Stylish sunglasses are a summer essential!

Shafik Haji of Eye Opticians in Barnt Green explains why good sunglasses are essential.

Summer is coming, and now is the time to turn your attentions to getting the right pair of sunglasses for you and your family. When the sun shines you want to look good (and you had better believe it – this year’s styles are fantastic!) but sunwear really is about so much more, and at Eye Opticians we can show you how.

Sunlight can create glare on any surface, including water, sand, snow, windows, vehicles and buildings. Even on a partly cloudy day your eyes need protection from the harmful effects of ultra violet (UV) rays. UV rays contribute to many eye health and vision problems, including cataracts and retinal damage.

Quality sunglasses that screen out 100 per cent of the sun’s UV rays will offer the best protection for your eyes while enhancing your visual performance.

There are a number of options available when selecting either non-prescription or prescription sunwear, from oversized glamorous styles to classic aviators, and sporty wraparounds to stylish tortoiseshell geek chic. Sunglasses are an essential accessory for the fashion conscious consumer who wants to look great and be protected at the same time.

Choosing the right lens colour is just as essential as the fit and look of the sunglasses. Neutral grey lenses provide the least amount of colour distortion. Contrast enhancing brown lenses come in various shades including amber and copper.

Often these lenses are selected for sport activities requiring visual detail and contrast, such as golf. For protection from glare reflecting off road surfaces, water, snow, or any shiny surface, polarized lenses are the answer.

Remember, whatever your style – enjoy wearing your sunglasses this summer!
