Why Wear Sunglasses?

Why Wear Sunglasses?

Sunglasses are essential in preventing damage to the eyes by the sun's ultra-violet radiation.

Damage could include inflammation of the cornea, cancer, cataracts, and ptergium (a fleshy growth on the front surface of the eye).

Children and young adults especially are at risk and parents should make sure that their children wear sunglasses, particularly when levels of UV radiation are high - for example, at the beach or on the snow.

At Canon Street Optometrists, we have many brands and styles available. Our awesome team are trained to fit sunglasses for your maximum comfort and protection!
