Sunglasses

Looking good is only one of the many great reasons to never leave your home without sunglasses.

We apply SPF50 on our skin to shield us from the sun’s harsh UV rays. But what about our eyes? In a 2012 survey, only 52% of Australians do not protect their eyes when they are in the sun and unfortunately, Australia has the highest skin cancer rate in the world (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, 2012).  

This simple yet stylish accessory can protect you from the following conditions caused by harsh ultraviolet rays:

  • Skin Cancer - Up to 10 percent of all skin cancers are found on the eyelid.
  • Cataracts - The World Health Organisation reports that, worldwide, approximately 900,000 people are blind because of cataracts—cloudiness in the lens of the eye—triggered by UV exposure.
  • Macular Degeneration - Over time UV light may play a role in damaging the macula lutea (an area of the eye with millions of light-sensing cells, which allow us to see fine details clearly), potentially leading to blurriness and vision loss.
  • Pterygium - This abnormal growth of tissue—also called surfer's eye—may progress slowly from either corner across the white part of the eye, possibly leading to inflammation or disturbance of vision.
  • Photokeratitis - Essentially a sunburn of the eye, it's temporary (healing within 48 hours) but can be painful, causing blurred vision, light sensitivity, and the sensation of having sand in your eye.

Our entire range of sunglasses can be made into prescription sunglasses where it can be further customised to type of tint colour (there are over 50 shades to choose from), darkness of tint, polarised coat and UV coat options
