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.

Transitions® photochromatic lenses

See life in a whole new light

Transitions clear
Transitions lenses in their clear state

During sight tests i’m often asked about photochromatic lenses, so called “lenses that go dark in the sun“.

Basically these lenses react to the ultra-violet light in sunlight and become darker. Indoor lighting emits very little ultra-violet light and so the lenses return to their clear state. The brighter the sun, the more ultra-violet light and so the darker the lens becomes. Simple! 🙂

We now offer the most advanced photochromic lenses with enhanced performance for healthy sight. Transitions VI lenses automatically adapt to changing light conditions to reduce eye fatigue and eye strain and are darker outdoors particularly in hot temperatures.
