Protecting your eyes from the sun is very important in maintaining your eye health and keeping your vision sharp. Overexposure to UV light has been associated with eye diseases such as cataracts and age related macular disease. Choosing to wear protective eye wear, such as sunglasses, and opting for a UV coating on your prescription lenses will help.
Essilor have designed the Xperio lens to guarantee the protection of your eyes from UVA and UVB rays whilst spending time in the sun. Opting for prescription sun lenses will allow you freedom to relax in the sun knowing your eyes are protected, as well as avoiding blinding glare. The range has also been developed to offer you choice and style with the lens available in a range of colours.
At Marshall & Lilley we can provide you with Essilor’s smart brand of Transition lenses to help increase your protection against UV rays. Opting for this coating means your glasses will transition from clear lenses to tinted lenses in the sun, due to the intelligent photochromic molecules within the lens. The photochromic technology guarantees your eyes are protected from both UVA and UVB rays, whilst also helping to reduce glare. Making them the perfect choice for indoor and outdoor use.
