Hakim Optical has been providing quality prescription glasses and sunglasses to Canadians for over 50 years, but did you know we also carry a wide variety of non-prescription sunglasses?
Just because you don’t need corrective eyewear doesn’t mean you should buy just any type of sunglasses. The summer sun and its harmful UV rays can damage eyes and vision. Extended exposure to UV rays has been shown to increase the change of developing eye-health issues such as cataracts, macular degeneration, pinguecula and pterygium and photokeratitis.
To help protect your eye health, purchase non-prescription sunglasses that block 99% – 100% of UV rays. Polarized lenses or anti-reflective coatings can provide additional protection by reducing the amount of the sun’s glare that reaches your eyes. This is especially important if you plan on spending time on the water or are driving towards the sun.
Every Hakim Optical location has a licensed optician in-store that can help you find the perfect non-prescription sunglasses for your specific needs. They work with each customer to find frames that complement a person’s style and preference and can recommend the best lens and coating to provide maximum protection against UV damage.
Hakim Optical is proud to carry Revo lenses. These lightweight polycarbonate lenses were developed by a NASA optical engineer and were inspired by the coating that protects satellites from radiation in space. We can grind these specialized lenses to fit the frames of your choice—keeping you stylish and protected.
