Choose from our range of top designer sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun


dickens 41 resizedDespite being rare, the sun does make an appearance once in a while and when it does you spend as much time as possible outdoors enjoying yourself. You grab your sun hat and put on plenty of sun cream; but do you ever stop to consider the effect the sun can have on your eyes?

Your eyes can suffer both short and long term effects from exposure to the sun. Short term problems can include your eyes becoming burnt, just like your skin. This is called photokeratitis and can be extremely painful.

Long term eye conditions you are more at risk of if you continue to expose your eyes to the sun include cataracts, macular degeneration and skin cancer around the eyes. These conditions can cause irreversible blindness in extreme cases.

You can easily prevent both short and long term eye problems caused by the sun. The best way to do this is to ensure that you and your family wear sunglasses that are 100% UVA and UVB protected (these are the sun rays that your eyes are most at risk from).

At Dickens Eye Clinic we have an extremely impressive collection of sunglasses for you to browse. You can have great fun choosing from our range of iconic designs from American brands such as Ray-Ban, Maui Jim and Oakley. Maybe you’d prefer something effortlessly stylish from a continental brand; something by Chanel, Cartier or Chrome Hearts perhaps?

Please remember that while the days are warmer your little one is probably spending more time outdoors. Don’t forget to protect your child’s eyes when they’re exposed to the sun. We have a great range of children’s sunglasses at our practice that we guarantee your youngster will love.
