As the population ages health authorities are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of ultraviolet (UV) protection. Whenever you are outdoors a pair of sunglasses protects your eyes from UV light. Decreasing your exposure helps to protect your eyes from age related macular degeneration and cataracts.
Things to look for include:
- Adequate wrap-around protection.
- UV blocking lenses.
- Polarising lenses if you spend time on the water, sailing or fishing.
- A comfortable tint (dark enough to block the glare, yet light enough to see in low light conditions).
- Scratch resistant lenses.
Do you have prescription glasses? No problem, many sunglasses are now available in prescription lenses. These give you ultimate protection plus focus your eyes to the maximum of their ability. Make an appointment with us today to discuss your options.
Today our lives are strongly influenced by the automobile, which has changed the way we experience the outdoors. Drivewear lenses are capable of sensing and reacting to light conditions outside the car as well as inside. These include bright sunlight, blinding glare and overcast conditions. Drivewear lenses provide glare protection through polarisation. Photochromics further enhance and protect vision by responding to both visible and UV light. By combining these two technologies Drivewear have developed the lens of tomorrow. Come and see us today to find out if your prescription is suitable for this fantastic technology.

Contact lenses provide a fantastic alternative to spectacles.
Spectacles work well but sometimes feel uncomfortable or are simply not practical for activities such as sport, dance or swimming. For eye conditions such as Keratoconus, contact lenses can help you achieve better quality vision.
Many of our clients have taken-up our free trial of Daily Disposable lenses. Disposability appeals to people frustrated by the fuss of cleaning and maintaining lenses. Daily lenses are also popular due to their superior comfort - the wearer uses a fresh pair of lenses every day.
Spectacle wearers and people returning to contact lenses can now enjoy comfort and great vision without the hassle of cleaning. Full time, monthly or two weekly disposable lens wearers can combine their current lenses with daily disposables for travel and weekends.
If you are interested in trying this product, please phone for an appointment. We will happily demonstrate the clear, comfortable vision you can expect with daily contact lenses.
