailor-made for your eyes.
You can even order a pair of bifocal or multifocal sunglasses if you require more than one prescription.
They Offer Better Protection
When you order a pair of prescription sunglasses from your local optometrist, you can be sure you’re getting superior quality.
Sunglasses should always offer 100% UVA and UVB protection, but the fact is that many sunglasses available from other vendors don’t always provide that level of protection. And don’t be fooled by “UV blocking” stickers on the lenses — “UV blocking” is not the same as “100% UV protection”.
At Dougal, McClellan, Sullivan, & Ethington Eye Associates in Chicago, we carry a wide range of fashionable, high-quality, protective sunglasses that will keep your eyes feeling and looking their best.
For all of your optical needs, we’re here for you. Call us today to learn more or schedule your appointment.
- A: It’s important to wear sunglasses all year round. Prolonged exposure to harmful UV light has been known to cause a handful of sight-threatening diseases like cataracts, macular degeneration, and photokeratitis. Sunglasses also shield your eyes from harsh winds that carry debris and irritating allergens.
- A: Whether you’re buying glasses, contact lenses, or sunglasses, it’s best to order them directly from your eye doctor rather than an online source. Online eyewear is more prone to manufacturing errors that can cause visual discomfort and even damage your eyes. When you buy from a local optometrist you get personal care and attention and can bring in your eyewear for adjustments and repairs.
