We all love sunglasses. Not only do they offer protection against harmful UV rays, help when driving in the summer and are a must-have for reading on the beach, they’re also a much-loved fashion accessory.
We stock a wide range of sunglasses from the well known manufacturers like Oakley, Ray Ban Jimmy Choo and Maui Jim to the lesser known such as Inface and Orgreen amongst many others. We can make sunglasses to fit with your prescription but we stock many non-prescription brands, available to take away that day. So next time you’re thinking of treating yourself to some new shades, have a look at our range.
Don’t forget your children’s eye protection!
We’re all getting good at applying sunscreen but many people aren’t aware that young eyes are particularly susceptible to UV damage. Cumulative exposure to UV is one of the main risk factors for age related macular degeneration – the leading cause of sight loss in the UK. UV is also a risk factor for cataracts as well as eyelid tumours and pterygia.
Figures from the World Health Organisation estimate that as much as 80 per cent of a lifetimes’ UV is absorbed into the eye by the time a child reaches the age of 18. Now is the time to protect their eyes for life so make sure you invest in a good pair of sunnies for your kids. Talk to us about sunglasses for your little ones.
