The chill in the air means only one thing, it’s time to layer up for winter. One thing you might not be musing over for your new season wardrobe is eyewear, but as Davina Dosanjh from Richard Petrie Optometrists in Littleover explains, it’s just as important to protect your eyes during the winter months as it is in the summer. And there are some fantastic trends too.
With crisp, bright days comes blinding glare from the sunshine. Last year the AA reported that sun dazzle was a factor in 2,905 car accidents. Polarised lenses can help significantly with glare and reduces the dazzle from direct sunlight.
Believe it or not, the amount of UV exposure to your eyes is amplified in the snow due to reflection. So whether you’re hitting the ski slopes this winter or taking a stroll in the peaks it’s important to wear sunglasses. We stock a huge range of designer sunglasses including Maui Jim and children’s styles.
At this time of year you want to be party ready too, so why not add some sparkle to your second pair of frames? Universal and Kikai frames from £75 add a bit of glitz with diamanté detail and animal print. And we have frames in just about any colour to match your outfit too.
