Safety in the Sun

During the summer, and indeed all year round, it is important to protect your eyes from the invisible rays produced by the sun. It is a well-known fact that ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause serious health problems such as skin cancers. However, a lesser-known fact is that these harmful rays can also affect the eyes, causing cataract and corneal problems. It is vital that you choose a pair of sunglasses that will offer both protection and visual clarity in the sun. All sunglasses and sun lenses at McBride and McCreesh Opticians offer 100% UV protection and comply with all EU legal standards, safeguarding your eyes from the elements mentioned above.

At McBride and McCreesh Opticians we also understand that finding that perfect pair of sunglasses, isn’t just about deciding on what frame you like and what your plain, transition or polarized lens prescription is. We realise it goes beyond those factors. After all, your sunglasses are an integral part of how you look and how you feel. Therefore, our dispensing optician will also take your face shape, hair colour, complexion, personality and fashion style in to consideration before making suggestions for your eyewear. This will ensure that you and your sunglasses always look fabulous!
