We carry a high-quality collection of sunglasses which will protect your eyes from damaging UV rays and enable you to experience clear, comfortable vision when you’re driving, playing sports, or engaging in any sort of outdoor activity.

Sunglasses are important for everyone to wear, whether you need vision correction or not, as quality sunglasses provide protection from potentially damaging UV rays. You can purchase non-prescription sunglasses or prescription sunglasses in our optical. Prescription sunglasses will ensure you have clear and protected vision while enjoying time outside or driving.

At Ascension Optical, we offer top sunglass brands, including Maui Jim sunglasses, which are not only very stylish but feature PolarizedPlus2® technology which reduces the impact of the sun’s harsh glare while offering relief from several long-term health risks. We also offer Oakley, Costa, and Ray-Ban sunglasses in a variety of styles and colors!

What are the benefits of wearing prescription sunglasses? 

People who wear eyeglasses for vision correction should have at least one pair of prescription sunglasses. We’ll share some benefits of wearing prescription sunglasses worth your consideration! 

Sunglasses guard against harsh wind, dust, sand, and other airborne debris that irritate the eyes or could scratch the cornea. Prescription sunglasses also reduce glare and keep you safe when navigating situations that require full attention, such as driving or riding a bike.

Prevent eye diseases
Exposure to UV radiation can increase the risk of cataracts, photokeratitis, macular degeneration, melanoma, and pterygium. Quality prescription sunglasses protect your eyes from UV radiation and can significantly reduce your risk of eye health and vision problems caused by sunlight.

Feel less eye strain and fewer headaches
Fifteen minutes in sunlight (a primary source of solar blue light) is equal to 10 hours of digital blue light, and exposure to blue light can cause eye strain and headaches. Quality prescription sunglasses should block 100 percent UV and solar blue light when outdoors.

Experience improved dark adaptation
Sunglasses increase visual clarity by blocking UV rays and reducing glare during the day. In addition to the daytime benefits of sunglasses, wearing high-quality polarized sunglasses can also help reduce night vision loss.

Enjoy a better, more comfortable outdoor experience, year-round
No need to squint, wear non-prescription sunglasses, or avoid the sun completely! Enjoy the comfort, clarity, and protection that come from prescription sunglasses.
