Our Bifocal Sunglasses have two points of focus. These oval bifocal sunglasses have a dark graduated lens and suit most. A non magnified top section and a small magnified section at the bottom in a choice of reading strengths.
If your face width and length are proportionate and you’ve got a broad forehead and a strong jaw, you’re probably in the category for choosing oval or round frames as they soften the jawline. Avoid angular frames as these will emphasise your angular facial features.
What are my options to prevent UV damage to my eyes?
You must wear sunglasses to prevent damage to your eyes. While some contact lenses provide UV protection, they don’t cover your whole eye, so you still need sunglasses.
Look for sunglasses that protect you from 99 to 100 percent of UV light.
When do UV rays affect my eyes?
Most people think that they’re at risk only when they’re outside on a sunny day, but UV light can go right through clouds, so it doesn’t matter if the sky is overcast. The sun’s rays are strongest between 10 am and 2 pm.
Glare and reflections can give you trouble, so have your sunglasses ready if you’ll be around snow, water or sand, or if you’ll be driving (windshields are a big glare source).
The following put you at additional risk: sunlamps, tanning beds and parlors, photo sensitizing drugs and living at high altitudes or near the equator.
