The air is fresh, the roads are dirty and the sun is out! Yay spring is in the air! Spring often brings about change and at eye-bar we have some great changes to share. We are welcoming Christianne Paquet and Megan Bartkus to our team of licensed opticians. These ladies live and breathe service and have a passion for eyewear fashion which they would love to share with you next time you are in.

You may have noticed the sun beaming in your eyes again as you commute, which is great because it's no longer dark as you drive to and from work! But, you may want to make sure your eyes and the skin around your eyes are well protected from harmful UV rays. Statistics show that polarized sun lenses decrease motor vehicle collision rates. And, it's a good reminder that UV block for your prescription sunglasses decreases your chances for macular degeneration, cataracts and wrinkles of the tender skin around your eyes. Summer priced already, get your prescription sunglasses soon and get a jump on your summer sun protection.

Another great bit of news we wanted to pass on to you in case you haven't tuned into our facebook or twitter pages yet, Oakley sun lenses are available in a much broader range of prescriptions than they used to be. If you previously were unable to buy prescription Oakley sunglasses because your prescription is strong or unusual, when next you are in our neighborhood, come in to eye-bar and ask about the Oakley OTD Edge digital lenses, available in both single vision and progressive lens options. We may be able to accommodate your prescription now due to the expanded parameters Oakley is newly offering. 

Thank you for being our friends and supporting independent local business in Sherwood Park by being customers and patients of eye-bar.  We hope spring brings you fresh new perspective.

Keeping you in our minds' eye, the team at eye-bar.
