Sunglasses are so much more than just a stylish accessory; they play an essential role in safeguarding your eye health and protecting your vision. Proper sunglasses are critical for blocking out harmful UV light, which can cause permanent damage to your eyes.

Excessive UV light exposure increases your risk of developing serious ocular conditions, including cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

To help keep your eyes healthy and safeguard your sight, you should undergo regular comprehensive eye exams and only select sunglasses made with lenses that offer 100% UV protection.

To help you choose the right sunglasses for your needs, style, and budget, Hawkesbury Optometric employs two eyewear stylists (Jocelyne and Lucie), and stocks a wide range of sunglasses from popular, high-quality brands and fashionable designers.
