The Importance of Protecting Your Eyes from the Sun
When it comes to a great pair of sunglasses, quality matters. You want durable frames, lenses that can block ultraviolet (UV) rays from entering your eyes, and depending on your lifestyle, scratch-resistant lenses that allow you to see well and enjoy the great outdoors in style.
Broad-spectrum protection from UV-A and UV-B rays are especially important for sunglasses. This is because UV radiation can penetrate deep into your eyes, where it can damage the cells and tissues. Over time, the cumulative effects of this exposure can impair your vision and increase your risk of cataracts, macular degeneration, and certain other vision problems.
Did you know that your eyes can also get "sunburned"? This is a condition known as photokeratitis, and is common during activities involving snow, sand, or water. This is because UV rays and light can bounce off these reflective surfaces and glint right into your eyes, leading to extra UV radiation extra exposure.
How to Choose the Right Sunglasses
At our optometry clinics, we'll help you and your loved ones find the right pair of broad-spectrum UV blocking sunglasses. This starts with assessing your eyesight and providing or updating the right vision correction prescription. We encourage you to spend some time in our optical shop, trying on different pairs to see which ones you feel the most confident in and which brands support your personal style the best.
Then, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and wait for us to get your new pair of prescription sunglasses to you. By investing a little more time in choosing your sunglasses, you'll be able to keep your eyes safe while out and about in your community and enjoying the outdoors with your family without having to compromise on your vision or budget.
