Protect & Enhance Your Vision
Sunglasses are more than just a fashion statement. They protect your eyes from UV rays and sun damage. In the short-term, the sun can cause the discomfort of ocular sunburn. In the long-term, sun exposure has been linked to cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
Choosing the Right Sunglasses
The right sunglasses for your eyes should have 99 to 100% UVA and UVB protection. They should also screen 75 to 90% of visible light. Polarization is another aspect to consider. It’s especially helpful in harsh outdoor lighting conditions, like sunlight reflecting off of water or snow. Polarized lenses also enhance colours and image clarity.
To protect your eyes properly from the sun, you should never have to choose between sunglasses or clear vision. We offer a variety of fashionable, protective sunglass frames and lenses available with a prescription.
