Celebrate National Sunglasses Day by Krystle Morgan
June 27th is National Sunglasses Day and Optical Allusions is excited to celebrate with a new sunglasses special for the month of June! Starting June 1st, Optical Allusions will be offering 20% off ready-to-wear sunglasses. We have a variety of quality top name brands for men and women alike, including Oakley, Wiley X, RayBan, Maui Jim, and Coach.
National Sunglasses Day is an annual holiday to promote awareness of the harmful effects of UV rays. Just as our skin can be damaged by sun exposure, so can our eyes. Exposure to UV light over time can accelerate the development of cataracts, as well as contribute to the development of macular degeneration and other serious conditions. The Vision Council stresses that even if it is an overcast day or you are already wearing contact lenses, your eyes can still be exposed to UV damage. Sunglasses are more than just a fashion statement! Sunglasses with UV protection are the best way to combat UV damage. As UV damage is cumulative, there is no better time than the present to start protecting your eyes. For 2019, The Vision Council is asking everyone to post selfies wearing their sunglasses with that hashtag #SunglassSelfie on June 27th to help spread this important message.
All ready-to-wear sunglasses offered at Optical Allusions have UV protective lenses. We can also make prescription UV protective lenses in a sunglass tint of your choice. Our skilled opticians will help match you with a great pair of shades to suit your lifestyle. We are happy to share that we now have Saturday hours for your convenience. Stop in today to shop our collection or call us at (717) 258-8737 to find out more!
