The sun emits UV rays which can be damaging to your eyes, even when it is cloudy. Glare and reflections can also cause difficulties, particularly around sand, water and snow – making it more difficult for you to see. Sunglasses can help to protect from these damaging rays, even in children. All sunglasses at Prince & Bates conform to British standards for UV protection for your safety meaning you can be confident the health of your eyes is being looked after. Our Dispensing Opticians can advise you on the most suitable lenses for your sunglasses to offer the best protection and vision, whether they are prescription or not.
The health of your eyes is important, but we know you want to look great in sunglasses too! We have designer fashion sun glasses, sports sunglasses and polarised lenses to help with reflection and glare. Names include Jimmy Choo, Gucci, Hugo Boss, Oakley, Rayban and Maui Jim alongside many more.

I've always had trouble finding sunglasses that suit me. They're usually too big, too small, or completely the wrong style for me. From the moment I walked through the door at Prince & Bates I felt like part of the family! Following my test I was guided through various styles and lens types that all looked great! I chose some beautiful Aspinal sunglasses and could've very easily picked another 5 pairs! I would highly recommend anyone to visit Prince & Bates if you are looking for an opticians who really cares about you!
