We believe in giving you the best care and advice about how to protect and maintain healthy vision at all time. As summer is approaching protecting your eyes when outdoors is a must.
Our recommended sunwear product is Xperio polarised lenses. Xperio lenses offer you the highest level of UV protection with E-SPF 50+. E-SPF stands for Eye – Sun Protection Factor and E-SPF 50+ means that an eye protected by the lens will receive 50 times less UV exposure than an unprotected eye. Your eyes require the same level of protection as the one you give your skin with sunscreen.
With Xperio, you’ll benefit from relaxed vision, enhanced colour perception, improved contrast and 100% glare elimination.
Dangerous UV rays are present in all weathers, and not just on sunny days. UV damage to the eye is worryingly underestimated and it is our mission to educate our patients on the dangers. If you want to know more about the impact of UV rays on eye health then please ask us when you next visit.
