Minishades – Polarised Sunglasses for Children

Here at Focus Medical Eye Centre, we understand how important it is to look after your little ones whilst out in the sunshine this summer. As parents and carers, we are particularly good at applying sun cream. However, one thing we are not prepared for or even had a solution for was protecting their eyes!

The World Health Organization suggests that 80% of your lifetime UV exposure occurs between birth and 18. So it’s especially important for children to wear sunglasses to protect their eyes from the short and long-term damage of UV light.

Minishades are 100% UV polarized sunglasses for children compliant with British Standards offering complete UV protection to your child’s eyes. Meaning that they are more than fit for duty protecting your little ones on the front line.

minishades 1                                                                       minishades 2

We all know how stylish we like to feel when we wear glasses. So why should children not feel the same? The Minishades we offer come in a range of different colours. Luckily for everyone, they are made from a virtually indestructible rubber material, BPA-free and super comfortable. This means they’re perfect for even the most extreme play and will last as long as they fit!

No matter how old your little one is we have a perfect fit size for them. Minishades come in 3 sizes; 0-3 years, 3-7 years and 8-12 years.

These sunglasses also have a special hide-and-seek  loss warranty. This means you’re ready for the worst-case scenario. After purchasing and registering online if they are damaged or lost you are able to claim a free replacement on 1 pair. All claims have a processing and shipping fee of £4.99 which is payable at the time of the claim.

All About Ray-Ban

Ray-Ban is a timeless, classic brand that produces some of the highest-quality glasses available on the market.  Ray-Bans are one of the most well-known and most loved designer brands on the planet. Here at Focus Medical Centre, we stock a wide selection of both sunglasses and prescription glasses from Rayban.

History of the  Ray-Ban

Back in the 1930s, the high flyers of the US Air Force needed protection against the harmful rays of the sun. Thus,  Ray-Ban was born. They used plastic frames and green lenses that could cut out the glare without obscuring vision. The sunglasses were then redesigned with a metal frame the following year and patented as the Ray-Ban Aviator. This technology expanded quickly to the likes of the police force and conquers of the great outdoors.

Towards the end of the 1950s,  Ray-Ban made a turn, focusing more so on everyday fashion. Towards the 1990s  Ray-Ban had fully established itself in fashion and pop culture. Style, music and technology were all booming for Rayban, causing them to have another massive surge in popularity. Which is still incredibly prominent today.

Over the years many styles had come and gone, but the  Ray-Ban remained. The iconic look of the frames became a true fashion statement, which had an indelible effect on culture for trendsetters around the world.


Why Choose  Ray-Ban?

In today’s society, there’s an incredibly long list of well-made and effective glasses available, prescription or not. So why choose  Ray-Ban? The fact of the matter is that  Ray-Bans are arguably one of the most prominent brands in the world and have been a staple in fashion for decades. Since their directional shift towards fashion, they have been a real hit amongst celebrities and the public alike; it’s clear to see why.

Are Ray-Bans Good Quality?

Their focus on fashion hasn’t meant there was a drop in quality. Ray-Ban clearly prides itself on its ability to design and manufacture frames and lenses of the highest quality. Their frames are durable and well-crafted. If you take the time and properly care for your glasses they will last for years.

Plus, over time this will save you money as you’re no longer having to frequently replace cheaper glasses.

 Ray-Ban clubmaster

The Way They Make You Feel

Due to the high quality and solid build, they feel like a luxury product. If you’ve ever owned a pair of  Ray-Bans you’ll know what I’m talking about. The sense of confidence they give you is unmatched; they always say if you feel good you look good.

No other glasses have had as much of an impact on the fashion and culture of the world as the  Ray-Ban. Just look at Hollywood!  Ray-Bans are not only the go-to for many actors off the big screen but the characters they play to share their appreciation for a good quality pair of glasses.

Think of the Top Gun movies for example. Your brain likely first goes to Fighter Jets, then to Tom Cruise and his aviators. They’re such an important piece of history and will likely be forever popular.

Get In Touch

If you are looking for  Ray-Ban Frames & Lenses and want to find stockists in East Sussex, then come into our store on the High Street in Hailsham, East Sussex and take a look at the many styles we have. And don’t forget, if you love Ray-Bans, then why not buy them as prescription sunglasses or just as standard sunglasses.

