Glasses for the Summer

Time for new glasses? Modern styles can make you look and feel younger.

  • Upgrade your eyewear. Spring fashion trends inspire great new eyeglass frame designs. Visit your eye doctor’s office to see what eyewear is in this season.
    After you’ve upgraded your frames consider donating your old glasses to someone in need. You can change the life of someone who can’t afford an eye exam or eyewear.
  • Sports eyewear. Almost 90% of sports-related eye injuries are preventable with protective eyewear. Sports glasses offer eye protection, colour enhancement, light control and more. Consult an optician to find the best sports eyewear to keep your eyes safe and enhance your game.
  • Allergy relief. Seasonal allergies can have you in a fog, with itchy eyes and a runny nose. Pay extra attention to what triggers your allergies so you’ll know what to avoid. Click here for more allergy tips and visit your eye doctor if your eyes become red, watery or swollen.
  • Sun protection. It’s important to wear sunglasses all year long, but summertime is great for purchasing new shades for your whole family. Even little eyes need protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays.  
  • Remember that UV rays can damage eyes even on cloudy days. Wearing sunglasses whenever you are outside can reduce your risk for cataracts and macular degeneration.
  • Make sure your children wear sunglasses that block 100% of UV rays when outdoors.
  • Don’t let glare from the sun ruin outdoor activities like boating, golfing and even jogging.
  • Polarized lenses for sunglasses help control glare and provide a clearer view with a special filter that blocks intense reflected light.
  • Swim goggles. Whether it’s a dip in the pool, a visit to the beach, or jumping into a lake, you should never wear contacts while swimming unless you’re also wearing goggles. Goggles protect your eyes from waterborne bacteria that can cause sight-threatening diseases.
    Goggles also sharpen your vision while you swim, snorkel or explore underwater. If you normally wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, look into prescription goggles that can correct your vision and protect your eyes.
