UV Protection for Your Eyes from Our Eye Doctors in Hot Springs AR

Using an effective UV protection for eyes is one of the best ways to ensure long-term eye health. Even those who aren’t bothered by the brightness of the sun need to be protected, contrary to what some people think. If you haven’t already found a routine way to protect your eyes in various stages of sunlight, a good way to start is to schedule time for you and your family to get comprehensive exams and protection recommendations at Holt Eye Clinic.

We have a wide variety of options to suit every vision level:

Stylish and Functional Sunglasses

Sunglasses are the most obvious way to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, but all sunglasses are not created equally. It’s important to be aware of the amount of protection offered by the glasses you choose, especially if you’re wearing prescription lenses.

  • Prescription – Prescription sunglasses have come a long way from when you had to keep switching from your eyeglasses to sunglasses whenever you walked outside. There are many choices in prescription lenses with solid UV protection. These days, you have the freedom to wear all the latest and most fashionable styles in sunglasses without compromising your vision.
  • Nonprescription – Many outdoor sports enthusiasts choose polarized sunglasses when they are engaged in activities like skiing or boating, as it helps to reduce the glare from water or snowy surfaces.  Using a polarized lens has a dual purpose of protecting eyes from the sun’s rays, as well as, increasing visibility, thereby improving sports performance and the level of enjoyment during outdoor play.

UV Blocking Contact Lenses

Sunlight is the main form of exposure to harmful Ultraviolet rays and the most dangerous type of UV rays, UVBs, requires strong protection in all types of outdoor light. UV blocking contact lenses provides all-weather coverage and surrounds the eye with protection while they’re improving your vision.
