Sunglasses are very important to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. Although sunglasses are not just a fashion accessory, they should protect your eyes to prevent common eye conditions such as dry eye syndrome and cataracts.

Sunglasses are not just for adults, children are also advised to wear sunglasses as they tend to be outdoors in direct sunlight as much or more than adults. As summer approaches, more outdoor activity means not only protecting your skin from harmful UV rays, but also protecting your eyes.

Sunglasses are available in a wide variety of styles and sizes. And virtually any frame can be transformed into sunglasses by adding prescription or non-prescription sun lenses.

The lenses you choose for your sunglasses should have 100% UV protection. Transition lenses (the lens that transforms into sunglasses when you go out) automatically include

UV protection. Polarized lenses are an excellent choice for improving clarity of vision, while providing maximum UV protection.

Treatment for dry eye syndrome can be difficult to control if it is related to overexposure to sunlight. And, the only cataract treatment is surgery once the cataract has matured to some degree.

So, the most important reason to wear sunglasses is to avoid having to deal with any of these medical conditions. Visit our eyeglasses shop.
