Why Patients Should Purchase Polarized Lenses When Ordering Prescription Sunglasses

Are you an avid outdoors person? Anyone who enjoys the rich beauty of Wyoming, taking off to go biking, skiing, jogging or golfing or spending time outside with activities such as boating and fishing needs to be prepared to protect their eyes from the sun’s powerful rays. Even a stroll down the street while running errands requires protection from the sun. But you don’t have to sacrifice your sense of fashion, thanks to the designer sunglasses in Sheridan and Gillette that we offer at WyoVision Associates.

The team at our optometry clinic in Sheridan and Gillette has been helping patients find the perfect polarized sunglasses since 1998 (our Gillette office opened last year) and we welcome the opportunity to provide assistance to you too.

What Are Polarized Lenses?

Your optometrist in Sheridan & Gillette WY wants you to know that polarized lenses are sunglasses that have been enhanced to not only safeguard your eyes from harmful UV rays, but also against the glare that occurs when harsh sunlight bounces off of reflective surfaces like sidewalks or lakes.

Under normal circumstances, light from our sun is scattered in every direction. But when light bounces off of a reflective surface, it intensifies as it travels in a single direction, resulting in harmful glare. 

By now, it should be clear that people who spend a lot of time working or playing outdoors must protect their eyes with polarized sunglasses, with no exception. Even if you are only driving around during the day, wearing polarized sunglasses should be part of your routine commute and daily errands, going forward.
