Wide Selection of Designer Sunglasses in Calgary
Sunglasses are the 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!
Benefits of Wearing Sunglasses - Protect Your Eyes From Harmful UV Rays
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. Wearing sunglasses offers your eyes a range of benefits, including:
Sunglasses protect you from UV rays, which can lead to serious eye damage over time after direct exposure
Prescription sunglasses come with lenses that can correct your vision in addition to protecting you from the sun.
Direct sunlight can trigger migraine attacks and intense headaches for some people - your sunglasses can help you avoid that.
Purchase sunglasses that meet your specific needs by visiting our optometrists in one of our optical boutiques in Calgary (Shawnee or Kensington) or Regina.
Choices of Sunglass Lenses
Sunglass lenses are available in different types that offer different looks and benefits. Here are some common types of sunglass lenses and the benefits they offer:
Tinted glasses - These lenses are best for protecting you from UV rays and provide protection from brightness and glare.
Polarized lenses - These lenses are treated with a chemical that filters out light, in order to eliminate glare while providing increased visibility and safety.
