Let’s not lie…having a great pair of sunglasses is key for either really protecting your eyes from the sun or just completing an outfit and making us look that much better. Either way, it’s very important to make sure that if you wear your sunglasses, your vision still remains perfect.
Many of us, like me, wear prescription glasses. So, since I do not wear contacts, nor care to, I always have to be using my glasses but during the day I want to use my sunglasses. The problem is when I put them on I don’t see quite as well as I should…so…the obvious thing is to make my sunglasses prescription as well.
We get this questions asked a lot whether you can add presctiption lenses to your sunglasses and the answer is yes but not always.
Here are the things to understand:
1. In order to add prescription lenses to sunglasses the lenses must be of a certain curve size. The lenses on the sunglasses must be base curve of 8 or less.
2. When we do your prescription lenses, the lab actually has to pop out the original lenses that the sunglasses came with and put in the new lenses. So, in most
cases this means that for example if you choose to add prescription lenses on a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses, you will lose the lenses they come with and the logo on top of the lens that says Ray-Ban.
3. You can add prescription lenses to any sunglases and they don’t have to be the same color of the original lens. You can choose different tint colors for your lenses. We offer grey and green as options for tint on your prescription lenses for sunglasses.
