If you see someone wearing sunglasses in winter, don’t be too quick to judge.

It’s often said that the eyes are the window to the soul. After all, as well as enabling us to see, these organs play a crucial role in expression and non-verbal communication.

Extended wear lenses are lenses that have been approved for you to wear for an extended period of time without removing them.

They will usually have you trial the lenses under their supervision and monitor how your eyes handle wearing the lenses.
