Consider several lens options when buying your new prescription sunglasses. Mirror coating is a reflective layer applied in varied densities to achieve the desired opacity; beyond its flashy style, mirror coating offers practical benefits: It decreases the amount of sunlight that reaches your eyes, reduces glare, and improves optical clarity.
Sunglasses with polarized lenses realign horizontal light, which in turn reduces glare, improves contrast, and relieves eye strain. If you spend a lot of time outdoors or behind the wheel, consider opting for polarized lenses in your prescription sunglasses.
Gradient lenses in your prescription sunglasses feature a darker tint near the top of the rims that gradually lightens towards the bottom. Not only are they fashionable, but they offer improved vision in some scenarios, including driving, where the lighter lower portion of the lens allows you to see the dashboard clearly, and the darker tint at the top will filter the sunlight coming through the windshield.

Prescription sunglasses are made in the same way eyeglasses are made, with the additional step of adding a tinted lens and possibly a polarized coating. To make polarized sunglasses, we fit tinted lenses to your chosen frame. Then the lens goes through the process of surfacing, which conforms it to your desired prescription. Finally, we use chemical processes to add polarization if desired, to complete your prescription sunglasses.
Prescription sunglasses that are also polarized are common. Top manufacturers include Ray-Ban, Maui Jim, and Costa, but pretty much every major eyewear designer offers a polarized option in their most popular prescription sunglasses frames.
Prescription sunglasses can be as dark or light as the darkest or lightest lenses offered. If you’d like a darker pair of prescription sunglass lenses in your frames, you can choose them in the ordering process. Both light and dark prescription sunglasses lens options are available in many frames.
