Quality sunglasses should be a very important part of your sun care regime. As well as reducing the chance of skin cancers on or around the eyes, good sunglasses can also slow down the progression of pterygiums, cataracts and macular degeneration.
Not only do we have non prescription sunglasses ready to purchase in store, over 90% of the sunglass frames we stock are also available to have prescription lenses fitted.
