Dr. Brad Speaks…

Written by on March 7th 2012

Spring has sprung and it’s time to start those outdoor projects, but don’t forget to wear your sunglasses!  Wearing sunglasses provides benefits beyond the obvious comfort and looking even cooler than you already are.  A good pair of sunglasses blocks 100% of the sun’s UV rays.  Why is this important?  The eyelids are the second most likely spot to get skin cancer and exposure to UV rays is a proven cause of skin cancer.  Pterygin, a non-malignant but vision threatening growth on the cornea, is another harmful effect of UV exposure.

But, wait…there’s more!

The acceleration of the onset of cataracts and macular degeneration are caused by the accumulated exposure of UV throughout your life.

So now you have all the excuses you need to get yourself a fantastic pair of sunglasses!

Willkommen to the Future of Sunglasses!!!

Written by on February 23rd 2012

Eye Spy has always been a big fan of Mykita frames, but when we saw their line of Mylon Sunglasses…we flipped out!  They are a perfect blend between fashion and function.  They are made of a polyamide-based material which is lightweight, durable, and great for an active lifestyle.  Not to mention,  they are super stylish!  Each frame in the Mylon collection provides lots of coverage from the sun’s harmful UV rays.  Also, a special hydrophobic coating makes drops of water or particles of dirt immediatly bead up and roll of the lenses, keeping visiblity to an optimum.  Wow, Mykita has thought of everything with this collection!!!
