Protect Your Eyes & Look Your Best

How Do I Choose the Right Sunglasses?

To select your perfect sunglasses, consider the following:

  • Frames

    You want your sunglasses to last, so choose durable, high-quality frames. Whether you choose plastic, acetate, aluminum, stainless steel or even wooden frames, make sure that the frames fit well, look good, and are comfortable to wear.

  • Lenses

    Lenses correct your vision, protect your eyes and enhance your style. Always choose lenses that screen out 100% of UV rays. You can also choose special features like anti-glare, polarized shades or tints. To prevent damage, select durable lenses.

  • Shape

    Sunglass shapes not only express your unique style; they provide a protective barrier against the elements. Wrap-around sunglasses shield your eyes from wind and flying debris. The right frames also complement your face and help you bring your best features forward.

  • Prescription

    Once you’ve undergone an eye exam, you can purchase sunglasses with the same prescription as your regular glasses. Wearing prescription sunglasses allows you to enjoy the outdoors while protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays.

I had an incredible experience with Dr. Afshar, and I am so glad I found this office. I am extremely... nearsighted and have astigmatism, and my previous Optometrist (of about 25 years) has only been able to correct my vision to 20/40 for as long as I can remember, but my vision with contacts was still never crisp or totally clear. He recommended I try to find a doctor who specializes in hard contact lenses, so I decided to get a second opinion. I saw Dr. Afshar today and am so impressed by his knowledge and experience. He is EXTREMELY kind and understanding and so patient when answering questions. I never felt rushed at all. The technology he uses seems to be light-years ahead of what I’m used to, and I actually cried happy tears when he told me I was reading letters from the 20/25 line. I feel as though he genuinely wants to help me achieve the best possible vision, and I haven’t felt that way in a long time. I am so appreciative and so excited to finally be able to see the world around me in better detail. Thank you so much, Dr. Afshar!

I went in for an appointment and it was so smooth! I got my contacts delivered to my door before I e... ven ran out of the sample pairs Dr. Afshar gave me. The optician was also incredibly easy to work with and I was really happy they had almost every eyeglass frame trend for Spring/Summer that I've seen online.

I need an eye exam with a short notice and the secretary at Heller Eyecare manages to provide me a s... lot even though their regular schedule is full. What impresses me even more is the service they provide. The secretary, technician and eye doctor are all fantastic! Great job!

Dr afshar personal yet professional.. great experience every time I go
- Jan. 13, 2020
The best optometrist we’ve been to! They go out of their way to accommodate and helped find the be... st glasses for my daughter. Her glasses were under warranty when they broke, but we had moved out of state and Heller still made sure we got her new frames and swapped out her lenses and sent them to us! I’m sad to have moved because we were always very pleased with their friendly service and the way they always put their patients first.

This is a wonderful practice. I stumbled upon it while looking for a contact lens exam close to my ... house. Dr. Suraj Afshar is kind, professional, knowledgeable about all things eye, and genuinely wants to help you. I was blown away by this last quality. He truly went above and beyond to find a brand of contacts I was comfortable wearing. When I got home, my husband decided to also make an appointment and he had a very similar experience. Cannot recommend this place enough and so happy we've found a great spot down the street for all of our eye care needs. Look no further!
- Oct. 18, 2019
This morning I had an excellent experience with Dr. Suraj Afshar. He is highly informed and made my ... trip to the doctor as painless as possible! No pressure to buy anything, highly consultative. I'd recommend Heller Eyecare to all of my friends and family in need of primary care.

State of the art care. No drops in the eyes...no driving home with sun glasses and blurry vision. Mo... re than that you get a complete understanding of the "health" of your eyes. Highly recommended.

Sunglasses FAQs

What are the benefits of photochromic sunglasses?

Photochromic lenses (with or without prescription) adjust to brightness. They darken as you step outside on a sunny day and get lighter when you go indoors. This means that you can wear the same glasses everywhere without having to switch from regular glasses to sunglasses.

Are sunglass lens coatings worth it?

While sunglasses provide plenty of protection for your eyes, lens coatings add even more benefits. You can choose anti-reflective coatings to cut down on glare and make driving safer. Tinted sunglasses can help you see colors and detail more distinctly. Scratch-resistant coatings help prevent damage so you can enjoy your shades for longer.

Is it OK to wear sunglasses with contacts?

Unless your contact lenses provide 100% UV protection — most don’t — always remember to don your sunglasses before heading outdoors. Sunglasses with 100% UV protection screen out harmful rays and winds that tend to dry out your eyes more quickly. This is good news for contact lens wearers who run the risk of developing dry eye symptoms.

How to tell if sunglasses have UV protection?

To make sure that your sunglasses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, make sure to purchase your shades from a licensed optometrist.
