Over-exposure

Over-exposure to UV light can damage your eyes as well as your skin. It may lead to cataracts and can prematurely age your retina, causing reduced vision in later life.

It’s therefore essential to choose sunglasses that are not only stylish, but have optical quality lenses and a UV filter.

Prescription sunglasses

If you already wear glasses, you can still wear quality sunglasses. We stock many brands which can be made up to your individual prescription. They can carry single vision, bifocal or varifocal lenses. They are also available with polarised lenses which cut out glare and haze and give much clearer vision or photochromic lenses, which have a light tint indoors, yet darken in sunlight.

Styles of sunglasses

Specific situations sometimes call for specific styles of sunglasses. If you do a lot of driving, or are keen on sports such as golf, cycling or watersports, there are particular frames and lenses which would help you see clearer in sunlight.
