In addition to state-of-the-art eye exams using advanced technology, expert advice and valuable savings on top designer brand frames, lenses, contact lenses and eye care essentials, Urban Eyes is also proud to offer prescription and non-prescription sunglasses. While other Fordham Road sunglasses can range from poor to excellent UV protection, our sunwear lines provide the best protection from the sun. At Urban Eyes, we’re here to make sure your sunny days are as safe as they are fun.
Sunglasses are far more than a mere fashion accessory. Although they can transform your outfit or overall look, their most important function is to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. To reduce exposure to UV rays and their effects, we recommend you invest in a set of sunglasses which can provide at least 98% protection from UVA and UVB ray, even in the winter months. People don’t realize that just because the sun isn’t as intense or as hot in the winter that they still need protection. The winter sun sits lower in the sky which actually gives you more exposure if you’re out for a longer period of time, and this can be damaging to various layers of the eye. Polarized lenses, however, block light reflected from surfaces. We also offer photochromic lenses at our optical store. If you’ve ever felt frustrated at needing prescription glasses and prescription sunglasses to accommodate an outdoor lifestyle, you should consider photochromic lenses from our optical store. Photochromic lenses darken when exposed to UV rays. When the wearer goes outside, the lenses darken or tint. When the wearer goes back inside, the glasses become clear. There are a variety of photochromic options available, with choices in color and darkness of tint.
If you’re looking for a new pair of Fordham Road sunglasses, it’s vital that you choose a pair that not only merely look good on you, but will allow your eyes to see the world clearly, safely, and conveniently. Let the eye care practice of Urban Eyes help you enjoy being out in the sun safely and fashionably.
