Prescription Sunglasses in Buffalo and Rochester, NY

Sunglasses are a staple of many summer wardrobes, but they’re an important part of keeping your eyes healthy all year round. After all, any bright sunlight — from the hottest, sunniest days to the surprisingly harsh glare off of snow — can threaten your vision and eye health.

Our member practices offer large, diverse, and endlessly stylish collections of sunglasses in Buffalo, Rochester, and throughout Western New York. It’s our goal to make protecting your eyes easy and make sure you look great while you do it!

Sunglasses Shield Your Eyes from Harmful
UV Light

Direct and reflected sunlight is important to keep out of your eyes, as that harsh light can harm the delicate structures in your eyes and not only impede your vision, but permanently damage it. Many of the sunglasses you’ll find in each of our network of stores provide 100% UV protection to keep your eyes safe and healthy over time!
