The sun is shining, the hot weather is here, and those ultra-violet rays are out in full force ready to enhance that tan and warm us up after a frosty winter and spring. With the intensity of UV rays at an all-time high during the year, now is the best time to come in and see us for some new sunglasses.
Protecting your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays is always important. Did you know you can protect your eyes, see your best, and look fabulous with prescription sunglasses? While it is no secret to us here at Merivale Vision Care, we are always surprised at how many of our patients did not know their sunglasses could be made with prescription lenses! We can turn many of the beautiful shades in our optical boutique into prescription sun wear. When we put your prescription into sunglasses there are several ways we can treat the lenses, so they work best for you. All our prescription sun lenses come with scratch-resistant coating, and 100% UV protection. Tinted lenses are available to create fashionable and functional options like yellow, rose, blue, and violet.
Polarized lenses come in grey, green-grey, or brown, and offer superior glare reduction in the lenses when compared to a tint. Polarization is perfect for people who are looking for the crispest vision possible, for those that spend a significant amount of time driving, and for those that participate in outdoor sports such as golf and cycling. We can even add a mirror coat to the front of the sun lenses to make a bold fashion statement while maximizing light blockage.
Right now, we are offering huge savings on prescription sunglasses. During July and August, you can save $100 on any complete pair (frame and lenses) of prescription sunglasses. Even more exciting, you can save 20% on your second (and subsequent) pairs of prescription glasses or prescription sunglasses. We are also pledging $10 for each pair of glasses sold during July and August to fill backpacks for the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa. We cannot wait for you to come in so we can help you select your perfect prescription sunnies. There’s no better time than now for you to come in and see us!
