Sunglasses should not only reduce light transmission, but should also offer protection from hazardous radiation. All sunglasses dispensed by Gardener & Basson provide 100% UV protection.
Although most solar UV radiation is absorbed by the earth’s ozone layer, a very small amount still reaches the retina. UV absorption by the eye may contribute to age-related and other changes in the ocular tissue and a number of serious eye conditions.
Polarised lenses offer the best anti-glare performance and are recommended for use on and around water (for example for fishing, sailing and water skiing).
We always recommend high quality prescription sunglasses should be worn regularly in sunny conditions to minimise any harmful effects on your long term eyesight.
We offer a great range of sunglasses including the popular Wimbledon range, so we're sure to have something to suit your style, needs and budget.
