Why should I look for sunglasses near me?

Opticians, as well as many health professionals, recommend that you wear sunglasses to provide comfort from bright lights, but more importantly for UV protection.

All of our sunglasses provide 100% UV protection from both UVA & UVB.

We sell non-prescription sunglasses which you can take away the same day, we also sell prescription sunglasses which will be custom made with your prescription.

We stock a wide variety of sunglasses including designers Maui Jim & Rayban. We also stock clip on sunglasses which can fit onto your current spectacles.


Why You Should Wear Sunglasses

According to a 2012 survey, nearly 90% of people believe that protecting their eyes is key to overall health. But most people who choose to wear sunglasses do so only to cut down on the sun’s glare.

There are many more reasons why you should wear sunglasses more often, especially when you’re enjoying the outdoors during the summer. Take a look at our diagram and click on a benefit to find out more!

No More Dry Eyes

Sunglasses can help prevent your eyes from drying due to outside elements, such as weather, dust and debris.

Help Combat Allergies

Wearing sunglasses can reduce strain on your eyes and sooth your face and body.

Block UV Rays

Prolonged exposure to UV rays can cause irreparable damage to your eyes. Wearing sunglasses can help to slow down eye issues, such as macular degeneration.

Reduce Migraines

Bright sunlight can be a trigger for migraines and bad headaches. Wearing sunglasses can help reduce both the frequency and intensity of these painful occurrences.


You’ll not only be keeping your eyes healthy and safe, but you’ll have more fun outdoors and you’ll even look great!
