Protect your eyes from UV rays

The Importance of Prescription Eyewear and Protecting Eyes from UV and Blinding Glare


We all know the importance of protecting our skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, but we cannot forget the importance of protecting our eyes too.  Living in Colorado, sunlight can really affect our eyes at this higher altitude, both by the sun and reflection off the snow.  Making sure you are fit for a great pair of sunglasses or prescription eyewear can help protect your eyes from sunburns, cataracts, macular degneration, eyelid skin cancer and more!  


Glare is another concern when it comes to protecting your eyes.  Glare from too much light can cause eye fatigue, reduced vision, and potentially be blinding.  It can become the cause of a horrible car accident if you’re blinded due to glare on the road.

You can protect yourself from harmful UVA and UVB rays as well as blinding glare by being fit for the perfect pair of sunglasses or prescription eyewear.  We offer sunglasses with a high eye protection factor as well as prescription eyewear (contacts and lenses) with our without tint, that help to absorb and block those harmful rays and glare.
