FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions
Why Is UV Protection Required For Prescription Sunglasses?
UV radiation is highly damaging to our eyes. The 'ageing' damage is caused by UVA, whereas the 'burning' damage is caused by UVB. Sunglasses with a deep black tint may not always have or offer UV protection. The UV rating is generally marked on the (Plano) glasses and informs you about their protective qualities. The best sunglasses have a UV400 rating and have been proven to block out 99-100% UVA and UVB radiation. It would be best to never gaze directly into the sun with your sunglasses on.
Do Prescription Sunglasses Protect Your Eyes Against COVID-19?
While glasses may give some protection against COVID-19, the shielded region of the eye is the only protected area. The virus can still enter your eyes through your glass's exposed sides, tops, and bottoms. According to CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), you should take all necessary steps to avoid touching your eyes. The Ziena eyeglasses became the top brand for people working in the medical care industry. They have a magnetic eyecup acting as a moisture seal protecting your eyes, keeping airflow and the Covid-19 away from your eyes.
What Factors To Keep In Mind When Buying Prescription Sunglasses?
When purchasing prescription sunglasses, one of the first things to consider is your intended purpose. You may start narrowing down the pool of frames by figuring out how and when you'll be wearing them. "Will I be using it every day?" "Do I need this frame to play a certain sport?" "Does it require a safety rating for on-the-job?" are some things to consider. After analyzing your needs and intended use, you should have a more precise notion of what sort of frame is ideal for you.
Can You Turn Any Sunglasses Into Prescription Sunglasses?
The majority of sunglasses may be made into prescription sunglasses. There are specific exclusions defined by the frame and the individual's prescription. We provide our prescription-wearing customers with the best opportunity to fulfil their vision needs in the designs they prefer. Every frame we sell at shop.heavyglare.com has been hand-picked by our experts to meet Rx's needs best and match your lifestyle. We're confident that you're already one step closer to finding your perfect pair of prescription sunglasses, thanks to top brands like Ray-Ban, Wiley X, and 7eye by Panoptx.
Which Frames Work Well With Your Prescription?
Our online store comprises all sorts of frames that can accommodate your prescriptions. People with higher prescriptions should go for frames with a flat lens. Feel free to reach out to our customer service for those who are unsure, and we will help you find the right pair of glasses.
How To Read And Understand Your Prescription?
The eyeglass prescriptions are typically written in a grid with scientific terms, abbreviations, and numbers. Remember, the further the numbers are from zero, the more correction you need. A+ symbolizes farsightedness, and A- which represents nearsightedness. Other abbreviations are stated below:
OD – Oculus Dexter, which means right eye.
OS – Oculus Sinister, which means left eye.
SPH (Sphere) – Eyeglass prescription power.
CYL (Cylinder) – Astigmatism is an imperfection in the eye's curvature.
AXIS – The degree and direction of your astigmatism need correction.
ADD – Add Power is the magnifying power in the lower part of a multi-focal lens.
What Is PD?
PD stands for Pupillary Distance. It is the distance between your pupils which is measured in millimeters. It is needed to input your prescription accurately. It is necessary to determine the Pupillary Distance (PD) before your prescription lenses are cut into the shape of your frames. This measurement is then used to align the optical center of each lens with your pupils to provide the best possible visual clarity for each user. In general, PD measurements fall from 48mm to 73mm. The most common measurements are between 58mm and 68mm.
Is It Safe To Wear Prescription Sunglasses While Driving?
Absolutely! We encourage people to wear prescription sunglasses while driving during the day. You should consider a transitions lens that lightens to a clear transparent lens in the early mornings or late at night if you are driving at night. Even if you're not driving, prescription sunglasses might come in useful. Rx sunglasses will improve your vision, protect you from dangerous UV radiation, and shield you from intense solar reflections that might cause you to lose focus while on the road.
Should You Wear Prescription Sunglasses With Contacts?
