Sunglasses can be a fun accessory, which is why we offer a variety of designer sunglasses for you to choose from. It is important to keep in mind that more than just fashion, sunwear is an all-year-round item. The dangers the sun can impact the eyes and the skin around them not only in summer months, but winter months as well. Some conditions, like sunlight reflecting off the snow, can cause a higher degree of ultraviolet radiation, causing certain eye conditions.
Just like we protect our skin with sunscreen, it is also important to protect our eyes from dangerous effects of ultraviolet rays. The ultraviolet rays can damage the tissue of the eye surface, as well as the cornea and lens. Ultraviolet radiation can burn the front surface of the eye, similar to a sunburn on the skin.
To provide protection for your eyes sunglasses should:
- Block out 99% to 100% of both UVA and UVB radiation
- Screen out 75% to 90% of visible light
- Be perfectly matched in color and free of any distortion or imperfections
