Are you thinking about getting a new pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses? If so, there is a bit more to think about than just making sure that you have an attractive eyeglass frame. You also want to make sure that your eyeglasses or sunglasses are as functional as they can be, to help you with your vision issues and eye safety. Sunglasses can be either prescription or nonprescription in nature. It is also important that Hazlet sunglasses are able to offer you complete UV protection from the harmful rays of the sun.
At our vision practice, Spare Pair Vision Center, we offer a very wide selection of eyeglass frames and Hazlet sunglasses. If you want to get prescription sunglasses, you can have a comprehensive vision exam at our vision center to make sure that you are getting eyeglasses with your latest vision prescription. Our expert eye doctors are: Dr. John Collini; Dr. Michelle Alcala; Dr. Alane Goldberg; Dr. Ron Lin; and Dr. Jonathan Gerard. Prescription sunglasses can block out 100% of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays for optimal eye protection. In fact, in order for your eyes to be protected, you will want to make sure that none of the sun’s harmful rays can get through to your eyes.
Studies have shown that overexposure to UVA and UVB rays has been associated with patients developing cataracts and macular degeneration as they age. It is very important to wear protective sunglasses not only in the warmer summer months, but also year-round. You will also want to make sure that you wear protective sunglasses not only when you are outside, but also while you are driving in your car. Your car’s windshield will not be able to screen out the UVA and UVB rays. You will also want to make sure that your children wear sunglasses whenever they are outside. Children are known to receive about 80% of their total lifetime exposure to UVA and UVB rays by the time they reach age 18. This is because a child’s eyes are very transparent and will easily absorb the sun’s harmful rays. At our vision practice, we have a wide selection of attractive and functional Hazlet sunglasses which will make you look great, and keep your eyes safe. Our optician will be able to discuss with you the benefits of different types of lenses. We look forward to seeing you at our Spare Pair Vision Center!
