Protecting Your Vision

Many eye doctors now recognize that protecting the eyes from undue exposure to Ultra Violet rays is a necessary component of good eye health. Do you:

• Spend a lot of time outdoors?

• Drive during times when the sun’s light is most intense?

• Drive as the sun is setting?

If you answered yes, then sunglasses are a necessity. Cohen Optometry also provides the best selection of progressive lenses, anti-reflective coatings and polarized sunglasses. These glasses will help to protect your eyes during time outdoors, as well as reduce glare, squinting, and eye strain that often prevent glasses wearers from fully enjoying themselves outdoors.
