Independent Opticians in Harborne


Protecting our eyes from the sun is probably more important than protecting our skin. UVA and UVB are factors in causing certain eye diseases and, in particular, cataracts. Also, there is of course the plus side that you get to look absolutely ace in some stylish sunnies.


Most spectacle lenses protect our eyes from most UV rays, however most spectacle frames allow the sun to enter the eyes from the sides, and they don’t help against glare, or the resulting squinting into the sun. There is also some alarming statistics about the amount of road traffic accidents caused by people not being able to see oncoming traffic due to glare.

At Brittain Opticians, we have built a reputation for supplying the best quality sun wear to you, combining the latest technology, like the Maui Jim Polarised Plus 2 lens, the iconic Rayban, to the designer chic of the beautifully crafted handmade Ørgreen frames, to the effortlessly cool MYKITA frames designed and produced in Berlin.

Using a combination of technologies we can now supply correction for a wide range of prescriptions, from distance lenses to specialist skiing varifocals, in a myriad of different colours and depth tint. So your sunglasses have never been in better hands.
