Bay Optical carries a fine assortment of designer and sport sunglasses. Polycarbonate sunglass lenses continue to be strong sellers due to their shatterproof properties. They are also more fog-resistant than glass or plastic lenses.
To provide optimal eye protection, your sunglasses should:
Block out 99-100% of both UV-A and UV-B radiation
Screen out 75-90% of visible light
Be perfectly matched in color and be free of distortion
Be able to protect the eyes from impact injury
The principal danger posed by the sun is in the form of ultraviolet radiation (in short UV radiation). UV is a component of solar energy, but it can also be given off by artificial sources like welding machines, tanning beds and lasers.
Several frames in our stock can be made into prescription sunglasses with all protective lens and coating options including UV filters. Our professional staff of dispensing opticians will assist you in choosing the best options for your sunglass frames.
