Sunglasses are more than just a convenience. Sure, they make us look and feel cool while blocking the sun from our eyes. Not many people are aware of the fact that sunglasses actually protect our eyes just as much as they shade them to provide us with maximum comfort. Here at Today’s Vision, our team of Kingwood optometrists and opticians are here to tell you about the benefits of wearing sunglasses and can help prescribe the perfect pair for you.
The sun doesn’t just make it temporarily difficult for your eyes to see when it happens to be particularly bright outside. Harmful UV rays can damage the eye, no matter what time of year it is. The sun’s rays are just as powerful and harmful to your eyes in winter time as they are in the summer months. Even if the heat from the sun is not as strong, the strength of the sun’s UV rays are strong all year round. UV light can damage multiple aspects of the eye. This damage can cause serious conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, skin cancer of the eyelids and pingueculae. Wearing sunglasses is like wearing sunscreen on your eyes. Prolonged exposure can severely damage your eyes just as much as it can damage your skin. Wearing a pair of sunglasses that are 100% UVA and UVB from our selection here at Today’s Vision can mean a world of difference. You will not only see more easily and comfortably, but you will be ensuring that you do so for years and years to come. Visit our Kingwood optometrist to receive optimal eye care and advice to make sure that your vision and health are in peak condition, and stay that way.
