Polarized Glasses from Our Eye Doctor in Lake County, FL
Gone are the days where you had to use a magnifying glass or needed to squint in order to see clearly. Nowadays, it's easy to find a highly revolutionized pair of glasses to help you see clearly, reduce glare, and enjoy your time outdoors, all while still having the prescription you need to see clearly! These eyeglasses are known as polarized eye glasses, and they have a wide range of benefits for people that love to spend time exercising, hiking, or doing other types of outdoor activities.
At Fishman and Sheridan Eye Care Specialists, we believe everyone deserves the very best eye care available. That's why we offer our clients the chance to wear their very own polarized glasses! These polarized glasses are available with the prescription of an eye doctor or ophthalmologist, who can help get you paired with set of eyeglasses to improve your vision and overall quality of life!
What Are Polarized Glasses?
Polarized glasses are glasses that have a special coating on the outside of them that reduces glare. They are much more than just a regular pair of shades. Unlike shaded glasses, made of cheap plastic and not prescription-based, your eye doctor can prescribe you a set of polarized glasses that improve your vision, filter out horizontal waves of light to help stop glare dead in its tracks, and also protect your eyes from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation.
Being exposed to high levels of UV light day in and day out, such as for people who work outdoors, can be hazardous to your eye health and your skin health. These UV lights can lead to issues such as skin cancer around the eye lids, and can lead to corneal damage, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
Do I Need Polarized Glasses?
If you have a high exposure to UV light, cannot drive safely due to glare, and need a prescription, it's best to get polarized glasses from an eye doctor. They will provide you with the best set of eyeglasses to help you see clearly, while also protecting your eyes from UV rays!
