Below you will find information on how to create your custom lenses for prescription sunglasses. All of the different options shown below will convert a clear prescription lens into prescription sunglasses.
Prescription Sunglasses with Polarized Lenses
Prescription sunglasses with polarized lenses are very popular with outdoor enthusiasts who need to protect their eyes from harmful rays and reduce reflected glare surrounding them. Sunglasses and prescription sunglasses with polarized lenses are also recommended for light sensitive people to wear indoors or after any kind of eye surgery because of the superior light filtering found in polarized technology.
Polarized lenses have UVA and UVB protection and usually come with about a standard 80% grey tint (visual appearance is light black). They are highly recommended versus simple tint for people planning on being outdoors for the better part of a sunny day. Polarized prescription sunglasses are also sometimes referred to as High Definition sunglasses because of the way they filter light and give off a clearer and more crisp image.
For a prescription sunglasses buyer who wants to protect their eyes in the sun, our opticians almost always recommend the polarized option to be added to your
prescription sunglasses purchase, available in the EXTRAS section when you
customize your lenses in the checkout.

WARNING: Tinting reading glasses is not advisable. Tinting high prescriptions are also not advisable. Normally you can ask for a 20% tint for a cosmetic feel, but please understand the 80% gray tint is very dark and can hurt your prescription strength quality. Polarized lenses are not suggested for viewing LCD displays (computers, gps, etc).
