Sunglasses

Our tag line at Europtics is “The Art Of Optics”. It is something we believe in. We think eyewear is much more than a medical device, it is an extension of your personality in the same way a great suit, dress or even a tie is. Just like you, we are sometimes stopped by how great two items come together to make something even more beautiful than each of them separately. This great tortoise clip made for this pair of Anne et Valentine frame gave us pause and we just wanted to share. What art can we make for you?

Summer is fast approaching (despite Winter’s latest attempt to stick around) and as the weather warms, we will all spend more time outside. This is a great time to get a new pair of sunglasses for every member of your family. The folks at eyeSmart and the American Academy of Ophthalmology have put together this infographic on being Sun Smart and educating us on the importance of sunwear to protect our eyes.
