Why Are Sunglasses Important?

Eye health is a fundamental part of your general health, and it's important to make sure your eyes are in great shape. One way of doing this is protecting them from the sun to maintain your vision. Here are some things to remember when it comes to sunglasses.

UV Rays

UV rays are dangerous year-round, but especially in the summer. These rays from the sun can cause a lot of damage to your eyes. They can cause cataracts, with make the lens in your eyes cloudy and obstruct your vision. They can also lead to macular degeneration, which occurs when the retina deteriorates. In some cases, UV rays can also cause a temporary sunburn on your cornea.

Blocking UV Rays

It is important to choose a pair of sunglasses that will shield your eyes from UV rays. One way to check is to look for sunglasses that say “UV 400”, which means they will block very small UV rays. You want to avoid buying cheaply made sunglasses, because they likely won’t protect your eyes.

Specialized Sunglasses

We can provide you with any sunglasses you need. If you have a prescription, we offer wraparound sunglasses that fit on top of your glasses. We can also order you a pair of prescription sunglasses.
