New Ocean City Beach Patrol Sponsor
Providing each lifeguard with polarized sunglasses for Summer 2022
The Ocean City Beach Patrol is proud to announce a new partner who will be providing Ocean City’s lifeguards with sunglasses to facilitate their work. Until now, each lifeguard has been responsible for providing his or her own sunglasses. This new sponsorship is a crucial step forward in protecting the eye-health of our employees as well as demonstrating appreciation for what they do. We are also hopeful that this generosity translates into assistance with recruiting and retention of high caliber personnel.
Hook Optics, created locally by An Optical Galleria, and recognized as “the hottest new sunglass brand” on the market today, has been named the official sunglasses of OC Beach Patrol! The company is based here on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
The polarization of Hook Optics lenses greatly reduces the glare on the water’s surface, which makes it easier for the guards to see the people in the water. The wrap feature of the HOOK frames not only improves the peripheral vision but also allows very little light from the sides and behind the frame improving the lines of sight. The filters in Hook Optics lenses block out harmful UV rays that will help reduce the risk of cataracts and keep our lifeguards’ eyes safe from prolonged sun exposure. Hook Optics are high quality sunglasses that meet the rigorous standards required for lifeguarding on the ocean while protecting our staff so they may protect you and your loved ones.
Hook Optics sunglasses are available at An Optical Galleria, LLC, (410) 390-3924, Atlantic Tackle, Provisions at Sunset Marina, Malibu’s Surf Shop and on the web at www.hookoptics.com.
