Polarized sunglass with UV protection is extremely important to maintain good eye
health. When you use these types of sunglasses you give yourself the ultimate protection. Here are some interesting facts about sunglasses:
1. The sun's rays are the strongest between 10 am and 2 pm so be sure to
wear proper sunglasses especially during those hours.
2. Too much exposure to harmful UV rays can cause “photokeratitis”
which is sunburn on your eyes. The symptoms are temporary eye
redness, discomfort, light sensitivity and tearfulness.
3. Remember to purchase sunglasses at a reputable place. The darkness
of lenses does not determine how much protection you get. Look for
stickers with indication of UV protection and Polarization.
4. Don’t be fooled by overcast, you may not see the sun in the shade but
the UV rays see you. Wear your sunglasses to protect yourself from
harmful UV rays at all times when outdoors.
5. Polarized lenses have a special filter applied to the lenses which cuts
out the glare you may see off any reflective surface such as water,
pavement and snow.
6. Remember UV protection is different than polarized lenses. UV
protection is a must, as it does not let harmful UV rays enter your eye
and cause macular degeneration and even cataracts.
7. Brought to you by The Vision Council, National Sunglasses Day is a
held annually on June 27 celebrating the importance of wearing shades
to protect the eyes from the sun's harsh ultraviolet (UV) rays.
