Warm weather brings with it a slate of summer eyewear fashions that’ll have you chopping and changing throughout the season.
Whether you rock prescription lenses on the daily or collect sunnies like they’re going out of style, proper eyewear during the summer months is imperative— protecting your retinas from UV rays and saving your lids from harmful sun damage.
And yes, you should be wearing protective eyewear every single day in the summer.
Luckily, Bailey Nelson is here to help.
For a limited time only, the Bondi-born brand is offering customers two complete pairs of glasses for just $250. The promotion includes all handcrafted prescription glasses (anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coating), as well as their ever-popular polarised non-prescription sunnies.
And if you’re more of a screentime culprit than an outdoors buff, Baily Nelson will add a blue light filter to any optical frames for an additional $50.
ICYMI, blue light, also known as high-energy visible (HEV) light, is visible light that makes up on average between 25 and 30 percent of the light spectrum. While the majority of blue light exposure comes from the sun, it is also the light that is emitted from the screens of our favourite devices… think phones, laptops and tablets. This form of light has been found in recent years to be detrimental to our eyes, damaging to our skin, and also possesses the ability to throw the body’s biological clock, AKA circadian rhythms— that are regulated by light— out of whack.
Basically, eye protection should be as high on your list this summer as is SPF protection.
