Polycarbonate is a lens material that is widely used for shatter-and-impact resistant lenses, and when combined with sturdy frame materials, makes for formidable eye protection.

There are hazards of sunlight and bright light that are harder to understand; namely, ultraviolet rays (UV) and Glare (extreme brightness). Protecting your eyes from these distracting, even dangerous elements is equally important to eye protection.

According to the National Optometric Association (NOA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC), it is strongly recommended that all non-urgent optometric care be suspended at this time.  Therefore we will be closed starting March 18th, 2020.  We will remain closed until we are advised to reopen.  If you have an urgent matter, eye emergency, or are in need of assistance, we are always willing to help in any way possible.  Please call the office at 702-456-9585 for updated instructions.
