Designer Sunglasses

Eye Health of Somerset offers you high-end designer sunglasses by Maui Jim, Oakley, Ray Ban and Fossil, among others.

Why is it important to take good care of your eyes with high quality sunglasses? There are several reasons, but some of the most important are:

  • Sunglasses should provide protection from ultraviolet rays in sunlight. Ultraviolet (UV) light damages the cornea and the retina. Good sunglasses can eliminate most harmful UV rays.
  • Sunglasses must provide protection from intense light. When the eye receives too much light, it naturally constricts the iris and makes the pupil opening smaller to restrict the amount of light that enters your eye. Once it has constricted the iris as far as it can, the next step is squinting. If there is still too much light, as there can be when sunlight is reflecting off of snow, the result is damage to the retina. Good sunglasses can block light entering the eyes by as much as 97 percent to avoid damage.
  • Sunglasses provide protection from glare. Certain surfaces, such as water, can reflect a great deal of light, and the bright spots can be distracting or can hide objects. Good sunglasses can completely eliminate this kind of glare using polarization.

When you buy a pair of cheap sunglasses, you often give up all of these benefits and can even make things worse. For example, if your sunglasses offer no UV protection, you increase your exposure to UV rays. Cheap sunglasses block some of the light, causing your iris to open and make the pupil opening larger to allow more light in. This lets in more UV rays as well, increasing the damage UV rays can cause to the retina. Stop by our Somerset or Stanford Optical Stores and choose your new pair of sunglasses, with or without prescription.

STYLE, PERFORMANCE & GREAT VISION

If some other optical providers offer One Hour Service, why should you wait? The most common problem we encounter is a patient unhappy with their glasses made at a discounted eyeglass facility. A high quality pair of eyeglasses can’t be delivered in a “fast food” style.

Checks and balances are in place because we hold our vendors to the highest standards. Unlike many big retailers, we don’t own the manufacturing or the lens labs so we are able to hold them accountable to your satisfaction.

You apply sunscreen before heading out for a day outdoors. But do you think about your eyes? Though most of us understand the importance of protecting our skin from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays, most Americans still don’t know that exposing their eyes to the sun’s UVA and UVB rays can be just as damaging.

The effects of UV are cumulative. In fact, every year 3.2 million people go blind from eye conditions caused by prolonged exposure to UV.

However, considering that 80 percent of a person’s lifetime exposure to UV occurs by age 18, wearing high quality sunwear that blocks most UVA and UVB rays is just as important for kids as adults.

So what can you do? Ask us which solution is best for you and your child.

DON’T SACRIFICE FASHIONABLE STYLE OR HIGH-LEVEL SPORTS PERFORMANCE WITH OUR HIGH-END PRESCRIPTION SUNGLASSES!

Extremely professional not prejudiced against any customer in they do everything they can to help service our needs. Out of all the eye doctors in Somerset this is the one that I have always came back 2 through the years. I just want to say that they have amazing staff and doctors, I always thought that when somebody says that they feel like they are at home at a place like this it sounds corny, but really and truly that's what it's like there.

Dr. Murray and her staff at Eye Health of Stanford and Eye Health of Somerset are excellent! My family and I have been going to them for 20 years now and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. They also have an exceptional technician Callie Rogers who goes above and beyond to make sure my family’s needs are better!

Very friendly, courteous and thorough in exam. The only thing I could suggest. Is scheduling fewer patients at same time. Took a while to get seen by optometrist. Only one there and they kept her really running.

Moved from Northern KY area last year to Stanford, KY. I needed to have my eyes checked due to not being able to read small print. I went to see Dr. Murray for a checkup and I needed a new prescription. The exam was thorough, the ladies in the office were friendly and Dr. Murray took her time with me. A very pleasant experience. I am thankful I found Eye Health of Stanford to take care of my aging eyes!!
