Protect Your Eyes With Polarized Sunglasses
At McDonald Optical, we highly recommend polarized sun lenses for your favorite pair of sunglasses. They are specialized sun lenses designed to reduce glare from surfaces such as water, snow, glass, and concrete. Glare distorts the true color of objects and makes them harder to distinguish. Polarized sunglasses can be especially beneficial for certain sports and for driving. We like to refer to polarized lenses as “Safety Driving Lenses” because they can help you see more clearly and avoid potential dangerous hazards. Blinding glare from horizontal light can be extremely uncomfortable and cause major eye strain. Polarized lenses protect your eyes from the harmful glare and are available in many different thinner and lighter lens materials to provide maximum comfort. We offer both prescription and non-prescription sunglasses as well as a variety of lens options to suit your needs (such as polarized lenses for glare protection).
McDonald optical has the largest selection of quality prescription and non-prescription sunglasses in Iowa City. We’re constantly adding new frames and styles, so be sure to check back often! Whether you wear corrective lenses or not, protecting your eyes from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays is a must this summer. After all, you already know the damage the sun’s rays can do to your skin when it’s not protected with sunscreen; now, consider the fact that your eyes are even more sensitive to the sun than your skin is! Failing to protect your eyes can result in a number of eye and vision problems, ranging from cataracts to macular degeneration.

If you’re thinking about ordering prescription sunglasses from us, be sure to schedule your annual eye exam first so we can be sure that your vision prescription is up-to-date. You should have at least one eye exam done every year for this reason and to stay on top of any changes in your eye and vision health.

Non-glare lenses also improve the cosmetic appearance of your glasses by reducing the reflections that mask your eyes when someone is looking at you, making your eyes look more natural. Better yet, most premium non-glare lenses are easier to clean and include a two-sided scratch resistant coating.
