Seeing with UV

Seeing in a UV world

Being outside under the sun is one of life's simplest pleasures. However, too much time in the sun without eye protection can be dangerous. Even on a cloudy day UV rays are bombarding your eyes. Short-term exposure can lead to temporary sun-blindness; long-term exposure has been linked to cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, and skin cancer. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, the eyelid region is one of the most susceptible areas on the body to develop skin cancers. Wearing sunglasses with prescription lenses helps protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV radiation.

Polarized prescription sunglasses combine the benefits of UV protection with your prescription. LensCrafters can pair a range of prescription sun lenses with virtually any frame of your choosing. Whether you're trekking mountain trails, on the golfing green, or enjoying the good weather, you can have the clear sun vision you need.

UV rays are strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.** Be sure to plan accordingly.

Improved outdoor performance


Going outside without protective eyewear can impair your vision and performance. In or on water, around snow, and anywhere with a reflective surface, the sun's rays are magnified. This exposes your eyes to a level of glare and UV rays that can be distracting, even momentarily blinding.

Polarized sunglass lenses neutralize most of the glare and UV rays so you can keep your eyes focused on performing your best. It’s also a safer way to drive. Polarized lenses are ideal for driving because they cut down the glare caused by light reflecting off the road, allowing you to see more clearly.

LensCrafters offers a comprehensive array of performance-optimized prescription sunglass frames and lenses from brands including Ray-Ban® and Oakley®, so you have a vision package perfectly prescribed for great performance.
