Proper sunglasses are the first line of defence for your eyes against dangerous UV rays and blue light.
Sunglasses are eyes’ first line of defence from harmful UV and harmful blue light rays. At Eye Health Centres' three offices, we offer an extensive range of designer sunglasses 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 not only provides protection from the sun’s harmful rays, but also can accentuate, enhance, and complement their unique style. Sunglasses are 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 increase your visibility and thus your safety. Polarized sunglasses are also a great 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 providing the ultimate eye protection by visiting our optometrists or knowledgeable opticians in one of our optical boutiques in Calgary (Shawnee or Kensington) or Regina.
Our experienced staff and doctors will help you get the perfect fit with the best protection by selecting the right combination of tints and anti-glare made specifically for you to keep out stray light and glare. These sunglasses can be selected from our stylish frames even with your prescription.
We carry a wide selection of frames, from the industry’s most established designer brands to unique lines you won’t find anywhere else in the city.
