It’s not just about finding sunglasses that look good and feel comfortable, says Jeff Brewer O.D. of Legacy Eyecare. Proper lens treatments are needed to protect long-term eye health. Also, the right lens color helps with outdoor tasks and can even boost athletic performances. A brown lens highlights objects on green surfaces. A grey lens cuts glare off of water. Brewer cautions that, “not all sunglass lenses can be trusted to adequately protect against UV and blue light damage from sun exposure.”
Legacy Eyecare serves clients of all ages, he adds. Because a child’s eyes are most vulnerable to UV and blue light damage, parents should encourage children to wear sunglasses purchased from a trusted eye care source. Protecting eye health early in life can help avoid later development of cataracts or macular degeneration, the most common cause of vision loss in people over 55. Legacy Eyecare’s staff has the expertise to ensure clients get matched with reliable sun wear—from the largest single location selection in the city—that best meets their needs!
