Choosing the Right Polarized Lenses

Choose the Right Polarized Lenses

Polarized lenses are a great and easy way to protect your eyes. Thanks to advances in optometry, there are multiple choices when it comes to eyewear. If you are in Houston, TX, the optometrist at Executive Eye Care wants to help you find the best lenses for you, both medically and aesthetically.

Advantages of Polarized Lenses

Polarized lenses reduce glare, protecting your eyes from sunlight and other bright lights. These specialized lenses reduce eyestrain and make it easier to spend time outside without feeling blinded or developing eyestrain. Without polarized lenses, you may feel tired or have headaches when spending time outside.

Different Kinds of Polarized Lenses

The various polarized lenses are made of different materials and produce vastly different results. The less expensive polarized lenses are usually made of acrylic or acetate, have the most distortion, and scratch the easiest.

Polycarbonate lenses are more commonly used and are more scratch resistant but also have some distortion. You can also get lenses made of more expensive materials with all the advantages, including clear vision and resistance to scratches. Insurance will decrease the cost of polarized lenses because they help your eyes stay healthy.

We Can Help You Choose

Before purchasing polarized lenses, it's recommended to visit our optometrist. We can help you determine the most suitable options based on your eye health, visual needs, and lifestyle.

Lastly, while polarized lenses reduce glare and improve visual comfort, they may not suit all situations. For instance, polarized lenses can make it challenging to see certain digital screens, such as smartphones or car displays, so remember this when choosing your eyewear for different activities.

If you need polarized lenses or need to schedule basic eye care, call Executive Eye Care in Houston, TX. Our optometrist can help you find some polarized lenses you love.
