  • Aviators
    Aviators aren’t letting go this season, continuing with more futuristic designs and pops of color, especially in the lenses.
  • Circulars
    Round shapes paired with bold patterns, prints, and colors tout a look that is trendy, yet sophisticated.
  • All that shimmers
    Glitter, gold, and shimmering metallics in each trend are on the rise, reflecting the brightness of the season.

    Feeling pretty? See the world through rose-colored glasses with this season’s ever popular hue: Pink.
  • Clear Frames
    Streamlined and modern, opaque acetate frames available at optometrists in Chicago offer a variety of hues, shapes, and transparencies, including this season’s softer, more muted colors which enhance femininity.

Wear Sunglasses for Style and Protection

Optometrists in Chicago know you love sporting the latest sunglass styles, but we at Village Eyecare want to also remind you of the importance of protecting your eyes with quality eyewear. When selecting this season’s sunglasses, protect your vision and yourself with:

  • High-Quality Lenses
    Free of distortions and imperfections, and perfectly matched in color to reduce eye strain.
  • UV Protection
    UV radiation can damage your eyes as it does your skin, as well as contribute to cataracts, growths, and macular degeneration. Be certain to protect your eyes with eyewear offering 100% UV protection.  Bronze, copper, and reddish-browns tints can help with filtering UV rays, and wraparounds models protect your eyes from every angle.
  • Polarization
    Polarized lenses reduce light intensity, haze, and glare, offering comfort and protection against the occasionally dangerous intensity of reflected light.

Don’t suffer through sunglass season without prescription sunglasses.  As you Chicago Optometrist, Village Eyecare offer the latest in fashionable and functional eyewear to meet your every need.
