We’re open this weekend, stop in and snag a pair before your Memorial Day celebrations!More
Making your Memorial Day plans? They probably include some outdoor fun like BBQs, hiking, camping, water sports or beach time. You should be wearing sun protection during all these activities. Extended exposure to the sun’s UV rays has been linked to eye damage, including cataracts, macular degeneration, pingueculae and pterygia and photokeratitis that can cause temporary vision loss. It can also cause premature aging around your eye area!
That’s where we come in. We have a huge selection of sunglasses for men, women, teens and kids too! Sunglasses for the whole family! Come by and snag a pair before this long holiday weekend, so the only thing you have to worry about is how much fun you’re having.
We have sunglasses from these great brands:
Face a Face
And many more!
It is crucial to wear your sunglasses all year long – but sometimes in the winter we may tend to forget. While digging out from recent snows or building a snowman with the kiddos – sunglasses should be as much of a staple as a hat and gloves.
The Vision Council recently took to Facebook to remind us that “UV radiation can still cause damage in the winter months. In fact, during fresh snow fall, individuals can experience “snow blindness” from UV radiation reflecting off the ground,”.
Our staff picked a few of their favorite sunglasses this season from their favorite brands to our bestsellers. Keep scrolling to see their picks!
1.) Prada jeweled black on black sunglasses.
These are high fashion frames fit for topping off any stylish gal’s look. The black on black look is chic but still versatile enough to use everyday.
2. Face a Face Pomme2
This twist on a classic round frame features a peep tone blue. Perfect for a subtle pop of color!
3. Tortoise Shell frames with navy, coral and white accents.
These sunglasses are a true classic featuring tortoise shell frames with lacquered accents on the sides in coral, navy and white. Easily transition these frames to spring and summer!
