Sunglasses FAQ

Sunglasses FAQ

Sunglasses are more than just a fashion statement. They are tools that can help protect your eyes from the wind and sun. Whether you are interested in a pair of sunglasses to tie an outfit together or to reduce eyestrain during your commute, we at Kueber Eye Care, serving Park Rapids, MN, are here to help.


Should Everyone Wear Sunglasses?

Sunglasses can benefit almost anyone who spends time outdoors or near windows where the sun is shining. Those who work on the water or in the snow might find sunglasses especially useful because of all the glare. Even if you work at an office all day, getting sunglasses can still protect your eyes while you are driving to and from work.

Are There Different Lenses?

While most of the versions you see in the stores are similar, an optometrist on our optometry team may be able to offer you more options, some of which may be better suited if you participate in certain hobbies.

Polarized lenses reduce glare, making them an excellent option if you ski, fish, or snowboard. The color of the lenses might also make a difference depending on the activity that you intend to do while wearing the sunglasses. You might want different colors depending on if you’ll be on the water, in the snow, on the beach, or in other situations.

Can I Get Sunglasses that also Correct My Vision?

Yes, you can get prescription sunglasses. This means that you do not have to keep switching between different glasses to correct your vision. It also means you can keep your eyes protected while reading in the bright sunlight. If you want prescription sunglasses from an optometrist on our optometry team, give us a call.
