If you’re chronically covered in specs, but have never experienced the joys of prescription sunglasses, you’re in for a real treat.

No one has to remind you of the little conveniences that you experience because you need glasses. You’ve probably done everything that all of us have—misplaced them, stepped on them, lost that one tiny little screw that holds the whole thing together…Let’s face it, glasses can be a pain.

Two pairs of glasses is just double the trouble. Carrying and switching between two sets all day long is an endless lesson in frustration, but it’s how most people who wear glasses live when they don’t have a set of prescription sunglasses.

Here are some of the things you’re missing, and how life will be different if you invest in a set of vision sunglasses today.

No More Switching—See All the Time

Ready for a long day at the beach? A walk to the Bistro? You can expect the sun to get in your eyes, but you’ll need to switch back to your normal glasses to check out signs and prices, or to hold a conversation with friends you meet on the street.

That isn’t the case when you’re rocking prescriptions sunglasses. You’ll enjoy a complete spectrum of protection in addition to being able to operate everything you need to, from bikes to checkout lanes without fumbling around to switch your glasses.

When you experience this freedom for the first time, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.

Lighten Your Load

Once you’ve gotten used to not bothering with switching out your specs, it’s time to head to the next level of convenience. Enjoy the freedom of bringing only one pair wherever you go! Plan ahead to lighten your load and bring only the pair you need. With proper planning, you’ll have the right pair for the job, and the pocket real estate too.

Leaving your main pair at home is also a precaution against losing both pairs if you want to take your prescription sunglasses somewhere adventurous, such as a whitewater rafting trip! You should invest in a back-up pair in the first place, so why not invest in one with a strong purpose?

Let Your Outfit Match Your Eyes

Now that you’ve got a solid set of prescription sunglasses, you get to start building your wardrobe around it. Remember, you no longer have to take off your sunglasses for most tasks, so you’ll enjoy the right to match the perfect outfit to your shades.

Even at our location, there are nearly hundreds of different kinds of sunglasses frames to choose from. You should be able to easily find a pair that matches your personal style, and the kind of look you want to show to the world.
