Are Your Eyes Ready For The Holiday Season?

There’s always a lot to organize at this time of the year so it’s quite natural for some things get pushed to one side or forgotten. That’s why we’re here to remind you to make sure you keep looking after your eyes on your to do list! Here are some useful tips we’ve put together to help you protect your eyes this holiday season.

Have A Spare Pair Of Glasses

Spare Pair Of Glasses

How many pairs of glasses do you have? Whether you use your glasses for driving, reading, watching TV, or working, if something happens to your main pair it’s always a good idea to have a back-up. Glasses can be damaged or broken so you don’t want to be stuck without yours for any amount of time, especially over the festive season when getting to a store for repairs might not be so easy.

Wear Contacts? Keep A Pair Of Glasses Handy

If you normally wear contact lenses, it’s important to also keep a pair of glasses handy to give your eyes a break now and then. During the colder weather, your eyes can get irritated and dried out by wind and heating, but giving yourself a little break from contacts and wearing your glasses instead can help combat this.

Fashion Frames

Coordinate Your Outfit With Fashion Frames

If you’re going to be dressing up for a party or event over the festive season, why not make sure your glasses match your outfit and complete your look? Frames come in so many colours, patterns and shapes now, so it’s not uncommon to see people owning several pairs now. How about building up your eyewear wardrobe from our stylish collections so you have something for every occasion?

Combat Glare With Sunglasses

The sun is at its lowest during the festive season, making glare more of a problem. Whether you’re out walking or driving, a good pair of prescription sunglasses can make all the difference, and even better, with a pair of polarized sunglasses, Canada’s winter sun definitely won’t be hindering you!

You’ll certainly be giving your eyes the protection they deserve, with a premium polarized lens coating, mirror tints, and polarized mirror tint options available once you pick frames from our online store. Remember, we can also turn any frames into sunglasses, so the choice is endless!

There’s also the option of Transitions® lenses, which react and darken as you step into bright sunlight, offering full UV protection without the need for 2 pairs of glasses.

Order Glasses Online And Avoid The Shops

With Covid-19 still affecting life, you may not want to visit a store. So why not order your new glasses from the comfort of your own home?
