Beat the sun with our prescription sunglasses range

Jul 20, 2018

Not only can you look stylishly good, but sunglasses serve as eye disease protection.

Did you know:

  • UV radiation increases your odds of getting cataracts, or clouding over the lens of one’s eye. This makes the use of sunglasses an important factor for prevention of cataracts.
  • Glaucoma, a chronic eye condition in which pressure can cause damage to the optic nerve, can make eyes highly sensitive to light. This makes sunglasses a go-to for people who suffer from Glaucoma.
  • Like glaucoma, people with Macular Degeneration (AMD) are also very sensitive to light. While providing sun protection, sunglasses can also help prevent the acceleration of this disease.

Enjoy the sun throughout the year by following these 3 easy steps:

Step 1:  Choose your designer sunglasses from the range.

Step 2:  Select your tinted prescription lenses. Single vision from $299, progressive lenses from $529.

Step 3:  Optional lens upgrade to polarised plus for $120.

Now available: Kool Kids prescription sunglasses

Prevention now will save your child from vision loss later in life. It’s never too early to teach them good habits!

Choose from brands like Owlet and Lacoste, and complete the look with tinted prescription lenses from $129 to $239. Upgrade to polarised lenses available.

Look good and see well! If you would like to try on a pair of our prescription sunglasses, please don’t hesitate to email Jenny at jenny@gp-optom.co.nz or visit us in the shop.
