Sunglasses can make anyone look trendy. They can accent your personality in subtle or obvious ways. But sunglasses are not just a Screenshot 2014-12-26 08.44.11fashion statement.

Sunglasses for Eye Protection

Sunglasses today provide a number of safety elements that help to maintain the health of your eyes. The sun emits harmful UV rays, and prolonged exposure to these rays can lead to vision problems.

We offer sunglasses that prevent UV light from damaging the eye. Polarized lenses limit the glare from light reflecting off surfaces, such as water, snow, or car windows.

Protective, polarized lenses do not come standard in all sunglasses. Toronto’s The Eyeglass Factory has experienced opticians who can help you find sunglasses with sufficient protection power for your eyes.

We also offer sunglasses for sports and specialty lenses. Sports glasses and specialty lenses feature a variety of coatings, filters, and tints to make any task easier to accomplish.

Prescription Sunglasses

Some people don’t have the option to simply swap their everyday glasses for a pair of sunglasses when they go to the beach. Doing so would sacrifice their ability to see for the opportunity to protect their eyes.

For this group of people we offer prescription sunglasses. Our Thornhill store has a wide variety of Transitions lenses and prescription sunglasses.

Transitions lenses adjust to the amount of light within a given space. When in a low-lighted area like an office building or home, these lenses look and act like normal lenses. But step outside into the bright sunlight and they darken to protect the eyes.

Clip-on Sunglasses

Clip-on sunglasses are an effective alternative to buying a separate pair of sunglasses. We offer custom made clip-ons for frames purchased at The Eyeglass Factory.

If you are looking to buy a new pair of sunglasses, prescription sunglasses, or clip-ons, we carry a wide selection of designer and custom-made products to meet your unique style. Visit our Thornhill location or call us at (905) 881-1276.

We are conscious about protecting our skin with sun block but what about our eyes?
