Sunglasses: Protect Your Eyes
Sunglasses and sunwear are must-haves for protecting your eyes from the harmful elements that they are exposed to. Outdoor recreation and fun in the sun are a way of life on Vancouver Island. We screen for dry eye at every exam, and for those that need more dry eye attention, we bring them back for a dry eye workup. For those who want to wear contact lenses, it is essential that they have a healthy tear film.

Benefits of Sunglasses
When choosing sunglasses, it’s essential to look for those that provide 100% UV protection. This ensures that the lenses block both UVA and UVB rays, offering comprehensive protection for the eyes. Additionally, sunglasses should be comfortable to wear, and, if needed, prescription sunglasses can be obtained for those who require vision correction.
