Prescription Sunglasses

Want To Know Where You’re Going In Life, Wear Your Shades!

Prolonged periods of exposure to sunlight can cause serious damage to your eyes: not only to the cornea, but also the lens of the eye itself. You know this. So to avoid damaging to your eyes, you wear your sunglasses, particularly when you’re outdoors, at the beach, on the water, skiing or driving. You do the right thing.

However, if you’re anything like the majority of people climbing the hill of their 40s, you now need a little bit of visionary help, particularly when trying to see something closer then the length of your arm or print smaller than a peanut.

What to do? Are you switching back and forth between your sunglasses and prescription glasses, or even, horror of horrors, shamelessly trying to wear your sunglasses over your eyeglasses? Heaven forbid you use those ghastly old-fashioned “clip-ons”.

Cool Prescription Sunglasses?

Good news, help is here! Believe it or not, groovy, affordable prescription sunglasses do actually exist!

Long gone are the days when your average pair of prescription sunglasses were expensive, unfashionable and with a distinct lack of style. The times when you could only buy bulky, rectangular frames with very little in the way of colour are out. No longer do people have valid, reasonable excuses to avoid prescription sunglasses.

At John O’Connor Optometrists in Auckland we stock such a wide variety of styles and brands; you’ll be able to find the perfect pair for your personality and lifestyle. All our prescription sunglasses give 100% UV protection, guaranteed!

No more switching back and forth between glasses or having to squint painfully while trying desperately to read your book on holiday. You’ll even be able to read text message while outside. Imagine!

Maybe over summer you would just like a break from dealing with contact lenses.

Prescription Sunglasses Are The Sensible Option.

Prescription sunglasses not only correct your vision, they also protect it and our opticians strongly recommend you wear prescription sunglasses while out in the New Zealand sun.

To ensure optical health we can provide sunglass lenses tailored to your prescription, to keep your eyes protected while giving you a clear view. We offer a fashionable selection of shapes, frames and colours.

We have sunglass styles suitable for both men and women from iconic brands like Armani and Lacoste, and with prices that are just as great as the frames, you’ll end up getting two pairs. Our Bill Bass polarised sunglasses start from just $189. Bill Bass sunglasses complete with tinted prescription lenses and UV protection in the stock range start from $279. We also sell HOYA NuPolar, polarised lenses that increase visual clarity and colour perception.

We will even give you free prescription tinted lenses* with every second pair of glasses you purchase from our West Auckland or Newmarket optometrists. How convenient! That’s two for the price of one!
