Our eyes are up to 10 times more sensitive to UV light than our skin. We recommend wearing sunglasses as it is just important as wearing sun cream on sunny days. Harmful UV light is associated with Age Related Macular Degeneration and cataracts.

At Peter Smith Opticians, we have a wide variety of sunglasses offering UV protection.  We stock sunglasses for all ages and many of them can be used as prescription sunglasses.


Maui Jim sunglasses use patented PolarizedPlus2® technology.  These sunglasses go beyond shielding your eyes from glare and harmful UV to reveal and enhance the world’s true vivid colours in detail.  Maui Jim lenses eliminate 99.9% of glare and counteract the colour flattening effect of other polarised lenses allowing you to see an amazing difference immediately.