Prioritising Your Eye Care

Here at Focus Medical Eye Centre, we have built a reputation for offering the very best eye examinations possible. Using the latest technology, carried out by our resident specialists in an unrushed environment.

We believe in offering all our patients the very best level of care possible whenever it is needed and as such have made a change in how we deliver eye care.

We will now be offering all our patients an extended eye examination lasting 45 minutes and include all diagnostic scans as standard. This means Optomap wide-field retinal imaging and OCT ( advanced Macula and Glaucoma screening ) will be included. Which will allow us to assess the health of your eyes as thoroughly as possible.

As of September 2021, we will no longer be offering a basic NHS sight test as this only covers 10 minutes of our time. It does not include any diagnostic scans, which does not allow us to work to the standard we want to. Under current NHS rules, we are not permitted to see you as often as we would like, which also limits our ability to look after your eyes to the standard we want to.

We have now introduced our innovative Advanced Clinical Eye Care Plan which covers all your eye care for a small monthly fee of just £7.00 *

Prioritising Your Eye Care

Full benefits of the care plan are as follows:

Comprehensive Eye Examinations

  • 45 minute unrushed eye examination carried out by resident specialists using the latest technology.
  • All scans with interpretation are covered within the scheme whenever clinically necessary. This includes Optomap ultra-widefield retinal imaging and 3D OCT scans.
  • As many eye examinations as clinically needed without the 2 year NHS restrictions.
  • Standard Contact lens appointments covered (excludes specialist fitting and aftercare).
  • 1 child is covered by 1 plan. All children in one family are covered by 2 plans.

Access To Emergency Appointments & Prescribing

  • Unlimited emergency appointments, scans and eye care as needed.
  • Private prescribing of eye medication by our IP specialist Practitioners.

 Cost Savings On Spectacles

  • Affordable eyewear with 10% total price for plan members.
  • 50% off the total price on second pair purchases.
  • Children will have basic single vision lenses covered if a parent is on a plan.

Repairs And Servicing Of Spectacles

  • Free in-house repairs to spectacles and extended warranty on frames and lenses.
  • Basic single vision lenses are covered under a repair warranty once every 12 months for children.

* 12 month minimum contract applies.

We will of course also offer a Pay As You Go Option if this works better for you. A 45 minute eye examination including Optomap and OCT with our in-house specialists is £85.00 and a shorter eye examination for under 21’s with Optomap is available for £45.00

Beware of Cheap Sunglasses!

As we’ve seen a little bit more of the sun over the last few weeks, you might be thinking about picking up a new pair of sunglasses. There are plenty of different brands to choose from and many retailers will stock sunglasses. But when it comes to buying a new pair, you should always beware of cheap brands!

Although sunglasses are primarily worn to help you see better and shade your eyes from the sun, they actually play a vital role in protecting your eyes from UV radiation. Prolonged exposure to UV radiation can cause significant eye problems, such as cataracts, macula degeneration, pterygia, and pingueculae.

cheap sunglasses

Protecting your eyes from UV Radiation

When you’re out enjoying the sunshine, you’re always being exposed to solar radiation. This is particularly harmful to the eyes, so wearing a good pair of sunglasses will help block 100% of the suns UV radiation. Interestingly, your eyes still need protection when it’s cloudy, because the sun’s damaging UV rays can penetrate cloud cover. And many of our contact lens wearers say they need sunglasses a lot of the time.

But not all sunglasses block 100% of UV rays. Particularly cheap pairs of sunglasses as they don’t give protection from harmful radiation from the sun. That’s why you should always check that the sunglasses you are buying have a UV rating of at least 400; which then blocks up to 100% of the sun’s radiation.

At Focus Medical Eye Centre, all of our prescription sunglasses will protect your eyes from 100% of the UV rays on sunny days. We are stockists of Maui Jim sunglasses, which have the Seal of Recommendation from The Skin Cancer Foundation; a well-known symbol of safe and effective sun protection. We also sell Ray-Bans and Cocoa Mint sunglasses which are also of the highest quality.
