Why Are Sunglasses Important?

Most people understand that UV rays damage skin cells. However, they are also harmful to the cornea, lens, retina, and other parts of the eye. It’s also important to know that shade can protect your skin, but it doesn’t protect your eyes. The only thing that can protect your eyes are sunglasses, so it’s important to have a pair available to help you see clearly when it’s bright outside.

Our No-Worries Guarantee Makes It Easy to Protect Your Eyes

Each pair of frames we sell comes with a complementary one-year warranty, so you can rest easy knowing that if anything goes wrong, we’ll have you covered. We also repair frames and glasses, even if the pair was purchased somewhere else. Bring your eyewear to one of our friendly neighborhood shops and we will fix it!
