Celebrate In Style: International Sunglasses Day

Did you know that June 27th, 2023, is celebrated as International Sunglasses Day?

It’s a day dedicated to raising awareness about the significance of wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes from the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays.

The Importance of Sunglasses: Shielding Your Eyes from Harmful UV Rays

At The Optical Superstore, sunglasses are not just a fashion accessory but an essential part of maintaining your eye health. Let’s explore why sunglasses are crucial and how you can find the perfect pair for yourself and your little ones, including prescription sunglasses.


Sunglasses for Children: Protecting Their Precious Eyes

When it comes to eye protection, it’s not just adults who need to shield their eyes. Children’s eyes are even more sensitive to UV radiation, and prolonged exposure can lead to long-term damage. That’s why it’s vital to equip your little ones with quality sunglasses that provide optimal UV protection.

At The Optical Superstore, we offer a wide range of children’s sunglasses designed with both style and UV protection in mind. Our collection offers an array of shapes, colours, and sizes, ensuring your child can stay protected while expressing their unique personality.


Prescription Sunglasses: Combining Clarity and Sun Protection

If you wear prescription eyeglasses, you don’t have to compromise between clear vision and sun protection. Prescription sunglasses are a fantastic solution that allows you to enjoy the outdoors while ensuring optimal visual acuity.

The Optical Superstore offers a diverse selection of prescription sunglasses to cater to your unique needs. Whether you require single vision, bifocals, or progressive lenses, our experienced team of sunglass enthusiasts can help you find the perfect pair that combines your prescription requirements with the UV protection of sunglasses.
