Your eyesight is precious and deserves the best possible care. That’s why it’s important to protect your eyes against glare and ultraviolet (UV) light by wearing quality sunglasses. But not all sunglasses are the same. For maximum protection you should choose a pair with optical quality lenses. Not only will they shade your eyes against harsh sunlight, they'll protect you from the hidden risk of ultraviolet rays.
The UV Risk
Over-exposure to UV light can damage your eyes as well as your skin, leading to long-term problems, such as cataracts and macular degeneration. Our optical quality sunglasses offer excellent protection against UV light, helping to keep your eyes safe.
If you wear spectacles you needn't miss out on stylish sunglasses. At Eric Mercer's, we offer a wide range of attractive designs which can be made up to your personal prescription. Our prescription sunglasses are available in all lens types including single vision, varifocals, bifocals and even the latest thinner, lighter lenses. All are guaranteed to block out 100% of harmful UV rays.
Fast-reacting transitions lenses also offer 100% UV protection. Transitions darken in sunlight but stay clear indoors, allowing you to enjoy comfortable vision both indoors and outside. Alternatively, new Transitions XTRActive lenses go darker than standard Transitions - even inside your car. They also maintain a light residual tint indoors. Transitions XTRActive lenses are ideal if you spend a lot of time outdoors and/or do a lot of driving.
Polarized lenses offer extra clarity, improved contrast and enhanced colour perception by eliminating reflected glare. This makes them ideal for driving as well as outdoor activities like cycling, fishing and sailing.
