Types of Sunglass Lenses

Be sure your sunglasses are doing their job by choosing the best lenses for your lifestyle—and your style.


Polarized Lenses

Polarized lenses are highly effective in cutting glare. The polarized coating creates a filter that blocks light bouncing off flat surfaces and water, so you can see more clearly. They’re a great choice for driving.

Mirrored Lenses

Mirrored lenses make a cool fashion statement, and they also reflect light, so you can see more clearly. They don’t provide as much clarity and contrast as polarized lenses, but they’ll keep your eyes comfortable and protected.

Prescription Sun Lenses

Prescription sun lenses are a great choice if you need vision correction. You can add prescription lenses to most sunglass frames so you can be outside in the sun and function. Prescription sunglass lenses can be upgraded with polarized coating for added protection. Visit your nearest Eyeglass World store to learn more.
