As part of our “My Eyes”eye health focus, protecting eyes from the sun and UV damage is a major part of our daily job as eyecare professionals at Envision Optical.

We ask you a number of lifestyle questions when you come in for your appointment and some of these are aimed at ensuring your eyes are being protected whenever you are enjoying the outdoor lifestyle on the Gold Coast.

Many eye conditions including cataracts, pterygiums and Macular degeneration can be related to UV exposure, so loving your eyes by wearing sunnies will help your eyes stay as healthy as possible well into old age. Your sunnies need to block invisible UV to protect your eyes, but they also need to have a good quality tint, and preferably be polarised to reduce the glare and give you comfortable vision in the sun.  We have an excellent range of sunglasses at each of our stores including the premium polarised brand Maui Jim, and stylish fashion brands like Fendi, Guess, CK, Gant and Emilio Pucci.

This month is the perfect time to update your sunnies for summer because we are offering 20% OFF ON ALL NEW SEASON SUNNIES IN STORE, full warranties apply.

Even greater discounts are available on selected stock from last season. If you have a prescription the 20% also applies to the cost of your tinted lenses, so it really is a great time to update!

We look forward to helping you protect your eyes and update your look.
