Sunglasses

Sunglasses can give you instant James Dean cool, Audrey Hepburn glamour, or the rock star hipness of Bono. But they are much more than a fashion accessory.

Sunglasses are an essential tool in safeguarding the health of your eyes and the surrounding tissue.

UV radiation increases your odds of getting cataracts, which cloud the eye's lens and lead to diminished eyesight. It has also been linked to macular degeneration, a treatable, but incurable disease of the macula - the part of the retina responsible for our sharpest vision.

Other UV-related eye problems are pterygia and pinguecula.

We have discovered that you can get nasty sunburn on an overcast, hazy day but you are exposing your eyes to the same damaging UV rays on these days, too.

This highlights the need to wear sunglasses whenever you're outdoors, all year round, similar to sunscreen.

Sunglasses are especially important for children. UV eye damage is cumulative over a lifetime, so it's important to make wearing sunglasses a habit early in life. What's more, children's eyes are especially vulnerable because they're still developing.

Since wearing sunglasses is such an important part of your eye health, you should consult an experienced eye care practitioner to ensure that you are wearing the right sunglasses for you.

Polarized lenses reduce glare by filtering out the reflected sunlight that bounces off surfaces such as water or bitumen. They're a good option for people who spend time on the water such as fishermen or sailors and for people who drive a lot, especially on flat open roads.

Eye care experts agree that price isn't a gauge of UV protection. But very inexpensive sunglasses are likely to contain lenses that are stamped out of a mould rather than ground and polished, and that can affect optical quality.

Consistency is a concern with lower-priced glasses. You might find one pair that offers great clarity and another that's the very same brand and model but highly distorted.

At Eyes by Design we have a large range of sunglasses to suit all budgets. Some brands we stock are:-



• Maui Jim
• Zeal
• Bill Bass
• Cancer Council (Adults & Kids)

Sunglass frames should fit snugly on your nose and ears without pinching or rubbing. At Eyes by design we will professionally adjust your sunglasses for optimum fit at no cost to you when purchasing your sunglasses and at future dates if they fall out of alignment.

At the end of the day, whether you opt for a premium sunglass or a more budget pair, you will easily find sunglasses that are flattering and functional at Eyes by Design. After all, protecting the health of your eyes is one sunglass trend that will never go out of style.

At Eyes by Design all of our sunglasses comply with Australian Standard AS1067.1.1990.

Prescription Sunglasses

Many people will benefit from prescription sunglasses because blur will effectively disperse light and can increase glare symptoms. An eye examination with our optometrist, Nicholas Altuneg, can be made to determine the possible benefits of prescription sunglasses for you.

Prescription sunglass lenses can be fitted to any of our optical frames and to most of our sunglass frames.

Most of our prescription lenses are specially ground and manufactured in Australia, by Australians using high clarity and low distortion lens materials. This ensures the best vision for you with a quick turnaround time.

You may be able to claim a tax deduction for your sunglasses if you work outside. To check whether this applies to you visit the Australian Tax Office website.
