Sunnies, Shades, Aviators, Glacier Glasses, Wayfarers!
Whatever you call them, make sure to wear them!
Besides looking cool, sunglasses are designed to protect your eyes from sunlight, but not all sunglasses lenses are equal.
100% UVA and UVB protection is an absolute must when it comes to sunglasses. Ultraviolet light is linked to cataracts, macular degeneration and skin cancer. All of our sunglasses have 100% UVA and UVB protection.
Beyond dark lenses helping to decrease the brightness of the sun, you’ll also want to look at polarized lenses, which will help with sun glare. Sun glare is the second leading environmental cause of car accidents (the first is ice)! If you’ve ever been driving to work in the morning and can’t see the tail lights of the car in front of you, you’ll know what we’re talking about. We’ll show you how polarization can help you see what you’re missing!
No offense to 80’s rock group ZZ Top, do not get yourself a pair of “cheap sunglasses!”
The eye protection, clarity of vision, quality and durability of lenses, and style of the frame does differ between a very good sunglasses manufacturer and something off the rack at the convenience store!
Your personal eyewear consultant will help you find that perfect summer (and rest of the year too) look!
Prescription lenses can be applied to most sunglasses and we can help you order a specific style if we don’t have them in the store.
