34231 Optometry

Optometry in 34231

Today it is recommended that everyone has their eyes protected from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays year round. This means that it is a good idea to wear sunglasses whenever you are outside in order to keep out 100% of the sun’s rays. It is important for adults wear sunglasses even while driving in their car, as the windshield will not keep out the sun’s harmful rays. It is also important for children to wear sunglasses when they are outside because children receive about 80% of their total lifetime exposure to the sun’s harmful rays by the time they reach age 18. This is because a child’s eyes are more transparent and will more easily absorb the harmful rays of the sun. If you are looking for a great 34231 optometry practice where you can get designer sunglasses or other protective sun wear, simply visit us today at Optical Outlets.

Our optician will be able to help you find sunglasses with appropriate lenses which will fully protect your eyes from the sun. In order for your eyes to be fully protected from the sun’s rays, the lenses will need to block out 100% of the UVA and UVB rays. Harmful effects from the sun will not immediately be recognized; in fact, most sun damage to the eyes does not become evident until later in life when cataracts or macular degeneration develops. At our 34231 optometry practice, our frame experts will be able to help you find sunglass frames which work well with the protective sun wear; oftentimes, the most effective sunglasses have a wraparound style so that the sun’s rays cannot even affect your eyes when they attempt to enter through the side of the glasses.

Our optician will be able to talk to you about additional protective sun wear which you may want to use when you are playing a particular sport. Depending on the type of sport, and where it is played, our optician may recommend a different type of sportswear. For example, if you are a fisherman, you will want to have lenses which will help to reduce the glare of the water. If you are a golfer, a different type of lens may be useful in helping to protect from the strong rays of the sun. Whatever type of protective sun wear you are looking for, you will be able to purchase it at our 34321 optometry practice and optical store. Even though this summer is reaching an end, we urge you to continue to wear sunglasses year round, which will keep your eyes safe from the sun’s strong and potentially harmful rays.
