There are SO many benefits to wearing sunglasses for style or for sports! They shield your eyes from the sun, dust, wind and also help reduce glare. Protecting your eyes from ultraviolet rays is important to decrease the risk of eye disorders such as eyelid cancer, cataracts, macular degeneration and more. Sunglasses are also a great way to express your style. Our office carries name brands such as Oakley, Wiley X, RayBan, Maui Jim and many others. Sunglasses should be worn year-round in our high altitude environment.
Sunglasses Lens Types
Polarized lenses contain a special filter that reduces glare, helping your see objects more clearly while also protecting your eyes from harmful UVA and UVB light. Gradient, solid, and specialized tints are also available.
Photochromic (Transition) lenses are eyeglass lenses that darken automatically when exposed to sunlight, then fade back when you return indoors. The molecules responsible for causing photochromic lenses to darken are activated by the sun’s ultraviolet radiation, making this an ideal lens for those who spend time outdoors.
Our optical offers the latest sports eyewear by Oakley, Wiley X, LibertySport, and Ray-Ban with corrected curve lens designs for wrap-around frames used in sports and outdoor activities. We even offer corrective lenses for your swimming goggles and dive mask.
