Mountain View Optometry is now one of the few places in Calgary and area to offer Switch Eyewear, the world’s first eyewear with a Magnetic Interchange Lens System™.
We always recommend UV protection for our patients who are active outdoors.
We also found that those of you who participate in a variety of different activities under different lighting conditions were frustrated by having only one pair of sunglasses – “One Lens is not enough!”. Now we have a solution. Each pair of Switch Eyewear comes with 3 different lenses, custom tailored to your preferred activities. The lenses pop in and out of the frame with a strong magnet that will NOT come loose as tested by Dr. Wilk himself during a recent Mountain bike crash! We may even be able to put in your eyeglass prescription!
See Lens Overview at Switch Eyewear website. The interchangeable lenses are shatterproof, water repellent, scratch and smudge resistant with options to choose from: Glare Management (polarized true color grey and contrast amber), Sun Management (true color grey, contrast amber), Low Light Management (low light rose amber), Speciality (golf, tennis, driver, pilot, skiing, hiking, mountain biking, running, motion sports), Sun Reader (no squinting), and Prescription Sunglass.
Now that it’s summer, protect your eyes from the sun, see and perform better at all your favorite activities. Come in and talk to one of our friendly eyewear experts about the new Switch Eyewear!
