Prescription Sunglasses


Updated May 14, 2009

Definition: Prescription sunglasses are those with a corrective prescription built into the lenses. The safest prescription sunglasses will block 99 to 100% of UV light.

Prescription sunglasses make it possible to enjoy outdoor activities, as well as driving, while protecting the eyes from the bright sun.
