Sunglasses

Sunglasses are more than a fashion statement; they can provide people who need vision correction with protection from harmful UV rays. Prescription sunglasses reduce the risks of suffering from damage caused by UV rays and keep the eyes healthy. When you need prescription sunglasses, schedule an appointment with an eye doctor for a check-up and learn more about the options available. At Eyes on Hayden in Scottsdale, we are dedicated to providing quality eye care and eyewear to help our patients see clearly, even on sunny days.

What Are Prescription Sunglasses?

Prescription sunglasses are designed to wear outdoors to prevent eye strain, provide clear vision, and protect the eyes from harmful UV rays. Wearing prescription sunglasses outdoors helps reduce eye strain and lessens the need for squinting. Prescription sunglasses are perfect for people who cannot or do not want to wear contact lenses but want their eyes protected while outdoors.

How Prescription Sunglasses Protect the Eyes

Prescription sunglasses have a UV coating, protecting the eyes from harmful ultraviolet radiation. We are exposed to UV rays every day, especially when spending time outside. UV-coated lenses protect the eyes against damage that is similar to a sunburn on the eyes. UV damage may include red, puffy eyes and a feeling like something is stuck in the eye. Extended exposure to UV rays may even cause eye damage and cataracts.

You Need to See an Eye Doctor for Prescription Sunglasses

A comprehensive eye exam with an optometrist is needed to receive a prescription for corrective lenses, including sunglasses. Additionally, seeing an eye doctor ensures your eyes are healthy and have no underlying health conditions. Some health conditions can be first diagnosed during a routine eye exam, including high blood pressure, diabetes, and more. Plus, seeing an eye doctor for routine exams creates a baseline that ensures your prescription sunglasses are the proper strength for you to see.

Testimonials

  • I have worn contact lenses for years but due to my strong near-sighted prescription with high astigmatism could get neither the comfort nor vision very good in standard gas permeable lenses or in soft lenses. I had reverted back to wearing glasses most of the time until Dr. Krywko recommended the SynergEyes lenses. They work great for me and I can finally wear contacts again! Thank you, Dr. Krywko!

  • Dr. Candria Kryko is a wonderful OD. I was seen by Dr. Kryko in Scottsdale recently for an eye exam/contact lens fitting. She is extremely pleasant, attentive, and she took her time to give me a thorough exam and answer all of my questions. Dr. Kryko gave me recommendations on contacts and eye drops, as well, she gave me tips on how I can save on some of my contact expenses. She was professional, attentive, took the time to explain what was needed, and was simply nice to be around. I recommend Dr. Kryko.

  • My entire family have been seeing Dr. Krywko for years. The professionalism, care and focus are over the top. I was told by an optician I would not be a likely candidate for contact lenses. However with Dr. Krywko's patience and wisdom she was able to fit me for contact lenses that work perfectly! I am thrilled..........Plus, I also have the most gorgeous frames (when I do not want to wear my contacts. ) I receive comments every time I wear them, " where did you get your glasses!" Dr. Kryko just received the newest styles......I'm in trouble..........
