Sunglasses

Living in Florida subjects us to high amounts of UV exposure. Volusia Eye Associates
is proud to now offer prescription as well as non-prescription sunglasses at our optical boutique. Now, you can receive your sunglasses at the same place you receive your advanced eye care services.

Both Functional & Stylish, Prescription Sunglasses Are The Way To Go!


Our eyes are sensitive. Prolonged exposure to the sun can lead to a variety of ailments, some of which can be minor but equally as painful and irritating such as a migraine. Other issues can cause more serious and adverse effects such as Pterygium (Surfer’s eye), Cataracts, Glaucoma, or Macular Degeneration. Prevention is always the key to safeguarding our eyes, and sunglasses can provide full protection against the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

Volusia Eye has the perfect pair of sunglasses for your face, vision, and lifestyle! We also offer a selection of sunglasses from top brand names like Costa del Mar, Ray Ban, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Liz Claiborne, and more. Prescription sunglasses are a great way to ensure that you can see clearly, and also have the correct UV protection. In addition, polarized lenses are a popular choice for fishermen, surfers, and beachgoers to reduce glare when spending time on the water or relaxing on our bright sandy beaches.

Facts About Prescription and Non-prescription Sunglasses


How do UV rays affect my eyes?

UVA and UVB rays can be harmful to your eyes. They can cause cataracts when the proteins inside the natural lens become opaque or cloudy. Cataracts can interfere with your vision and must be removed surgically to improve vision. UV exposure to unprotected eyes can also cause retinal damage, changes in the eye tissues, and a non-permanent, painful condition called photokeratitis.

What are polarized lenses?

Polarized lenses filter out certain types of glare. They are ideal for boaters, fishermen, surfers, golfers, and any other types of outdoor activities. Costa Del Mar and Zeiss are known for their polarized lens technology.

What types of glasses can I choose from?

We offer the latest styles from Costa Del Mar, Ray Ban, Liz Claiborne, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, and more. Come into our optical boutique at our New Smyrna Beach office to see what we have available.

What additional types of protection should I consider?

Wear a broad-brimmed hat to reduce sun exposure on your face. If you use prescription eyewear to correct your eyesight, ask about UV-blocking contact lenses.
