Polarized Prescription Sunglasses are the best!

So I finally broke down and purchased some prescription sunglasses after a very frustrating drive to work with the sun blinding me.  I own a pair of sunglasses, but I only wear them when I have my premium contact lenses in.  When I go to work, I wear my eyeglasses, which has meant that I have to deal with sun and glare on my commute to the office.  Well, no longer.  I bought a pair of sunglasses that I had my prescription put into so I can swap out my eyeglasses ...

So I finally broke down and purchased some prescription sunglasses after a very frustrating drive to work with the sun blinding me.  I own a pair of sunglasses, but I only wear them when I have my premium contact lenses in.  When I go to work, I wear my eyeglasses, which has meant that I have to deal with sun and glare on my commute to the office.  Well, no longer.  I bought a pair of sunglasses that I had my prescription put into so I can swap out my eyeglasses when I get in the car for a pair of prescription sunglasses.  The great part is that I didn’t get just any sunglasses.  I bought a pair of Columbia sunglasses, which are the most comfortable pair of eye wear that I have ever put on.

On top of buying a very comfortable pair of sunglasses, the prescription sun lens I put into these glasses was a polarized sun lens.  Talk about reducing glare.  Not only does it block the sun, but it blocks the glare from all objects and provides for excellent optics.  I didn’t realize this before because my basic pair of sunglasses are not polarized.  The drive to work is now crisp and clear optically, which is critical when DRIVING!

Based on this, I highly recommend that the next time you buy eye glasses that you also consider a prescription pair that are polarized.  You can thank me later.
