Your eyes need protection from UV rays on bright sunny days – and when the clouds roll into town. On top of that, the need for protection doubles while you’re in the snow and out on the water.
So, you should always have a great pair of sunglasses on hand as you go about your day. Unfortunately, not all sunglasses are made equal. Your sunglasses must offer protection from both UVA and UVB radiation to fully shield your eyes from damage – and we’re here to help.
With a trip to Vision Plaza, you can find the highest quality sunglasses in Burleson – and we carry all the top lens and frame styles. You can even get sunglasses made using your eyeglass prescription for easy vision correction on the go!
Why Wear Sunglasses?
Despite its beauty, sunlight puts out intense ultraviolet radiation that damages tissues at the cellular level. And it’s not just your skin that’s at risk. Your eyes can also suffer damage from the sun’s radiation, which you might know better as UV rays.
Exposure to the UV rays has the potential to change the structure of your eye tissues, resulting in difficulty seeing clearly. Beyond that, your risk of developing serious eye conditions, like macular degeneration and cataracts, increases as well.
Wearing sunglasses not only protects your eyes from damage but also makes it easier to see in bright conditions. You don’t have to worry about getting bad headaches either as the sunglasses block the UV light from straining your eyes.
Types of Sunglasses We Carry
As your premier Burleson optometrist, we carry all the leading types of sunglasses, including:
- Trendy shades
The clip-ons snap right onto your prescription glasses to provide protection in an instant. They are easy to use, affordable, and ultra-stylish always.
If you’d like standalone sunglasses, you can select your preferred frames and lens styles to create your perfect look. We have frames from all the major eyeglass brands plus can order whatever lens styles you’d like, including polarized lenses.
Prefer to have your lenses darken at the first sign of bright UV rays? Ask about transition lenses that you wear like normal eyeglasses day after day. As soon as you step into a bright area, the shades darken, protecting your eyes without a second thought from you.
