The Importance of Wearing Sunglasses


Sunglasses come in all shapes, sizes and colors to fit your personality and wardrobe. We believe sunglasses are the most important accessory.  Think of them as sunscreen for your eyes! Extended exposure to the sun's UV rays has been linked to eye damage, including cataracts, macular degeneration, and growths of the white part of the eye called pterygium. At Insight Complete Eye Care, we strongly advise on the importance of wearing 100% UV protected sunglasses in all daytime light conditions. Even with the winter months approaching, your eyes still need protection from the overcast UV rays.

Polarized sunglasses go a step further by not only protecting your eyes, but allowing you to see your best. Glare washes out colors, obscures details, and fatigues your eyes. Polarized lenses eliminate 99.9% of glare making it an even better choice for protection against harmful UV rays. These lenses are perfect for any outdoor activities, including fishing, golf and tennis.

Come see our wonderful opticians at Insight to pick out the perfect pair of sunglasses for you. With a valid spectacle prescription, you even have the option of prescription sunglasses to get you seeing and feeling your best. Stop by and start shopping, no appointments necessary for assistance in our optical!
