We stock the finest sunglasses from some of the most popular brands.
Although most of us wear sun cream to protect from the harmful rays of the sun, many do not give the same protection to our eyes. Without protection UV, infrared and blue light can be harmful to our eyes and cause permanent damage. Lifelong exposure to UV light is, for example, a risk factor for the development of Age Related Macular Degeneration, a potentially blinding eye condition that occurs in later life. It is therefore vital to wear the correct sunglasses. We have a wide variety of leading designer brands to ensure your eyes are kept safe in the sun whilst wearing the most up to date designs.
Brands of designer sunglasses available at Linklaters Optometrists, Leslie Warren Opticians and Linklater & Warren Opticians include:
- Anne et Valentin
- Face Á Face
- Tom Ford
Whether it is sunny or raining children love to be outside and it is important they have the right protection for their eyes. Children’s eyes are clearer and allow more light to enter than adult eyes. They are therefore far more susceptible to damage by UV radiation which can cause problems later in life. We offer a range of prescription and non-prescription sunglasses for children of all ages. We carefully select all our children’s sunglasses to ensure they are of a high quality and robust enough for wear and tear! Our dispensing team are always on hand to advise on the different styles and best fits.
Polarised lenses have a permanent tint. They eliminate blinding reflective glare to help reduce eyestrain and squinting. They provide 100% UV protection and enhance contrast to give better clarity and colour perception. They are particularly useful for driving, sports and activities near the water.
