A good UV blocking pair of sunglasses is essential to protect the health of the eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. High exposure to UV light increases risk of cataract and macular degeneration, and use of UV blocking sunglasses has been proven to reduce this risk.
We stock a wide range of sunglasses from innovative designers such as Rayban and Oakley as well as Maui Jim and William Morris. Feel free to come in and browse—it’s only when you try them on that you know they really are the ones for you…
Oakley have constantly brought new innovations to sunglasses over the past 25 years, including non-slip ear and nose pieces, polarised lenses and iridium lens coatings. Oakley lenses are made out of polycarbonate to give the best in eye protection. Transitions (photochromic) lenses are also available.
Oakley are synonymous with high performance, cutting edge technology and forward thinking style. Following the same ethos as their sunglasses, this range is designed with comfort, durability and fashion in mind. Using the same materials, including titanium, O Metal and unobtanium, from the lightweight metals to the statement-making Plastics.
Oakley materials used on earsocks and nose pieces to give that ‘oakley grip’ is unobtanium – Oakleys own created and patented material. The rubber grip effect increases as it becomes more moist with perspiration. Oakley lenses are made out of their own type of polycarbonate known as ‘Plutonite’.
The inspiration for the Oakley Hollow Point joint originates from the cam compression system in a motorbike back wheel. The result is a hinge without a screw, so it doesn’t need regular tightening and the sides on the glasses won’t “go floppy”.
The William Morris London collection offers a contemporary range of unisex eyewear that features delightful styling in a wide variety of popular shapes and includes a choice of bright colours. These frames shout ‘Extrovert’ and ‘Expressive’ and will suit patients who wish to create their own unique individual look.
