Ultra-violet light – both UV-A and the more damaging UV-B rays - can be harmful to the eyes, and can contribute to the development of pterygium, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
Quality sunglasses can provide a range of protection from UV light, and our opticians can help you choose a pair of sunglasses that meets your needs.
We offer prescription sunglasses and fashion sunglasses, including Maui Jim and Ray-Ban as well as polarized lenses, which are especially beneficial for driving.
We also provide 7eye sunglasses which have moisture chambers and can help patients with dry eyes feel more comfortable while driving or outdoors.
Please call us at 815-316-6516 with any questions, or simply stop in to New Vision Laser Center’s Optical Shop to see what we have to offer.
