Glasses draw attention to your face, they can make a big difference to the way you look. That is why it is important to wear a pair that really suits you, at Opticks you will receive an unhurried experience whilst choosing the right pair to make sure you look great in your new spectacles.
It is very important to protect your vision in sunlight. Your eyes can suffer against glare but more importantly ultraviolet rays. Over exposure to UV light may lead to cataracts and prematurely age your retina, this causes reduced vision in later life. This can be particularly vulnerable to children as their eyes are not fully developed.
That’s why we only recommend sunglasses with optical quality lenses and a UV filter. They’ll give you maximum protection and more comfortable vision no matter how the bright the sunlight.
Polarised lenses are usually best because they eliminate reflected glare from surfaces such as water, roads, sand and snow. They’re ideal for sailing, skiing and driving.
Sunglasses are also very much a fashion item, which is why we stock a wide choice of stunning styles, including designer ranges and speciality sports brands such as Oakley and Wiley X. No matter what your requirements, Opticks Opticians have great looking sunglasses that are just right for you.
These are lenses that darken outside in sunlight and fade back to clear when indoors. Photochromic lenses enable you to enjoy more comfortable vision, ideal if you are sensitive to bright light. They also offer the convenience of not having to switch between your glasses and sunglasses. Photochromic lenses are available in single vision, varifocal and bifocal options and will fit most frames.
The latest and most advanced photochromic technology, these lenses are designed to quickly adapt from clear when indoors to fully dark in brightest sun, offering a distinct advantage over clear lenses.
