Ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause damage to many ocular structures. Protecting your eyes against UV rays is essential to the overall health of your eyes. Just like wearing sunscreen is essential to protecting your skin, wearing sunglasses protects your eyes against harmful UV rays.
Wearing sunglasses can also help prevent the occurrence of or slow the progression of many eye diseases such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and cancer.
Look for sunglasses that provide 100% UV protection. One of our trained opticians will help you find the perfect fit to help protect your eyes.
Sunglasses can also help eliminate the glare created by light that reflects off surfaces. This is especially useful for patients that drive a lot, play sports or other outdoor activities. These special lenses are polarized lenses.
Light that is reflected off surfaces such as water, or windshields or asphalt enters the eye in a horizontal direction. This creates glare that is not only irritating but can also interfere with vision.
Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks this reflected light. The end result is glare-free, sharp and comfortable vision. Make sure to ask one of our trained opticians about Polarized lenses.
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause damaged to many ocular structures. Protecting your eyes against UV rays is essential to the overall health of your eyes. Sunglasses provide optimal protection for your eyes against UV rays.
Prescription sunglasses not only provide UV protection but also give you clear, comfortable vision. They are available in many colors and selections including polarized lenses.
