Find the perfect sunglasses to help you to look great whilst keeping your eyes protected
You know the importance of protecting your skin from too much sun exposure, but did you know it’s equally essential to protect your eyes?
The best way to protect your eyes from the sun is to wear sunglasses that filter out harmful UV rays. These rays can cause a variety of short and long term conditions ranging from a temporary but painful ‘sunburn’ to permanent eyesight deterioration, and even blindness.
At Scher & Lasky Opticians we stock a wide range of sunglasses, including designs by Ray-Ban, Oakley, Tom Ford, Michael Kors and Prada. All of our frames have the CE quality control mark and meet the European standard for sunglasses protection; all to ensure your eyes are safe from UV damage.
If you need any assistance in selecting the most suitable pair of sunspecs for you, our friendly, expert staff are always on hand to advise you on the latest styles of eyewear.
Sunglasses typically block between 50-85% of visible light. It is therefore worth considering where you will mostly be wearing them to determine what tint they should have. For example, if you are on the beach they should block around 85% of light. However, if you spend a lot of time driving, it would be safer to wear glasses that allow more visible light through.
If you have a current prescription this can also be applied to your sunglasses. We are able to fit prescription lenses to almost any of the sunglasses in our practice, allowing you maximum comfort whatever the weather!
