Our ‘Fun In The Sun’ offer is here!

Summer is well on its way and that means it’s time for ‘Fun In The Sun’! We currently have an exciting offer available for you, where you can book a new contact lens fitting or refit into a different contact lens brand and get a $50 coupon towards your next pair of glasses or sunglasses! As part of our sunglasses sale, you can also order a spare pair of sunglasses and get 30% off, plus a free tint (excluding a polarized coating).

But how do you know which contact lenses or sunglasses are right for your lifestyle? Let’s look at some popular options that help you see better while protecting your eyes from the sun.

Contact lenses vs glasses

Contact lenses let you see the world around you – Contacts offer the same vision correction as prescription glasses with the added bonus of providing sharp, panoramic vision that is unobstructed by frames.

Freedom to do the things you love – If you have worn glasses in the past then you know how inconvenient they can be when trying to play summer sports or while wearing protective gear. Contact lenses let you have the freedom to move around without any interference in your play or flexibility – no more glasses fogging up and clouding your vision, constantly having to push your glasses back up your nose, or worrying about your frames getting damaged or breaking!

Improved confidence – Kids and teens can be self-conscious about glasses, while contact lenses let kids thrive without having to worry about how they look. In fact, a 2009 study by Ohio State University’s College of Optometry found that kids reported higher levels of satisfaction with their appearance, sporting performance, schoolwork, and social status while wearing contact lenses.

Contact lenses can be permanent or optional – If you commit to wearing contact lenses, it doesn’t have to be permanent; they can be worn solely for special occasions, while playing sports, or when you’re on vacation, so you can swap between them and your glasses whenever you need to.

Types of contact lenses

We carry the latest contact lenses so you can feel confident knowing you are getting the best vision correction for your eyes. We offer popular brands including:

  • Acuvue
  • Alcon
  • Coopervision
  • Bausch & Lomb

We also offer contact lenses for your specific vision needs such as astigmatism. Once you have found the right contact lenses for your vision, you can easily reorder them online on our website.

Do you need new sunglasses?

Yes, it’s always important to have a pair of sunglasses on hand no matter what the season! Sunglasses provide exceptional UVA and UVB protection and should be worn whenever it is bright outside over your contact lenses, even if the weather is slightly overcast.

Right now, we have all the high-quality sunglass brands you love at our store locations, including Ray-Ban, Guess, Michael Kors, Versace, Oakley, and more. With our current offer, you can enjoy having more than one pair of sunglasses in case you need to keep a pair in the car, or in the office and benefit from having a tint of your choice too! Different color tints can help your eyes adjust to various light conditions, making your vision more relaxed and strain-free.
