At Andrew Watkins Optometrist we encourage all patients to wear sunglasses to protect the eyes from harmful UV light. Exposure to UV light can increase the risk of conditions such as cataracts, pterygium, macular degeneration and cancer. Sunglasses also have an important role in reducing glare and are particularly useful when driving and for outdoor activities such as fishing, skiing, cycling and golf.

We have a large variety of sunglasses ranging from the latest designer frames to the more practical. We carry major brands such as Oakley, Bolle, Maui Jim, Rudy Project, Mako, David Lawrence, Gucci and more. Most of our sunglasses can be fitted with prescription single vision or multifocal lenses; even wrap sunglasses' frames. So if you're a sport enthusiast and need sun protection, we have a wide range of options available.

There is a wide variety of lens options and tints available for sunglasses and we have access to the latest lens technology.

Polarising lenses give maximum glare protection; suitable for sports such as golf, skiing, fishing or those who love the beach or water.

Transition lenses will change colour and adjust to varying light conditions; this provides convenience to those who wear spectacles all the time.

Lenses can be custom tinted to suit individual needs. Thinner lenses can also be tinted for those higher prescriptions. All our lenses will filter UV light by 99.9%.

Come into the practice and discuss your sunglasses requirements with our knowledgeable staff.
