Before you buy your next summer shades, visit SJEA—because there’s more to sunglasses than looking good in them. You need quality lenses that protect your eyes from dangerous UV rays, which can cause cancers, cataracts, and irreversible macular degeneration.
South Jersey Eyewear is serious about sunglasses. Our prescription and nonprescription offerings provide 100 percent UV protection and block nearly 90 percent of annoying sun glare.
Skilled opticians can recommend the right frame style, lens, and color for your facial features. Plus, we’ll even perform a UV analysis of your current sunglasses.
As you partake in summer celebrations, SJEA and the Prevent Blindness America urge you to be aware of the risks associated with fireworks—especially now that certain fireworks are legal in NJ.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 9,000 fireworks-related injuries occur every year. A significant number of these injuries involve the eye—with the most common victim being children under the age of 15.
This year, as always, everyone at South Jersey Eye Associates encourages you to leave fireworks to the professionals and avoid marring your celebrations with a trip to the emergency room.
