Nothing makes a statement about your sense of fashion and just how “cool” you are like a pair of sunglasses. If you want to catch people’s attention then a pair of designer sunglasses is the one of the best ways to do it. But Hicksville sunglasses from Eye and Vision Care Associates does more than prove you are a fashion powerhouse, they can also correct any vision detriments while protecting your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays.
Hicksville sunglasses, whether with prescription or non-prescription lenses feature the highest quality lenses with the strongest ultra-violet (UV) blocking protection. This is what separates sunglasses from our practice from non-prescription sunglasses from retail shops or mall kiosks. Ultraviolet radiation from the sun damages the skin of the eyeball as well as the cornea, lens and other parts of the eye. Doctors believe that UV radiation contributes to the development of some types of cataracts and macular degeneration. Evidence shows that certain prescription and over-the-counter medications can increase your sensitivity to UV radiation. When shopping for sunglasses look for lenses that block 99 to 100 percent of both UVA and UVB rays, as well as screen out 75 to 90 percent of visible light. It is also very important to have lenses that are perfectly matched in terms of color and are free from distortions and imperfections.
