UV Protection - Sunglasses

Sunglasses protect your eyes the way that sunscreen protects your skin.

Sunglasses are much more than a fashion statement protecting the eyes against harmful ultra violet rays that over time can damage the cornea, lens and retina and can cause cataracts.

In addition, glare can be uncomfortable, if not dangerous. Polarised lenses neutralise glare for better vision and comfort. Polarised lenses work like a venetian blind letting light in only at certain angles and allowing the eye to focus properly. Squinting, tired eyes, headaches and poor vision attributed to glare are eliminated.

Everyone is in the sun, children, teens, adults and retirees. Because the sun's damage is cumulative over a lifetime, it's never too early to start protecting eyes from the sun's rays. Sunglasses are for everyone. At the soccer game, gardening, walking in the park, playing in the snow, at the beach, driving in the car - almost every outdoor activity requires protective sunwear.

There are many types of sunglasses available. For the purchaser this can be confusing. At Visique Botany Optometrists we can recommend the best lens to relieve your symptoms.

Sunglasses are also available with corrective prescription. We also have the popular Convertibles frames, which are a stylish range of men's, women's and unisex frames, each with its own matching magnetised polarised clip-on sunglass. Visique Botany Optometrists will advise you on the best options.
