With 300 plus days of sunshine every year in Colorado, we like our sunglasses around here. We have seen some great strides in both styles and in sunglass technology over the last couple of years. We are however, really excited about our newest addition, TAVAT sunglasses, now available at Europtics Cherry Creek North location.

Not only are these great looking sunglasses, but TAVAT sunglasses have a whole new TLT lens technology called Melanin. TAVAT’s sunglasses are infused with a synthetic melanin to provide improved clarity, enhanced contrast and ultimate eye protection without any color distortion. The synthetic melanin act in much the same way natural melanin does, blocking both UV rays and up to 98% of harmful violet-blue light which contributes to age-related macular degeneration. This added filter enhances contrast and true colors for a sharper image. TAVAT sunglasses are also available with a polarizing filter, making these sunglasses great for sports enthusiasts and drivers alike.

We’ve been a fan of Maui Jim sunglasses for years. They have always been fun and functional, with some of the best sun optics available anywhere. What they have never been is flashy. Maui Jim just changed all that with their new Silk Crystal collection available now at Europtics Cherry Creek North. Handcrafted in Italy, each pair of Silk Crystal sunglasses are a one-of-a-kind piece featuring artwork by internationally renown Maui artist Charlie Lyon. Each piece is one of a kind, uniquely numbered and sold with a certificate of authenticity.

Most Colorado adults have a pair of sunglasses (unless they are driving east or west during rush hour it seems) we wear when it’s bright out, whether for skiing, golfing, picnicking,  or even just looking cool. Most of us however, are failing our children when it comes to protecting their eyes from the damaging UV radiation of sunlight, which affect children under 16 far greater then their parents. At a mile or more above sea level those rays are even more damaging to our children’s eyes. Here is a story and video from The Wall Street Journal which we has your to read over and watch. Europtics carries stylish eyeglasses and sunglasses for children as well as adults. There is plenty of summer left, protect your kids eyes the way you do their skin this summer.

Kids-Sunglasses-UV-Protection11School is out and summer is here in full force. If you can pry the video game controllers from your children’s hands and send them outside, make sure you do so with a pair of sunglasses from Europtics. Sunglasses for kids you ask? Why? We’re glad you asked.

Did you know that the lens of your child’s eye transmits about 70% more UV radiation than do adult eyes, putting their retina at greater risk? Did you also know that the cells of the lens of our eyes are never replaced and the proteins never replenished. Kids also look up more, which means they are constantly looking up into the sun. Therefore, the sooner you protect your children’s eyes the less damage they need worry about later in life.

Kids under 10 are at a higher risk for both skin and eye damage because their eyes are more fragile, especially at our elevated altitude. At Europtics we have a great selection of affordable sunglasses for kids. Stop into one of our stores today and let us help you find some wonderful and fun sunglasses for your kids. Plus, you’ll save big during our 30th Anniversary Sale too!
