“RX-able” sunglasses are sunglass frames that can accept a prescription lens. Not all sunglass brands are designed to hold a prescription lens, and are called “non RX-able”.
Sunglass frames with an excessive wrap design can only accommodate prescription lenses up to a power of approximately +/-5.00 sphere, but it really needs to be evaluated on a ‘frame by frame’ basis. Other factors such as astigmatism, can further complicate the frame selection. Often sunglass outlets (who do not have access to trained eye care professionals) find it difficult to recommend a sunglass frame that would be suitable for fitting of prescription lenses.
It is not possible to put a prescription in sunglasses with a shield design. Some sunglass manufacturers like Maui Jim have facilities to make prescription lenses for their own frames.
At Oakville Optometry you can be assured of receiving the very best advice in the selection of your prescription sunglasses for your specific requirements.
