Your eyes are precious: look after them with UV-protective sunglasses

Your eyes are precious: look after them with UV-protective sunglasses

Thu, February 29, 2024

As you know, the Australian sun takes no prisoners, and even though summer has officially ended, the UV rays can pack a serious punch. 

What you may not know is that the sun can cause all kinds of damage to your eyes, potentially causing dry eye syndrome, painful light sensitivity, pterygium (a fleshy kind of overgrowth on your eye), skin cancer (including on the eyelids), and the early arrival of cataracts. 

Sunglasses are a very easy way to avoid all of this. 

And the great news is that after you’ve had your refractive procedure at Medownick - whether that's SmartSight, LASIK, or Touchless Robotic Trans-PRK laser, or lensectomy or cataract surgery - you won’t need to buy prescription sunnies any more. Once you've been to Medownick you can choose any sunglasses that suit your style and your budget. 

It doesn’t matter whether you buy your sunglasses from the pharmacy, the service station, or your favourite high-end designer: the only “must-have” you need to look out for is that they include UV protection. The rest is up to you.
