The days are getting longer, are your eyes protected?

Spring has come and summer is quickly approaching. Residents of Texas know how brutal the Houston sun can be. It is important to protect not only your skin, but also your eyes from the damaging effects of UV light emitted from the sun.

80% of UV damage to the eyes occur by the time we turn 18 years old. Not all sunglasses are created equal! To maintain a lifetime of good vision, make sure you wear 100% UV protective sunglasses.

Larger sunglasses with more face-wrap will allow also better protection to the skin around your eyes! Wearing sunglasses will decreasing your squinting, which in turn will delay the onset of wrinkles and crow's feet! Click here to read more about the damaging effects of the sun.

For the month of April 2016 we are giving away vouchers for 25% off a non-prescription sunglasses with the purchase of a 6 month supply of contact lenses or more. Stop by our optical for a personalized frame styling!
