7 facts about sunglasses

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.
