Did you know that our eyes are 10 times more sensitive to UV radiation than our skin?

UV radiation causes damage to our eyes and is linked to eye conditions including cataracts and macular degeneration. The best protection is quality sunglasses worn all year round – even on cloudy days. Specialeyes Newcastle offers prescription sunglasses, fashion sunglasses, sport sunglasses and children’s sunglasses so that all the family are covered!

Our commitment to quality means that our sunglasses range has been chosen based on the level of protection it offers and with an eye to fashion detailing. There’s something for everyone and every budget – from European-designed Furla sunglasses for women through to the popular Bill Bass polarised range for men and women. Most styles can be fitted with your prescription – and prescription sunglasses can be claimed on your private health fund optical benefits.

We stock an outstanding range of Maui Jim sunglasses – developed in Hawaii to provide the highest level of UV protection, sharp detail and brilliant colours. Maui Jim’s patented PolarisedPlus2 lens technology eliminates glare from water and sand and their premium lenses can be fitted with your prescription. We also stock the fantastic Maui Readers – your Maui Jim sunglasses with a built-in magnification section which makes reading at the beach an absolute joy!

Our Rodenstock range of prescription and fashion sunglasses provide outstanding UV protection through their premium polarised lenses. The Rocco by Rodenstock Sunwear frame + lens packages offer the latest frames complemented by your choice of prescription or non-prescription lenses in a range of lens tints.

We haven’t forgotten the young members of the family. Our Dirty Dog junior sunglasses range is a hit with kids and the wrap-around style provides excellent UV protection for young eyes.
