Why You Should Get Prescription Sunglasses This Winter
At this time of year, you may not have seen the sun in a long time. It certainly doesn’t provide the warmth as it does in the summer! With the days getting shorter and the evenings drawing in, I’m sure you’ve not seen much of it this winter. It might actually be incredibly useful to have a pair of prescription sunglasses to hand, over the winter months. Here are a few reasons about why you should get prescription sunglasses this winter.
Although the sun might not be out much during this time of year, it’s a lot lower in the sky than in the summer. This can cause havoc when you’re driving, especially during school pickup time and rush hour. During sunrise and sunset, the sun is much lower in the sky for much longer so the glare that you’ll get when driving can create some pretty hazardous driving conditions. It’s always a good idea to have a pair of prescription sunglasses in the car with you throughout the year, particularly at this time when the sun visor doesn’t block out the sun’s rays.
Let it Snow!
In the South East, we might not have had too much snow in the last few years, but there’s always a chance! Either that or you might be going for a little trip to the ski slopes this winter. In snowy weather, it’s also useful to have a pair of sunglasses. As snow reflects the sun’s light, it makes it (fact) brighter than usual. In these conditions, you should always wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from that extra brightness that’s all around. You can actually get sunglasses that are perfect to protect your eyes from these conditions.
Many people swap over glasses on a regular basis. Having prescription sunglasses when you need sight help can make your life so much easier. At Focus Medical Eye Centre, we have a fabulous array of sunglasses to choose from, including all our designer sunglasses. And you can choose from nearly all our standard and design ranges, to have your own prescription fitted. That way, you can still enjoy having a pair of designer sunglasses, but with your own prescription added to them.
You may have also heard of polarised sunglasses before, and they are a popular type of sunglasses – particularly with skiers. Read a bit more about the benefits of having polarised lenses here.
