Posted Sep 9, 2020 | Tips, Tricks & Tech

You might be asking yourself, “how do I choose lenses for my glasses?” while looking at the wide variety of options you’re being offered online or in your doctor’s office. Here’s a quick guide to help you choose the right lenses for you.

Where are you using your glasses the most?

Indoors with High Screen Time

If you find yourself taking in a lot of screen time throughout the day, it’s important to consider upgrading your lens to include blue light reduction.

Can I wear blue light glasses all the time? Yes! The coating applied to your glasses won't impact your prescription allowing you to wear them all day long. Blue light coatings simply help reduce blue light exposure to your eyes while you’re in front of your device, watching TV, sitting at your computer, or any other time you’re exposed.

Living for the Outdoors

If you have a job that requires you to spend a considerable amount of time outdoors, or maybe you spend your day looking for ways to get outside, consider a lens enhancement like SunSync. This lens enhancement will let you take one pair of glasses from inside to the great outdoors without having to deal with the pesky swapping business of glasses to sunglasses and back to glasses.

Visit our SunSync lenses page for additional details about light-reactive (photochromic) lenses.

Still not a fan of the glasses and don’t find yourself wearing sunnies that often? It’s cool. We still got you. Look at these contacts that can keep your eyes protected from harmful UV rays.

ACUVUE has come out with one-of-a-kind biweekly contact lenses that adapt to sunlight like photochromic glasses do. ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ are great for active lifestyles where glasses and sunglasses aren’t always an option.
