UV Rays and Eye Protection

When you expose your eyes to the sun often, the UV rays from the sunlight can adversely affect your vision. Cataracts often start because of exposure to UV rays and UV rays can make cataracts worse. UV exposure can also lead to macular degeneration and other eye health problems. UV rays can even burn your corneas, leading to sunburns on the eyes. Today's sunglasses offer important UV protection to keep your eyes healthy. Sunglasses often offer 100% blockage of UV rays for eye safety.

Dry Eye and Sunglasses

Having your eyes exposed to the elements can also mean that your eyes dry out too much. There is a tear film that coats the eyes to keep them lubricated. This tear film can evaporate quickly when there is a lot of wind. This can lead to dry eye and the irritation and eye pain that it can bring. Part of your eye care should be to wear your sunglasses year round so that the wind won't reach your eyes. This is especially needed if you are running or biking, but it's always a good idea to protect the eyes.

Preventing Glare

Getting polarized sunglasses can help you to avoid glare when you're outdoors. When sunlight bounces off a smooth surface, you can get a sharp glare in your eye that can make it difficult to see. Polarized sunglasses cut through that glare so your vision is sharper and your eyes won't get as tired. This can especially help when you are driving or going onto the water. Getting prescription, polarized sunglasses from an eye doctor is a great way to make sure that your eyes are always protected.