Prescription sunglasses should not be worn when wearing prescription contact lenses. Prescription contacts already function to improve your vision. As a result, you may get headaches, eye strain, or even vision loss. If you decide to wear contact lenses, we recommend investing in a pair of high-quality non-prescription sunglasses or safety glasses.
Is It Possible To Harm My Eyes By Using The Wrong Lenses?
Clinical data does not support the idea of damaging your eyes by staring through glasses with an incorrect prescription or pupillary distance configuration. As a result, some people may suffer from headaches, dizziness, double vision, or vertigo (particularly those with more significant corrections). These consequences might be harmful if you're driving, using machinery, or otherwise relying on your spectacles for your safety or the safety of other people. With a new pair of prescription eyeglasses or prescription, you may encounter some of these side effects. Your eyes get tired and are accustomed to your old prescription. Acclimation periods depend on the individual. A first-time progressive wearer may need up to three weeks to adjust. But usually, it will take less than a day. It would be best to start wearing your glasses with the new prescription the first morning.
Do You Have Prescription Safety Goggles For Sale At Your Store?
At Heavyglare Eyewear, we do sell safety goggles and safety glasses. Depending on your work, there are many different safety glasses available.
Is It Possible To Have An Eye Examination At Your Office?
You can bring in your current prescription to have it filled at our opticians; however, we do not provide eye examinations.
When You Say Digital Prescription Lenses, What Exactly Do You Mean?
A digital prescription lens from Heavyglare Eyewear is made utilizing the latest in direct digital surfacing processes, so you can be confident you're receiving the best. It's one of the most exciting advances in modern personal optics: digital surfacing prescription lenses.
What's The Difference Between Digital Surfaced and Normal or Traditional Lens Designs?
When using standard lenses, the peripheral portions of the lenses become fuzzy or blurry. A higher visual acuity is achieved by wearing digitally surfaced sunglass lenses. In this way, the lenses thickness is kept at the rear rather than in the front. A considerably bigger viewing area is possible with digitally surfaced sunglass lenses since they are milled from behind.
How Does This Technology Differ From Previous Ones?
Digitally surfaced lenses utilize the latest technologies to create a lens with an aspheric/atoric backside. In other words, the lens's curvature rate varies from the lens's center outward to compensate for the change in distance and angle between your eye and various spots on it, maximizing the prescription across the lens.
Unlike standard progressives, these lenses have a gradual insertion of a multi-focal lens on the rear of the lens. We are putting the reading addition closer to the eye, allowing for a broader range of useable viewing angles. Specific versions go one step further and customize your eye's distance from far vision to close vision based on the frame specifications. Wrapped frames may be fitted with stronger prescriptions than ever before, helping single-vision and progressive wearers alike. Using this new technique, we can now produce lenses with a.01 diopter tolerance, compared to.12 diopters in the past.
What Can I Do To Extend The Life Of My Eyeglasses If I Want To?
Keep your eyeglasses in good condition by following these tips:
Instead of buying new frames every time your child's prescription changes, ask for fresh lenses placed in the existing frames.
A spring hinge allows the temples to bend slightly outward without damaging the spectacles.
Lenses should be coated with a premium anti-reflective coating. Hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings make cleaning easier and help keep your lenses from scratching.
Damage to anti-reflective coating is caused mainly by improper care, leading to visual problems. Follow the care recommendations provided. Be sure your lenses are free of any grit before cleaning. Rinsing them off with tap water is a good start. Always use a cleaning cloth, not your t-shirt. You need to make sure there is no debris on the fabric, or the lenses will get scratched. You can launder good cleaning clothes, but don't use a fabric softener on the cloth, or it will smudge the lenses.
FSA & HSA Dollars - What Are They?
You can set away pre-tax funds to pay for qualifying medical expenditures in these plans. You may be able to use your FSA/HSA fund to pay for prescription eyeglasses, including prescription sunglasses and goggles.
