The most important points to take into account when choosing a pair of sunglasses are the fit of the frame (to ensure the correct coverage of the eye) and the type of lens that you require.
Our qualified Dispensing Optician will spend time discussing all the different types of the lenses available.
These will include tinted lenses with a UV coating, photochromic or transition lenses, polarizing lenses and lenses specifically designed for driving.
The eyes readily absorb UV radiation. At the point radiation is absorbed its energy is transferred to the tissues and has potential to do damage. UV damage to the Cornea causes Cataract formation in the Lens and premature Macula Degeneration in the Retina.
Exposure to UV radiation occurs through both direct exposure to sunlight and through indirect sources such as radiation reflected off snow, water and even sand.
We supply many different ranges and styles of prescription sunglasses.
The planned usage of your prescription sunglasses is a very important part of the discussion as we can provide sunglasses simply for daily usage such as driving or specific sports designs for use in the sporting environment.
With modern lens technology we can provide individually designed sun protection with your visual correction incorporated. This will give you excellent vision and more importantly protect your eyes.
