Prescription & Designer Sunglasses

The sun’s powerful UV rays can have serious effects on your eyes: those with prolonged exposure may suffer macular degeneration, or even cataracts. Unfortunately, wearing shades can be uncomfortable or impossible for those who are already sporting a pair of eyeglasses. If you wear prescription eyeglasses, you should have a pair of sunglasses to match. At VIP Eyes, we can help you find the perfect pair to protect your vision (and make you look great!).

If you’re ready for the VIP experience with your prescription sunglasses, visit VIP Eyes today!

Why might I need prescription sunglasses?

Prescription sunglasses are simply sunglasses with prescription lenses, as opposed to a simple sheet of tinted glass or plastic. If you wear eyeglasses or carry a corrective prescription for any reason, you are eligible for prescription sunglasses. We always recommend that our eyeglass customers invest in a pair of sunglasses that fits their prescription.  It’s vital to protect your eyes from the sun, and those who wear glasses often have difficulty doing so over their existing frames.

Are prescription sunglasses expensive?

At VIP Eyes, we do everything we can to remove the obstacle of cost for our customers. We’re unique in the fact that we accept payment from a multitude of insurance providers in the state of Maine.

Are prescription sunglasses covered by insurance?
