4 Ways To Make Wearing Eyeglasses More Comfortable This Summer

From unwanted glare to facial tan lines, wearing eyeglasses during the summer isn’t always comfortable or easy! Here are some simple tips to help keep your vision clear this upcoming season.


With spring and summer almost upon us, protecting your vision is more important than ever. Why? With the increased outdoor activity and sunlight, you must keep your eyes protected from UV rays because overexposure can have dangerous side effects, such as:

  • Retinal damage
  • Eye sunburn (photokeratitis)
  • Higher risk of developing AMD
  • Increased risk of cataract development

Whether you wear eyeglasses, contact lenses, or neither, it’s important to talk to your optometrist about how to protect your eye health and vision during this upcoming warm season.

4 Simple Tips For Wearing Eyeglasses This Summer

While the warmer weather and longer days promise a season full of activity, bright flowers, and parties, the heat also comes with inevitable problems for patients who wear eyeglasses, including unwanted glare and facial tans.

If you do find wearing eyeglasses uncomfortable during the summer, here are some tips that may help:

 

1. Choose The Right Frame

One of the easiest ways to make wearing eyeglasses comfortable this summer is by finding the right frame. The last thing you want to suffer through on a long and hot summer day is wearing a pair of heavy frames. So save yourself the discomfort and choose a pair of eyeglasses that is:

  • Lightweight
  • Made of metal
  • Rimless or part rimless
  • Bright colored
  • Well-fitted

Pro-Tip: If you aren’t sure how to pick the right pair of spectacles, talk to your optometrist. He/she has the expertise to help you find eyeglasses that will perfectly suit your lifestyle, needs, and face-shape.

2. Consider Contact Lenses

While the choice between eyeglasses and contact lenses is a personal one, and should always be made under the guidance of your optometrist, wearing contact lenses is a great alternative to traditional spectacles.

They come with many benefits, including:

  • Greater comfort
  • Improved field of vision
  • Unobstructed views
  • Greater safety when engaging in sports or other activities

Comprehensive Contact Lens Fittings

At Sunridge Eye Clinic, our optometrists offer comprehensive contact lens fittings to help you find the right contact lens and teach you about lens care so you can keep your eyes and vision safe.

3. Talk To Your Optometrist About Reading Sunglasses

During the summertime, nothing is better than lounging outdoors with a good book, but with the increased glare, this can prove to be difficult for patients who wear eyeglasses. However, you can talk to your optometrist about buying a pair of reading sunglasses.

These will:

  • Prevent you from squinting
  • Reduce eye strain
  • Minimize any long-term negative vision effects from reading in the sun
  • Lead to clearer and more comfortable vision

Pro-Tip: Before summer is in full swing, why not invest in a pair of reading sunglasses? The lenses are available in a range of reading prescriptions, so you can keep up with reading no matter where you are.

 

4. Keep Your Microfibre Cloth Handy

Unfortunately, there are some aspects of summertime that just can’t be avoided, such as sweat, tanning, and the inevitable fog that ends up on your lenses when you move from outdoors to indoors.

But there is a simple solution! Keep a microfibre cloth handy to polish your eyeglasses every time they collect some dirt or debris. It’s even better if you can purchase a few cloths and keep them wherever you’re likely to need them most, such as in the car, your desk, or your purse.
