Choosing Sunglasses for UV Protection - Look Great and Protect those Beautiful Eyes!

Updated: Sep 11, 2023

Sunglasses aren't just a stylish accessory; they are essential for protecting your eyes from the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. At Laurier Optical, we prioritize your eye health, and here's why choosing the right sunglasses for UV protection matters:

Understanding UV Radiation

UV radiation from the sun can lead to eye conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, and photokeratitis. Prolonged exposure to UV rays without proper protection can significantly increase the risk of these conditions.

Look for UV-Blocking Lenses

When selecting sunglasses, ensure they provide 100% UV protection. Laurier Optical offers a wide range of sunglasses with UV-blocking lenses that shield your eyes from both UVA and UVB rays.

Polarized Lenses for Added Comfort

Consider polarized sunglasses, which not only block UV rays but also reduce glare and improve visual comfort. They are particularly beneficial for outdoor activities like driving, fishing, and sports.

Proper Fit and Coverage

Sunglasses should fit comfortably and provide adequate coverage to prevent UV rays from entering through the sides. Laurier Optical's expert staff can help you find sunglasses that fit your face shape and lifestyle.

Fashion Meets Function

Laurier Optical offers a stylish collection of UV protection sunglasses, so you don't have to compromise on fashion while safeguarding your eyes. Explore our selection to find sunglasses that match your style.

Regular Eye Exams

Regular eye exams at Laurier Optical are essential for monitoring your eye health. Our optometrists can detect any UV-related eye conditions early on and recommend appropriate treatments.

Protecting your eyes from UV radiation is a year-round commitment. Whether you're enjoying sunny days or snowy landscapes, Laurier Optical has the UV protection sunglasses you need to keep your eyes healthy and comfortable.
