Our dedicated staff assists our patients in finding designer prescription sunglasses that enhance their look and shield them from the sun's detrimental rays.


It is crucial for everyone, especially children, to prioritize wearing sunglasses. Considering that children spend more time outdoors than adults, it's worth noting that almost half of an individual's exposure to UV and dangerous blue light occurs before age 18. Eye Health Centres is committed to educating parents about the importance of sunglasses for their children's eye health and providing them with the right pair of prescription sunglasses.

Benefits of Wearing Sunglasses - Protect Your Eyes From Harmful UV Rays

Light tends to scatter in all directions, but when reflected, it travels in a polarized (uniform) manner. This means that reflected light is of a higher intensity, which causes glare and reduces visibility. This can be both frustrating and dangerous. For instance, when you’re driving on a sunny day, the sun’s glare reflecting from other vehicles can significantly reduce visibility and increase the dangers of driving. Polarized sunglasses eliminate this glare, which not only helps you to enjoy the vibrant colours of a beautiful day but will also increase your visibility and, thus, your safety. Polarized prescription sunglasses Calgary are also a better choice for people who enjoy spending time on the water or in the snow, which can cause tremendous glare. Wearing sunglasses offers your eyes a range of benefits, including:


  • Sunglasses protect you from UV rays, which can lead to serious eye damage over time after direct exposure.

  • Prescription sunglasses have lenses that can correct your vision and protect you from the sun.

  • Direct sunlight can trigger migraine attacks and intense headaches for some people - your sunglasses can help you avoid that.

You can read our blogs to explore sunglasses and other eye-related topics. ​Purchase sunglasses that meet your specific needs by visiting our optometrists in one of our optical boutiques in Calgary (Shawnee or Kensington) or Regina.

How to Find the Right Pair

To find the right pair of prescription sunglasses or any other eyewear, you need to consider a few things:


  • Discuss your needs: Communicate your specific needs and lifestyle to the eye care professional. Let them know about your outdoor activities and any specific concerns you have regarding your vision.

  • Lens options: Ask your eye care professional about the options available for prescription sunglasses.

  • Frame selection: Choose frames that suit your face shape, personal style, and comfort. Try on different styles and sizes to find the one that complements your features.

  • Lens coatings: Explore additional lens coatings that can enhance your sunglasses. Anti-reflective coatings minimize glare and improve visual clarity, while scratch-resistant coatings protect the lenses from scratches.

  • Fit and comfort: Ensure the sunglasses fit your face properly. The frames should be wide enough to provide sufficient coverage and protect your eyes from the sun's rays.


If you have any concerns about finding the right pair, consult our team of doctors.
