Our sunglasses are more than just a fashion accessory; they're your eyes' defense against the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. Just because it isn't warm out doesn't mean it isn't sunny. In the winter, you can run the risk of UV-damage thanks to the snow's reflectiveness. So when you are bundling up in your cute ski jacket and boots, don't forget a set of sunnies! The snow can reflect up to 85 percent of UV-rays, and can even burn your cornea, causing snow blindness. Sunglasses can also help protect against dry eyes from the wind, blowing debris, snow and ice. They also remove the need to squint, cutting down on eye fatigue that can lead to headaches. Protecting your eyes are a key factor in your overall health and quality of life!
Prolonged exposure to bright sunlight can cause cataracts, macular degeneration and astigmatism. Protecting your eyes can really be as simple as slipping on a pair of shades. The sun's harmful UV rays can also cause the skin to age prematurely, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, leathery skin and brown spots. All our sunglasses protect against UV rays, and several styles are polarized. Polarized lenses provide even better glare protection and are great for outdoor use, especially on water or snow.
