The eyes are ten times more sensitive to ultraviolet light than your skin and at Hammond Opticians we believe that effective eye care goes far beyond visual correction lenses. Ultraviolet (UVA and UVB) radiation from the sun can cause significant damage to your eyes, so it is important to have full protection in your sunglasses to reduce the UV exposure to your eyes and face.
Polarised lenses can also protect your eyes from harsh reflections, which can also cause damage to the eyes. Protecting our eyes is a concern for all of us, but more particularly for young children, as their eyes are more susceptible to damage.
Our sunglass fitting service is designed to make sure that all our clients make the most of their eyewear. When you’ve chosen your new sunglasses (whether they are prescription glasses or not), you will have them fitted correctly, and be offered free servicing and adjustments for the lifetime of your purchase.
