SUN AND SPORTSWEAR « optometryonhydepark.com

SUNWEAR
sunwearTo reduce exposure to UV rays and their effects, we recommend you invest in a great pair of sunglasses which can provide at least 98% protection from UVA and UVB rays. While cheaper sunglasses can range from poor to excellent UV protection,  quality sunwear lines provide the best protection from the sun and provide tints that enhance your visual performance.  For most patients, polarized sunglasses are recommended. Polarized lenses block light reflected from surfaces such as a flat road or smooth water and glare is really what bothers us when outside.  

Children under the age of 20 are the most susceptible to the damaging effects of UV light.  80% of the eye damage from the sun occurs before the age of 18.  Make sure you have quality sunwear on your children – and it is never too early to start – ask about our products for infants and toddlers. 

We welcome you to come in anytime to browse our frame and sunglasses selection and talk with our friendly and knowledgeable eye care professionals.

We carry sunglasses from the following brands:

SPORTS WEAR
sportswearIf you play sports, you should keep two things in mind related to your vision: protection and precision.

Specialty products such as swim goggles, diving masks, ski masks and sports goggles are available through Optometry on Hyde Park.  

Sports lenses protect the wearer’s eyes. Sports such as tennis, baseball, softball, and racquetball may see ball speeds of 90 mph or more!  There are lenses that are more resistant to impact than regular plastic and offer protection for 90% of eye injuries and are available with anti-fog, glare reduction and scratch resistant properties.  Protective eyewear fits well, features a padded bridge, has prescription or non-prescription lenses, and are special, deep-grooved frames to prevent the lens from falling out on impact.
