Gone is the Summer mural and now we have our Winter window depicting a wintry Christmas scene with Father Christmas flying high above the lavishly decorated tree.

Our window was once again painted by local signwriter Jason Howells of Traditional Sign Writing Services. Jason also does our Summer windows which are always just as amazing.

RB 8306 RayBan Tech Collection

Today we received our first of the new Ray-Ban Tech Collection. They are “designed with innovative materials and techniques” and “reflect Ray-Ban’s celebrated history of leading with style and technology.” For example the RB 8306 (pictured) is made out of Carbon Fibre and has polarised brown lenses for reduced glare.

The Carbon fibre sheet, made of seven layers and bonded with resin is water-cut for accuracy. While light and strong, carbon fibre frames are also flexible, comfortable and highly resistant.

Life is a Beach!

No matter what the weather, the sun always shines at Lawrence and Harris.

Today, local signwriter Jason Howells has delighted us with a gloriously sunny beach mural.

The 2010 version of our Caerphilly practice’s summer window features palm trees, an inviting ocean, a luscious golden beach and a yacht.

Over the past three summers Jason has given us sizzling variations on the beach theme, but this years is the largest and best yet!

The beach mural’s aim along with this blog post is to remind passers by of the importance of protecting your eyes from UV by wearing sunglasses, especially during the summer and when away on holidays.

UV and Sunglasses

We often feel we look sophisticated in sunglasses and we might find they also help us enjoy bright sunshine, but quality sunglasses can actually help maintain healthy eyesight.

Light contains ultraviolet (UV) radiation and while it’s invisible, its affects certainly aren’t. Apart from accelerating the ageing of our skin, it has the same effect on our eyes, particularly the crystalline lens within. UV can cause cataract, which turns our eye’s lens a near-opaque milky white. The only solution is to surgically remove the lens and replace it with a plastic lens implant. UV is also known to be a contributing factor in macular degeneration.
