Maui Jim most popular sunglasses for Monnow Eyecare customers
Spring has arrived and it’s the time of year most of us think about our sunglasses. People who spend long periods of time out of doors need to be especially careful to make sure their eyes are fully protected from harmful UV rays. Farmers, gardeners, golfers and children playing out will all be at a higher risk of causing damage to their eyes as well as people who take some prescription drugs including contraceptive pills, antibiotics, diuretics and tranquilisers. If you’ve had a recent eye operation, you also need to take extra care by wearing sunglasses.
“With so many choices of style, colour and lens type on offer, patients at Monnow Eyecare really value our help and advice in selecting a pair of sunglasses that is just right for them” says dispensing optician Emily Biddlecombe.” Whether they need prescription or non-prescription spectacles, our most popular brand is Maui Jim, which they return to every time they purchase a new pair because they love the experience of wearing them”.
Patented lens technology in Maui Jim lenses means natural light is enhanced rather than dimmed so you can see with exceptional clarity and colour. The lenses have several special coatings which means they are waterproof, repel grease and are scratch resistant. The anti-reflective layer and ‘bi-gradient’ mirror squints for you, which allows your eyes to fully relax. These glasses come recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as effective for the eyes and surrounding skin, blocking 99.99% of glare and 100% of harmful UV rays. As well as all this advanced technology, the lenses are available in a choice of colours which gives the wearer more options. Most people prefer either grey or brown and there is even a specific tint for golfers!
“Everyone is different” says Emily, “there is a personal choice of colour and frame style but the glasses can be tailored to suit the persons hobbies and lifestyle as well. I usually encourage people to try them on outside the practice so they can assess which combinations are most comfortable for them in natural light”.
Monnow Eyecare are also stockists of Ray-Ban, Oakley, Cocoa Mint, Vinyl Factory, Ferrucci & Jensen sunglasses, giving you a huge choice of frame colours and styles, so you’ll be sure to find a pair of sunglasses that are perfect for you. We’ll advise you about getting prescription lenses fitted if you need these.
