Sunglasses and Safety Glasses
Some glasses are not just for better vision – special glasses can actually protect your eyes from ultraviolet rays, work hazards, and sporting injuries. At our Optical Center, we cater to adults and children by carrying a range of prescription and non-prescription glasses for protection:
- Sunglasses with 99-100% UV-A and UV-B protection
- Computer lenses to reduce glare
- Safety goggles and glasses with high impact resistance
- Sports glasses with polycarbonate lenses
Eye injuries can result from foreign bodies, grease or chemical splatters, penetrating trauma, and more. Overexposure to ultraviolet rays can lead to sunburn of the eye and accelerate vision problems later in life such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and eyelid cancers. Literally, thousands of eye injuries are reported each year. The important take away is that 90% of the workplace and sporting eye injuries are preventable by wearing the proper eye protection.
