Sunglasses in Hilo

Whether or not you require vision correction, sunglasses can add an element of comfort and enhanced performance to your activities, while helping you look great.

We offer a wide range of sunglasses for residents of Hilo, Keaau, Papaikou, Kurtistown and Waimea.

UV Damage to Your Eyes

Did you know your eyes can get “sunburned”? UV radiation from the sun can harm your eyes and increase chances for various eye diseases as you age. Without sunglasses, especially here in Hawaii, you are at greater rish for Macular Degeneration and Cataracts.
High quality sunglasses from Optical Hilo will reduce the amount of UV rays reaching your eyes and reduce your risk for eye disease or other eye damage.
Additionally, the sunglasses available here in Hilo will also protect the sensitive sk in around your eyes, which may reduce wrinkles.

Wearing Sunglasses in Hilo

Anytime you step outside, you should be wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes. However, there are certain situations where sunglasses are an absolute must! All eye doctors agree that spending time at the beach requires sunglasses due to the strong rays, the glare off of the water and the sun exposure.

Stop by our optical to find the perfect pair of sunglasses.
