Sunglasses are an easy solution that makes your life more comfortable and stylish, while providing critical protection from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays.

Applying the right sunscreen protects your skin from premature aging and the harmful effects of UV rays. The same goes for your lenses. The addition of a protective coating shields the eyes against the UV rays while preventing premature aging and any other irreversible damage linked to sun exposure.

Sunglasses are not just for summer months. They should be worn year round.
