Wrap Around Prescription Sunglasses

Wrap Around Prescription Sunglasses

With their stay-put fit and the superior protection they provide from the elements, wrap around sunglasses are a popular choice for people on the go. One way to ensure your eyes are always operating at peak performance is to upgrade your sunglasses with your prescription.

In the past, many people were not able to get their prescriptions in sporty, wrap around shaped lenses. The thickness of the lens and distortion in peripheral vision were two major stumbling blocks; the unique curvature of a wrap around lens caused problems for lens manufacturers. But now, as digital lens making technology has advanced, all fans of wrap around sunglasses can get their prescriptions in their favorite frames - even those people with stronger prescriptions.

This advancement is especially important for people with hobbies like sports, motorcycles, or any outdoor activity where eye safety could be a concern. Wrap around glasses not only fully protect your eyes - from the front AND the sides - from UV rays, but they also protect your eyes from debris.

Wraparound prescription sunglasses offer the best protection from:

UVA/UVB radiation - Wraparounds block out more light than standard frames, as the temples are wider and the rims usually sit closer to the face.

Injury during sports - Many athletes choose wrap frames to protect their eyes. They are especially popular for baseball, protecting your eyes from airborne hazards while on a motorcycle, and for water sports.

Dangers on the job: People who work with their hands outdoors are sometimes exposed to flying or falling debris. Wrap around sunglasses put a barrier between the eyes the elements.

Many wrap around sunglasses are made with non-slip materials. Look for brands on FramesDirect.com that specialize in wrap glasses, like Oakley and Wiley X.

If you have concerns about ordering prescription lenses online, be assured FramesDirect.com have plenty of resources to make the process easy. Buying glasses online can be less expensive and simpler than visiting your local optician.
