Why Are Sunglasses So Important?

At Midway Optometry, we encourage our patients to invest in a good pair of sunglasses. Our San Diego optometrist can help you choose a pair that is both fashionable and offers maximum UV-protection.

UV Protection

UV-A and UV-B rays can damage the eyes, leading to various conditions like macular degeneration and cataracts, and eventually loss of central vision. Sunglasses should offer both UV and glare protection. At Midway Optometry, our sunglasses selection offers full UV protection in a variety of lens colors and tints. Even with the lightest color lens, you’ll get full 100% UV protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Glare Protection

We can add extra glare protection to eliminate reflecting light from water, sand, snow, and concrete. These days, many lenses come with UV protection and easily added extra glare protection. We can create bifocal, multifocal and progressive lens sunglasses, too. Need prescription sunglasses that double as poolside or beachside reading glasses? No problem!

Lens Choices To Fit Your Lifestyle

While glass lenses offer the best optical quality, people sometimes prefer a lighter, shatterproof sunglass lens. We offer a variety of lens choices including polycarbonate or Trivex, CR-39 plastic, special scratch-resistant lenses, and special polarized prescription sunglasses and glare-reducing coatings for lenses.
