UV and sunglasses: How to protect your eyes
You probably know that too much exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause sunburn and skin cancer. But did you know UV also can harm your eyes? Extended exposure to the sun’s UV rays has been linked to significant eye conditions such as: cataracts, macular degeneration, pinguecula, pterygium and photokeratitis. To protect your eyes from UV radiation, you should wear sunglasses that block 100 percent of UV rays whenever you are outdoors- even on cloudy days because the sun’s damaging UV rays can penetrate cloud cover. Sunglass frames with a wraparound style provide the best protection because they limit how much sunlight reaches your eyes from all sides. We offer many styles for you to choose from to provide you with the best protection from brands you can trust such as Ray Ban.
