Sun and UV400 Protection
A good pair of sunglasses is one of the most important accessories anyone should use on a daily basis. No matter your plans - whether you are driving to work, taking a stroll in the neighbourhood, plan to hit the slopes, the golf course or the beach – you need great shades to help you cope with the bright light conditions while looking your best.
When Canada's first astronaut, Mark Garneau, was on his first Space Shuttle Columbia mission, he needed sunglasses to protect him from the ultraviolet radiation in space. Gordon Wood Optical was chosen as the supplier of the eyewear that he used on the mission. Subsequently, we supplied Canada's Atmospheric Environment Agency with another 20 pairs for astronauts in training.
