It is vital to protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. Sun damage is linked to macular degeneration, cataracts, and pterygium. We offer sunglass lenses that provide complete protection from UVA and UVB rays.
You won’t have to sacrifice clear vision for protection. We’ll make sure the shape of the sunglasses complements your face and you’ll be ready for an afternoon out on the town or beach in no time. We offer designer frames in a range of prices and styles. Whether you are into a classic, sport, or modern look, we are confident that you can find a great look for you. We carry sunglasses from Oakley, Maui Jim, RayBan, Nicole Miller, Fendi, and much more.
Light reflected from surfaces can create an annoying and dangerous intensity of light that we experience as glare. Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks this type of intense reflected light. Therefore, polarized sunglasses cut glare and haze so your eyes are more comfortable, contrast is enhanced, and you can see better. This greatly improves driving safety.
Photochromic / Transitions Lenses
We also offer photochromic lenses that automatically adjust with the light, so you can wear the same glasses in different light conditions. They quickly adapt from a perfectly clear indoor lens to a dark outdoor lens, offering a distinct advantage over ordinary clear lenses.
Sunglasses and Sunwear
While sunlight is a beautiful thing, too much of anything can be harmful. Sunglasses can prevent sun damage to the eyes, improve vision, and make a unique fashion statement. Much like our skin becomes sunburned, over-exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet or UV radiation can cause a variety of eye problems including cataracts, macular degeneration, non-cancerous growth, and even cancer of the eye and eyelids.
To protect your eyes and your vision, it is important to wear sunglasses when outside enjoying to sunshine. Ask your eyecare professional to make sure your sunglasses provide 100% protection from UVA and UVB rays.
Sunglasses are available with or without a prescription, and are often available with polarized lenses. Light reflected from surfaces such as a flat road or smooth water generally is horizontally polarized. Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks this type of intense reflected light, reducing glare for your eyes.
Polarized lenses have been popular for years with boaters and fishermen who need to reduce reflected glare from the water surrounding them. Outdoor enthusiasts who have also benefitted the most from polarized lenses include skiers, bikers, golfers, and joggers, all who may enjoy a clear view with elimination of glare.
