Do You Really Need Sunglasses?
Sunglasses can protect your eyes from the sun’s damaging UV rays. Did you know your corneas can get sunburn? People often use sunblock to protect their skin but neglect their eyes. UV rays can damage your eyes at any time of the year, not just during the summer months. Years of long term sun exposure increases your risk of developing cataracts, growths on the front of the eyes, and macular degeneration
What Type of Sunglasses Do I Need?
Sunglasses should block 99-100% of UVA and UVB light, and 75-90% of visible light. Darker glasses are not necessarily better - they can block more visible light, but may not have enough UV protection. Sunglasses designed by reputable brands will indicate their UV protection, so you can make an informed decision.
Lenses and Lens Coatings
Polarized lenses reduce glare as well, provide UV protection, and can also be worn indoors if you are sensitive to light. They are frequently used by those who spend a lot of time outdoors, are exposed to a lot of indoor light, have light sensitivity, or those that have undergone eye surgery.
Photochromatic lenses, or transitions, darken when exposed to light, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor use. Blue blocking lenses block blue light from computers and other electronic devices. They can help reduce eyestrain associated with frequent computer use.
