Autumn Glare 

It's hard to believe it's Autumn, and some of us at Deirdre Cooke Opticians are already counting down the sleeps to Christmas! Unfortunately we did not get much of the tropical sunshine, but does anyone notice how bright the sun is every morning and evening?! Due to the sun sitting lower on the horizon, there is probably more blinding glare than in the middle of the Summer.

The best way to overcome this glare are by wearing polarised lenses, which:
#1: Eliminate the 100% blinding reflective glare
#2: Give UV protection
#3: Offer better clarity and true colour perception 

Why not treat yourself to a set of Polarised Sunglasses which offer all of the above, or don't forget to try dropping hints for that Christmas present?! Remember, vouchers are always available!

Crizal Prevencia

Blue light is emitted from artifical lights which can be found from overhead lighting, laptops, desktop computers, tablets, iPads and smartphones, just to name a few. Crizal Preventia is the first lens to block out the most harmful section of this hazardous blue light spectrum. It is, therefore, the newest technology in a clear lens which provides the most complete protection in terms of visual health. Not only do you receive a lens which offers glare reduction, is smudge resistant, dust and water repellant and has a 2 year no-quibble guarantee against stratches, it also protects your eyes from the damage of harmful blue rays!
