The sunglasses are available exclusively at any of Eye Care Associates 17 offices located throughout the Triangle, the Sandhills and in Wilmington.

The special release of the limited edition Carolina Blue Wayfarers comes as part of an agreement with Luxottica, the Italian eyewear manufacturer Ray-Ban. Eye Care Associates requested the line of Wayfarers in support of their status as a Preferred Eye Care Provider for Carolina Athletics. These sunglasses will ensure the eyes of Carolina fans will be protected when they watch and celebrate sporting events outdoors.

Eye Care Associates’ doctors also note the Carolina Blue Wayfarers while unique are not a promotional item but high quality sunglasses, which provide needed protection for the wearers’ eyes. Eyes regularly exposed to too much sun can develop serious and sometimes permanent damage. Eye doctors recommend wearing UV blocking sunglasses in order to avoid age related eye diseases. Sunglasses protect the delicate skin around the eye area from premature signs of aging due to UV rays and sun damage.
