Sunglasses

Ensure your vision is protected while you enjoy the sun

 

Protecting your eyes is just as important as protecting your skin. It’s impossible to tell just how much damage UV rays can cause over time, but wearing high quality sunglasses will ensure that you don’t find out.

Your eyes need constant protection against harmful UV rays. There are a number of ways that UV rays can damage your vision including natural sunlight, reflections in water and snow and artificial sources, such as laser machinery and tanning beds.

UVA and UVB rays have an adverse effect on your eyes and both short and long term exposure can be extremely harmful.

Repeated exposure to UV rays without protection can contribute to eye diseases such as cataracts. With this in mind, it’s vital that you endeavour to wear protective sunglasses. This also applies to people that wear contact lenses. Even contact lenses that have UV protection can’t protect your eyes as well as high quality sunglasses.

We highly recommend our range of prescription sunglasses for people that wear spectacles and contact lenses. These fantastic sunglasses enable you to enjoy crisp, clear vision while protecting your eyes against harmful UV radiation. Based on your vision requirements, we’ll create the lenses that offer you clarity and protection.

SunglassesYou will also benefit from transition sunglasses. They’re ideal for anyone that is constantly on the go and spends an equal amount of time indoors and outdoors. The lenses are designed to give you clear vision and alter depending on the light of your surroundings. If it’s a bright sunny day outside, the lenses will appear as sunglasses and give your eyes excellent protection against UV rays. As soon as you step indoors, the lenses will change so that you can see clearly and don’t have to change your eyewear to suit your surroundings.
