Most people think of sunglasses as a fashion accessory, and while they have become a popular must-have – especially in the sunny seasons – they play an important role when it comes to keeping your eyes healthy.
When the sun makes a rare appearance we all reach for the sun cream to protect our skin. However, did you know that ultraviolet rays can also cause short and long-term problems for your eyes if they’re left unprotected?
“UVA & UVB are two of three types of radiation emitted from the sun. While they are most harmful on sunny days, they’re present in all weather conditions, including when it’s raining or overcast.”
Pam Greening, Receptionist
At Insight Opticians we have a wide range of sunglasses for you to choose from, including the latest collections from top designers Ray-Ban, Tag Heuer and Tom Ford. Many of the sunglasses we supply can be fitted with your prescription, and also offer complete protection from harmful glare from the sun.
