Protect Your Eyes from the Sun
Dr. Thomas H. Clark, O.D. has been offering optical services in Williston, VT and the surrounding area since 1970. The new patient center at Williston Optometry also offers an ideal backdrop for the selection of the right prescription sunglasses for you. Our goal is to protect your eyes from the sun, but our optometrist also works to ensure that you can see clearly no matter where you are in your outdoor adventures. But, how do you choose the right sunglasses? What factors should you consider? How important is it to select the right prescription sunglasses with an experienced optometrist?
Key Factors to Consider in Prescription Sunglasses
Just because you don’t have perfect vision does not mean that you have to rely on just wearing glasses all the time. In fact, it’s important to protect your eyes from the sun with prescription sunglasses. At Williston Optometry, Dr. Clark and our staff work to make the process of selecting the best pair of prescription sunglasses as streamlined as possible. Here are the quick steps:
- Get an updated optical exam with our optometrist
- Get your pupillary distance measured.
- Select the prescription sunglasses you prefer
- Pick out the material you want (your options include: plastic, polycarbonate or high index)
The frame, as well as the type of material you prefer, is typically the major factors that affect the cost of your sunglasses. You really can hone in on what you want and need, as well as your level of activity. For example, if you’ll be spending a lot of time in the outdoors, you may select a frame accordingly.
