CHOOSING GLASSES FOR YOUR LIFESTYLE
Whether you’re an athlete, a student, or lawyer, choosing the right glasses will help you see your best. From tints to new technology, discover all the ways you can see the world in greater clarity—the way you were meant to see it.
FOR THE WEEKEND ATHLETE
If you live an active lifestyle, choosing the right glasses is particularly important. Depending on how much time you spend participating in sports and outdoor activities, for the best comfort, performance, and safety during active and leisurewear, choose at least one pair of sports sunglasses, sports eyeglasses, or even just a more casual frame.
Sports eyewear has optimal fit and comfort and is made to withstand impact. Some sport-specific lenses are also available for a variety of activities, including golf, running, cycling, and water sports. For indoor activities, consider clear prescription performance glasses. Yosemite Eyewear also carries more durable lenses with anti-scratch protection—so your lens lasts.
A knowledgeable optician can help you choose the best eyeglass frames and lens option for your sports vision and active lifestyle needs.
ON THE COMPUTER
In today’s online world, people spend eight or more hours a day in front of their computers. And while you’re working, your eyes are hard at work too. The strain from hyper-focusing on the screen can cause eye fatigue, headaches, and even neck, shoulder, and back pain.
To avoid these uncomfortable symptoms consider:
Choosing glasses with blue light filtering lenses.
Lenses reduce the effects of blue light, helping you squint less, putting less strain on your eyes, and making for a more comfortable and productive workday.
The 20/20 rule
Try your best to remember to follow the 20-20-20 rule. Set a timer to remind you to look away every 20 minutes at an object that is about 20 feet away for a full 20 seconds.
If your lifestyle takes you outside often, protect your eyes from the sun’s damaging rays by choosing eyeglasses with transition lenses or a pair of prescription sunglasses. Not only will they keep your eyes healthy, but they’ll eliminate the amount of reflecting light that enters the eye. Polarized lenses not only reduce glare, they make images appear sharper and clearer, increasing visual clarity and comfort.
Any prescription can be fit into the sunglasses of your choice so you’ll always be able to see your best.
Your eyeglasses should improve your everyday life, and knowing how to choose glasses for your lifestyle, whether it’s spent in front of a computer or under the sun will help you see and look your best. Once you have your prescription, a Yosemite Eyewear licensed optician can assist you in choosing eyeglasses equipped with lenses specific to your lifestyle.
