Why should you wear sunglasses?
It’s common for people to worry about ultraviolet radiation, thinking about the problems that this can cause in the skin. But this body is not the only thing we need to worry about. Unprotected sun exposure can also be harmful to the eyes, with serious consequences. The main problem of this exposure lies mainly in ultraviolet rays, which can cause cumulative damage to the ocular area. This means that the more a person is exposed to the sun throughout his or her life, the more likely he is to develop various degenerative diseases.
DRIVING GLARE – UV Tinted Sunglasses
100% UV Sunglasses protect from the reflected sunlight. This reduces squinting (and the wrinkles it causes) and can prevent certain migraines and headaches brought on by bright light. But the real benefit comes when you’re driving: glare from a road can temporarily blind drivers. UV tinted sunglasses allow you to avoid this potential hazard. And you don’t have to choose dark lenses: pale amber or other light colors work just as well to prevent them, as long as they are 100% UV tinted.
BLOW DRYING YOUR EYES
The Wind and air conditioning can dry out your eyes, causing discomfort, redness, itchiness, and soreness. In cars, It often feels best when it’s blowing near your face – and that means into your eyes. Wearing sunglasses – even when it’s not sunny – cuts down on the effects of air blowing directly into your eyes.
Don’t forget cataracts – one of those ailments you don’t really think about until it’s too late. Long term excessive exposure to UV rays can cause cataracts in your eyes. Symptoms include blurred vision, light sensitivity, double vision, needing brighter light to read, and fading of colors.
