Sunglasses are eyes’ first line of defence from harmful UV and harmful blue light rays. Whether you are going shopping or for a picnic, enhance your look with a stylish pair of sunglasses. At Eye Health Centres' three offices, we offer a wide range of designer sunglasses in Calgary and Regina. They are available in various colours, shapes, sizes, and styles to suit the unique look of our diverse patients. Our staff loves working with our patients to help them find eyewear that can provide protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Sunglasses are considered important for everyone, especially children. Children spend more time outside compared to adults, and most experts estimate that almost half of a person’s UV and dangerous blue light exposure will take place before the ages of 18. Children are three to six times more at risk than adults!
Light tends to scatter in all directions, but when it’s reflected, it travels in a polarized (uniform) manner. This means that reflected light is of a higher intensity, which causes glare and reduces visibility. This can be both frustrating and very dangerous. For instance, when you’re driving on a sunny day, the sun’s glare reflecting off of other vehicles can significantly reduce visibility and increase the dangers of driving. Polarized sunglasses eliminate this glare, which not only helps you to enjoy the vibrant colours of a beautiful day, but will also increase your visibility and thus your safety. Polarized sunglasses are also a better choice for people who enjoy spending time on the water or in the snow, which can cause tremendous glare. Purchase sunglasses that meet your specific needs by visiting our optometrists in one of our optical boutiques in Calgary (Shawnee or Kensington) or Regina.
Our experienced staff and doctors will help you find suitable polarized sunglasses for your protection. These sunglasses can be selected from our frames with your prescription.
