This summer, it has never been easier to remain fashion-forward while protecting your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays. Specsavers house an impressive selection of prescription and non-prescription sunglasses, including designer collections, for both adults and children.
Chairperson of Specsavers Ireland, Kerril Hickey comments: ‘We would encourage all customers to prioritise their optical health ahead of the summer months to ensure their eyes are fully protected. Not all sunglasses will necessarily have UV protection, even if they have got dark lenses. In fact, this could damage sight more than not wearing sunglasses at all. The dark lenses in sunglasses cause our pupils to widen and let more light in. So without the UV filter, this could cause real damage.’
With prices starting from €149, customers can get their hands on a range of designer sunglasses, with UV protection, including the recently launched MARC JACOBS, HUGO, Kenzo and Osiris Eyewear Collection fronted by Gary Barlow. Not forgetting the little ones, Specsavers also offer sunglasses from collections such as Disney and Marvel.
What’s more, Specsavers Reactions lenses which cleverly adapt to light conditions, allowing you to see clearly no matter how sunny it gets, offering 100% UV protection. Usually €69, Specsavers offer free Reactions lenses when you buy a pair of glasses from the €89 range or over.
