You protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun with sunscreen. It’s also important to protect your eyes with sunglasses. Without proper eye protection, sun exposure can lead to irritation, blurred vision, and even cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
Sun exposure can not only cause irritated, red eyes and general discomfort, but it can also cause permanent damage. When your eyes are exposed to intense, bright light from the sun, retinal damage can occur, even if the exposure is brief. The sun’s UV rays have been linked to the development of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.
All sunglasses are not created equal. If your sunglasses say “UV protection” without a specific percentage, they may not be providing you with sufficient defence from UV damage. Make sure your sunglasses block 99-100% of UV-A and UV-B radiation and screen out 75-90% of visible light. We can recommend the best lenses to keep your eyes safe from the sun.
Don’t choose between seeing clearly or protecting your eyes from the sun. We offer a variety of sunglass lenses and frame options. Our team can help you choose the best lenses for your hobbies and the best frames for your lifestyle.
The cost of your sunglasses may be covered by your insurance provider. We offer direct billing to various insurance providers for your convenience, including:
