At West U Vision we offer the best in Houston sunglasses and eyewear. Each year people suffer damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays, which are bad for the skin and eyes. Our sunglasses help protect eyes from harmful UV rays while acting as a fashionable accessory. We offer both prescription and non-prescription sunglasses. Sunglasses help to prevent skin cancer, cataracts and other eye diseases.
Cataracts are a clouding of the lens in the eye, which causes vision loss and blurry vision. 20% of cataract cases are caused by too much UV exposure to the eye. Cataracts can be treated with surgery, but can cause blindness and vision loss that cannot be reversed if it is not treated in time. This is why it’s important to shop for Houston sunglasses and to find sunglasses that block out 99 to 100% of all UVA and UVB radiation. All of our sunglasses, whether they are prescription or not, feature a protective and strong UV coating in order to ward off harmful rays from the sun.
Besides Houston sunglasses we also offer a fully stocked eyewear selection. West U Vision also carries transitional sunglasses, for those who often go in and out of doors and want the best of eyeglasses and sunglasses in one pair. Transitionals are shaded glasses that lighten and darken depending on the lighting situation. Transitionals can be worn indoors as well as outdoors. Once the wearer goes outside, the lenses darken into shades. They are easy and convenient and a great way to have prescription lenses and sunglasses at the same time. Transitionals come in prescription type lenses for those who cannot wear contact lenses. Our professional eyewear staff can help assist you with the selection of the best glasses that are right for your face and prescription as well. We have the best in name brand frames as well as budget friendly frames to fit everyone’s needs.
