Sunglasses serve an important function in protecting your eye health. You already know the harm that the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation rays can potentially do to your skin – but these rays can also cause damage to your eyes.
When it comes to enjoying our free time, there are many activities in which we like to enjoy. One of the most important senses for these hobbies is our eyesight. Thus it is essential to ensure that our eyes are maximally protected at all times.
Worshipped since the dawn of civilisation, the sun symbolises life itself. Its energy is synonymous with rejuvenation, good health, beauty, and sport. The sun, however, is not without its dangers with its intense rays. It can lead to unpleasant red eyes and potentially more serious damage, even blindness. Your optometrist can advise which type of sunglasses to protect your eyes generally, or for specific sports or occupational needs. Children in particular are extremely sensitive and without protection are all the more susceptible to long term damage. The eyes of a child under the age of 10 transmit over 75 per cent of UV radiation compared to 10 per cent in adults over the age of 25. Photochromatic lenses such as Transitions are very useful. They darken when outdoors according to the light intensity, then change back to clear when indoors. Clear high impact lenses such as Airwear also provide 100 per cent UV protection, especially for active children.

Come into Brown Thomas’s fragrance wall and Joan or Ali, fragrance experts on counter, will get you sorted with your own signature scent.
