Fashion Meets Function
Sunglasses are integral to our daily lives. Whether you’re hanging out at the beach or on your way to the office, they’re a must-have accessory in sunny California.

It’s important to wear sunglasses all year round, even on cloudy days: clouds don’t stop UV light.
Sunglasses for Children
Don’t forget to make sure your kids are wearing shades as well! Children’s eyes are at particular risk for sun-related complications, especially later in life. Children receive more annual sun exposure than adults, and their growing eyes don’t filter harmful UV rays as effectively as adult eyes do.
Because sun damage is cumulative, early exposure to UV radiation during childhood can build up over the years and present as long-term eye problems later in life. These problems include cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, both of which can lead to vision loss.
