Choosing the Right Sunglasses

Choosing the right sunglasses crucial to eye health

While most are quick to get their hands on the hottest summer trends at the best price, it’s important to consider the serious eye health complications that spending time in the sun can have. Overexposure to UV rays has been linked to a variety of problems, including cataracts, macular degeneration, skin cancer, and degeneration of the cornea. UV damage can cause growths on the white part of the eye, which can worsen dry eye problems, by creating an irregular surface. These UV related conditions might cause blurred vision, irritation, redness, tearing, and temporary vision loss. Never stare at the sun as it can lead to solar retinopathy, which in severe cases causes blindness. UV protection is important for all age groups. The World Health Organization estimates that half of your lifetime exposure happens before the age of 18. So remember, it is important to protect your children’s eyes from UV as well as your own.

Prescription Sunglasses are important, too!

Prescription sunglasses are a great option to protect from UV light for glasses wearers. Even for those individuals who do wear contact lenses, prescription sunglasses are a fantastic solution on days you prefer not to wear your contacts. Prescription sunglasses give you yet another option for comfort, safety, and great vision.
