Solar glare?

Solar glare can make your commute difficult at best and dangerous for those not wearing proper sunwear.

Polarized lenses will significantly reduce the amount of glare you experience.  Sunwear isn't just for summer - it should be worn year 'round to  reduce glare reflecting from the snow or water. 

In addition to the danger aspect, over time the sun's rays can cause serious damage to the eyes and surrounding skin, leading to vision loss and conditions from cataracts and macular degeneration to eye and eyelid cancers.

The best defense is lenses that absorb and block the harmful rays.

Our Optical staff will recommend the appropriate sunwear for your lifestyle and needs.  Polarized lenses come in prescription and non-prescription options.
