There is no denying there is a certain coolness factor to sunglasses. Where would ZZ Top, Tom Cruise, and The Blues Brothers be without their shades ? But sunglasses are much more than fashion. They are an important component of caring for your eyes and your long term vision health.
You don’t need to be a celebrity to look good in sunglasses. Our clinic carries a large selection of sunglasses from all the leading designers.
Whether it’s just protection from the sun you are looking for or to cultivate your hipster image we have the sunglasses for you .
EYE PROTECTION FROM THE SUN IS NECESSARY
Ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage the eye. Surface changes to the white of the eye like pinguecula and pterygium are due to UV light over time. Cataracts can occur 10-15 years earlier without adequate protection from the sun. Light coloured eyes tend to be more sensitive to light.
Prescription sunglasses can be provided in most of the sun glass frames we offer.
Polarized lenses are ideal if you are an avid fisherman, sailor, or paddler. They cut the surface reflection from the water and allow you to see the fish better and avoid rocks when boating.
Be careful when buying sunglasses. Sunglasses should enhance your vision not distort it. Cheap sunglasses can look good but sometimes the lenses are of inferior quality, are warped and not sharp edge to edge. Make sure you look through them before you buy.
Good quality sunglasses do not have to be expensive. We offer economical sunglasses and Designer sunglasses at an affordable price that will be less than you will pay for the same glasses online or at a sun glass boutique.
