Sunglasses – More Than Just a Fashion Statement
Are you properly protecting your eyes with sunglasses from the harmful UV rays the sun and summertime activities bring? Sunglasses do more than make a fashionable statement, they provide protection from UV rays, eyestrain, and can also enhance outdoor activity performance.
Whether they are designer, prescription, polarized or from your local drug store, there are sunglasses for all occasions. But are they really doing their job?
If you’re going to be lounging in your hot tub during the day, keep in mind that UV rays reflect off of water, leading to an increase in exposure. The best ways to protect your eyes is by choosing sunglasses that are polarized and offer 100% UV protection. The polarized lenses reduce the glare of the reflection, while also protecting your eyes from solar damage.
It is important to remember that not all sunglasses offer both forms of protection. If you find a pair that does, try your best not to lose them!
