Sunglasses

Protect your vision against painful sunburn with high quality sunglasses that suit your style

Exposure to the sun’s UV rays for long periods can cause your eyes to feel sore and gritty. You protect your skin against harmful UV rays by applying sun cream, and your eyes need the same type of protection from high quality sunglasses.

Sun burn of the eye, better known as photokeratitis, can be extremely painful. Without the right protection, your eyes will feel sore, gritty and even appear red and teary. Extensive exposure to UV rays increases your chances of developing cataracts and can cause irreversible damage to the retina.

High quality sunglasses are designed to give your vision the vital protection it needs while ensuring that you can see clearly. It doesn’t matter whether you are sat on the beach or participating in sports, your vision still needs essential protection against harmful UV rays.

High quality sunglasses should:

  • Block out 99-100% of UV radiation
  • Screen out 75-90% light
  • Be free from distortion

As well as natural sunlight and reflections in water and snow, your vision is also at risk from artificial sources such as laser machinery and tanning beds. It’s impossible to tell just how much damage UV exposure causes to your vision, but wearing high quality sunglasses recommended by your optician will ensure you don’t find out.

Sunglasses are also a great fashion accessory that complements your style all year round. We understand how important it is for your eyewear to accentuate your own style and stock a wide range of high quality, stylish frames for you to choose from.
