Stylish Shades with Optimal Sun Protection
Sunglasses aren’t only a cool, fashionable accessory, but they’re also essential for protecting your eyes while you’re outdoors.
Your eyes are designed to absorb light and turn it into images, but that means your eyes also absorb dangerous UVA and UVB rays that damage the ocular tissues. This damage is permanent and cumulative and can increase your risk of developing cataracts, eye cancer, corneal burns, or growths like pterygia or pinguecula.
Sunglasses are a trendy necessity, and high-quality lenses protect your eyes and provide superior clarity. At Blue Water Optometry, we carry a large selection of prescription and nonprescription sunglasses that offer 100% UV protection. Talk to one of our friendly opticians for help with finding the perfect pair!
Your sunglasses can feature:
- Anti-reflective coating that reduces glare and eyestrain, especially outdoors, on the water, or surrounded by snow.
- Photochromic lenses that automatically adjust to the brightness of your environment.
- Polarized lenses that filter out horizontal light that bounces off shiny surfaces (like water) to eliminate glare and create crisper, clearer images.
