You may think that sunglasses are merely a cool fashion accessory, but sunglasses can do so much more than that. While typical sunglasses can still protect your eyes from brightness and glare, UV protected sunglasses can keep your eyes safe and healthy all year round. Here at our Greenpoint eyeglass store, General Vision Express/Lens Lab, we have a wide selection of frames for you to choose from in order to create a custom fit pair of sunglasses.
Sunglasses are important for those with and without a visual prescription. Those who prefer frames over contact lenses should seriously consider investing in a prescription pair of sunglasses from our Greenpoint eyeglass store to ensure that their eyes are protected all year round. Even though the rays from the sun are more easily felt in the summer when the heat is bearing down on us, the sun’s UV rays are just as powerful in the winter as well. This can cause severe damage to your eyes and cause further complications in any eye conditions that may already be present. Not only that, but glare is just as bad in the winter as it is in summer. Bright snow banks reflect a lot of light off of their surfaces and can cause immense glare, resulting in temporary blindness. At General Vision Express/Lens Lab we can fit you with a personalized pair of sunglasses that block 100% of all UVB an UV rays. These sunglasses will not only keep your eyes safe from damaging rays, but will also keep you safe from intense amounts of glare and other light issues.
