Sun Protection in Style
Sunglasses are timeless pillars of fashion and style. They’re also essential for protecting your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Overexposure to UV radiation has been linked to several eye problems, including cataracts, eye growths, and snow blindness. An easy way to protect your eye health is to wear sunglasses that block 100% UVA and UVB rays and see your optometrist for regular eye exams.
We know the importance of looking good in a comfortable, fashionable pair of shades that also provide you with the protection you need. So we carry a large selection of prescription and nonprescription sunglasses that suit all styles and budgets, from trendy to brand name and truly unique.
Children’s eyes are especially susceptible to the sun’s rays. Sun damage is cumulative, and even short-term exposure to UV radiation can compound over the years and lead to several eye problems later in life. Children also spend triple the amount of time outside than the average adult, and they are less capable of filtering UV light, meaning they’re at a greater risk of long-term, internal eye damage.
It’s estimated that nearly 80% of one’s lifetime UV exposure occurs before the age of 18. Fortunately, we carry a wide variety of fun, funky, and comfortable sunglasses kids just love to wear!
