ADS Sports Eyewear Focuses on Higher Prescription Sunglasses

Share Article

ADS Sports Eyewear set up a unique web page where people with stronger prescriptions can find wrap-style sunglasses. Prescription sunglasses featured on this page are slightly flatter than traditional 8-base sunglasses. But most frames are very compatible with sporting activities like running and cycling.

Prescription Sunglasses have always been out of reach for patients with higher prescriptions unless they could settle for flatter frames that look like everyday eyewear. This was never a good solution for active people who want UV protection from all angles. New digital surfacing technology and special edging equipment has allowed ADS Sports Eyewear to overcome the obstacles that prevented these patients from getting the UV protection they need.

Many of the sunglasses selected for this High Rx page on the ADS Sports Eyewear web site are very sporty and perfect for runners and cyclists. An obvious advantage that these sunglasses have for people with stronger prescriptions is that the temples are taller. This feature helps hide the thickness of the prescription lens and keeps unwanted light from constricting the pupil. Six-base sunglasses look very much like an 8-base, wrap-around style frame and are less likely to fog up than some sunglasses.

Traditional 6-base frames that have previously been unavailable in prescriptions higher than -3.00 Diopters are now available up to -8.00 Diopters. Oakley has many of the most popular designs for these higher prescriptions. The lightweight Oakley Gascan is one of Oakley’s most popular styles, and is also a great choice for people with stronger prescriptions. It has a comfortable fit in a frame made from recycled materials. This page for higher prescription wearers can be found on the ADS Sports Eyewear website by clicking “6-Base Sunglasses (for High Rx)".

Located in the North Dallas area of Texas, ADS Sports Eyewear has sold high-end prescription sunglasses, eyewear and ski goggles for over 10 years. The ADS Sports Eyewear staff not only understands sports eyewear, they also did all the testing that is quoted on the ADS Sports Eyewear web site.
