Sunglasses have come a long way, from when they were first used by Chinese judges in the 16th century to help keep a poker face during trials. They have become today’s trendiest accessory with high functionality. With the recent introduction of powered or prescription sunglasses into the eyewear game, the functionality quotient has doubled. The world before Prescription Sunglasses For decades people with impaired vision or poor eyesight have struggled against the harsh sun. On one hand there is UV protection on the other is vision correction – which one to choose? You can’t wear spectacles AND sunglasses at the same time! Spectacle-wearers had even resorted to using clip-on tinted lenses to fight the glare and the sun. This was seriously dampening the style factor, not to mention being extremely inconvenient.

Not only will these sunglasses have tinted lenses to protect your eyes, but they will also provide vision correction for poor eyesight. Different from Photochromatic Glasses The similarities between photochromatic glasses and prescription sunglasses begin and end at tinted vision correction. Prescription sunglasses, being sunglasses, can only be worn outdoors or in bright light conditions indoors, but photochromatic glasses can be worn anywhere, anytime. Photochromatic glasses are light sensitive and they turn dark when they are outdoors and in hot conditions. The advantage Prescription Sunglasses have over Photochromatic lenses is the effective UV protection they provide from the harsh sunlight. Additionally Photochromatic lenses do not ‘darken’ as much as sunglass lenses, which is why prescription sunglasses are recommended for higher outdoors use. Also sunglasses frames tend to be larger than spectacle frames. Thus prescription sunglasses also provide additional protection to the sensitive under eye skin from the sun rays.
