Importance of Buying Quality Sunglasses for Performance and Health

nike and maui jim 800×675

As the weather gets warmer and snow melts away, we are inspired to take our workouts to the outdoors. For many people, that means walking, running, biking or other outdoor activities that will expose our eyes to the sun making quality sunglasses a must. Like anything else, poor quality equals poor performance and the same applies to sunglasses, especially if you are wearing them for long periods of time outdoors. Quality construction, superior optics and eye protection are huge differentiators when it comes to sunglasses and their level of performance.

Maui Jim and Nike sunglasses are the most popular and high quality sunglasses that we carry in our clinic. Maui Jim’s proprietary 9 layer coating system with the highest technology polarization on the market provide color, clarity and detail like you’ve never seen. Maui Jim sunglasses are manufactured to create the most optimal visual performance available and were designed with active beach sporting activities in mind. They will also look really cool with all of your beach wear!

For those involved in the more intense sports, our Nike line of sunglasses provide a superior level of comfort and snug fit because the last thing you want to worry about is your sunglasses falling off when bending over to pick up your golf ball or jumping up to spike a volleyball. For these and other reasons (endorsements??), professional athletes are often seen wearing Nike sunglasses.

Both Maui Jim and Nike provide the highest level of eye protection from ultraviolet light (UVA/UVB) and other harmful radiation from the sun which can prematurely age the eyes leading to cataracts, macular degeneration and skin cancer. They also come in most prescriptions for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, bifocals and progressives.
