The Importance of Wearing Sunglasses
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can be extremely harmful to your eyes. Excessive exposure over time can damage the retina, and may increase your risk for vision-impairing problems like macular degeneration and cataracts. Your eyes can even become “sunburned” in a condition called photokeratitis, which is especially common while on or around reflective surfaces like water, sun, and snow.
While wearing a wide-brimmed hat and using sunscreen on your face helps, putting on a great pair of sunglasses when you’re enjoying the great outdoors of Montana is key, too. The good news is that we can take your up-to-date vision prescription and fit it to your dream pair of sunglasses. This way, you’ll see well, protect your eyes, and look and feel confident.
How to Choose the Best Sunglasses for You
Picking the right sunglasses can be a fun process. But there’s quite a few things to consider that will help you narrow down your choices, including:
- What shape is your face? For instance, square shaped faces often look good with oval frames, and heart-shaped faces often look good with angular frames like aviators. Try on our wide range of frames so that you can really see what fits you best or ask our optometry team for help.
- What is your budget? In our optometry clinic, we are proud to offer a range of designer frames, including Tiffany & Co. and Silhouette, that can suit most budgets.
- What is your lifestyle? Look for durable, lightweight, or scratch-resistant frames and lenses if you’re active outdoors.
