It's Sunglass Season!

Hey! Even in Cleveland  the sun comes out. It's springtime… almost summer, and it's time to think about sunglasses. At Skyvision we have everything to meet your sunglasses needs. We have high fashion names like Fendi and Coach, and we have some of the most high-tech offerings from companies like Oakley, Maui Jim, and Nike.

So why would you want to wear sunglasses? Well, there are two very important reasons to think about wearing sunglasses, even when it's not terribly sunny out. The first, and most important reason, is to protect your eyes from ultraviolet light. UV light is actually toxic to many of the structures in the eye including the lens and the retina. There is some very good research that shows that prolonged exposure to UV light causes cataracts, and in people with light colored eyes there seems to be an association between ultraviolet light exposure and macular degeneration.

Why else might you wear sunglasses? Lens technology has advanced so far in sunglasses that it's actually possible to ENHANCE your vision for a particular activity by wearing the appropriate type of sunglasses. For instance, the Nike Speed lens is dynamite for baseball. Nike also makes the very best lens for golf with lenses that enhance your ability to see contour and multiple shades of green on the golf course.

And who hasn't seen a photo of Lance Armstrong in his Oakley Jawbones careening around the corner in the Tour de France?! Oakley has pioneered the technology of “swappable” lenses, and the Jawbone is a great example of how one frame can accommodate many different activities simply by swapping out the lenses.

Skyvision centers is your headquarters for all of your sunglasses needs!
