What to Look for in Women's Prescription Sunglasses

When shopping for women's prescription sunglasses, there are a few key components to consider. Let's review which features to look for when comparing prescription sunglasses for women and how to choose the right pair.

Frame Style

From fashionable aviators and cat-eyes to performance sports sunglasses, your frames are an extension of your lifestyle. How and when you plan on wearing your women's Rx sunglasses will play a key role in determining what type of frame to consider. For athletes, frame materials like nylon, Grilamid, and Oakley's O Matter™ are lightweight and durable to keep you focused on the game. Wrap around designs will provide the coverage you need from harmful UV rays and a wide field of vision to watch the terrain.

Are you a female athlete looking for a performance-ready design? Be sure to check out our list for the Best Prescription Sport Sunglasses for Women.

If you're in the market for a basic everyday frame, there is a plethora of options at your fingertips. Look for materials like acetate frames, which provide a featherweight feel with slightly translucent colors that dazzle in the sunlight. Metal frames are also a popular choice for their elegance and easy wearability. You can also amp up the versatility with nylon styles that double for a weekend brunch or soccer scrimmage.

Lens Technology

There is a lens color and technology for every preference. Select from all colors of the rainbow with mirrors, gradients, and polarization. Transition lenses are also a popular choice for their versatility. And since we're talking about the best women's prescription sunglasses, all these lens options are available in Rx! To discover some of our opticians' favorite Rx-able lens technologies, check out the links below:
