National Sun Safety week begins this Sunday so are you prepared for this seasons summer UV Rays? It's that time of year that we're all out and about enjoying the warmth of the sun but it can also be damaging to our eyes if we're not prepared with good quality sunglasses with high rated UV protective lenses.
Statistics show that each year more skin cancers are diagnosed than lung cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer combined, that's over 2 Million per year, a whopping big number for something that is preventable.
Did you know 1 in 5 people will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime? That's why it's so important to set the example for our children by taking all the safety precautions needed to have safe fun in the sun;
1. Wear at least 30+ SPF rated sunscreen, even on cloudy days the UV rays can still penetrate your skin
2. Wear a hat, there are so many great, fashionable options to suit everyone, there are no excuses!
3. Wear the best quality sunglasses you can buy for yourself and your family, with highly rated UV lenses for the best protection, you also want to avoid crows feet at the edge of your eyes.
According to doctors, while skin cancer is the most prolific form of cancer, it is also the most preventable and the most curable when diagnosed at an early stage. Starting young is the key to prevention because the sun burns young people get today can lead to skin cancer and other forms of skin damage tomorrow.

Oakley Hijinx sunglasses, one of Oakley's most popular and comfortable frames. Oakley is well known and the master of engineering when it comes to sunglasses and their frames stand up to the test of time, lasting for years. We should know given that we fit aftermarket replacement lenses in frames that are 20 years old like the original Frogskins.
Although not one of Oakley most outrageous designs, it's still large and masucline enough to give great coverage, and still give a nice curvature to fit a medium to large face shape. They're both fashionable and sporty and super light for such a large frame. It shows of the big 'O' logo really well and comes in a huge range of styles and lens colors.
If you're a fan of the Oakley Hijinx but they are in need of some TLC then get yourself some aftermarket replacement lenses for them. Check out our range of colors or our new Ultimate Polarized range.
