Finding the Right Prescription Sunglasses
You should feel as comfortable shopping for prescription sunglasses as you would ordering a new pair of eyeglasses. Prescription shades are quite popular and come in nearly endless styles and brands. Whether you have a visual impairment or not, once you own a pair of prescription sunglasses, you'll wonder how you ever lived without them!
Buying a pair of prescription sunglasses is as easy as buying a pair of eyeglasses, with the added steps of deciding whether you want polarization, and what kind of tint you want in your lenses. If you've purchased eyeglasses and sunglasses separately, you already know all of the steps, and you'll simply combine them. If you already have a pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses frames you love, it's likely we can add prescription sunglass lenses to them, or you can order a new pair of those same frames with prescription sunglass lenses. But first, come to Langley Optometry Clinic and feast your eyes on our prescription designer sunglasses.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can any sunglasses be made into prescription sunglasses?
Most, not all, modern sunglasses can be made with prescription lenses. Your best option for finding your favourite sunglasses in prescription-ready form is to come to Langley Optometry Clinic and look at our vast selection. We offer hundreds of prescription sunglasses as well as prescription designer sunglasses from the biggest eyewear designers.
Can I update my favourite sunglasses with a new prescription?
Yes, Langley Optometry Clinic is able to fit most modern sunglasses with prescription sunglass lenses. To order prescription lenses for your sunglasses, speak with one of our trained opticians, and we’ll guide you through each step of getting prescription sunglass lenses made to fit your favourite sunglass frames.
How do I know which prescription to get?
The prescription is the same as for regular prescription glasses. Also, the frame size measurements for prescription sunglasses are the same as for regular prescription glasses or conventional sunglasses. Most sunglasses or eyeglasses include measurements printed on the frame. If you have an existing pair of glasses that fit well, you can use the measurements on them to find the same frame size for your prescription sunglasses.
Why do I need prescription sunglasses?
They are especially useful if you have trouble seeing objects from afar and you're walking outdoors or driving on a sunny day. They eliminate glare and the need for squinting in bright conditions, otherwise, your vision would be reduced and would cause eye strain. Prescription sunglasses can block 100% of the sun's UV rays, protecting your eyes from potential cataracts and other damaging effects of those rays.
Moreover, many prescription sunglasses are available with polarized lenses, which greatly reduce glare and improve visual clarity. Another reason might be that you’re paranoid about not having a backup pair. It’s hard to understand how crucial a backup pair is until you need it, especially during vacations and important events.
What type of lenses can I get in sunglasses?
Prescription sunglasses are made in the same way eyeglasses are made, with the additional step of adding a tinted lens and possibly a polarized coating. Prescription sunglasses can be as dark or light as the darkest or lightest lenses offered.
Prescription sunglasses that are also polarized are common. On polarized sunglasses, the filter creates vertical openings for light, so that only light rays that approach your eyes vertically can go through those openings, and all the horizontal light waves are blocked which reduces horizontal glare.
