Exposure to UV rays from the sun can cause eye damage such as macular degeneration, cataracts, and photokeratitis. Protecting your eyes from solar radiation is as simple as wearing sunglasses that block 100% of the sun's UV rays. To receive the most UV protection, choose frames that closely fit your head because they limit the amount of sunlight that can reach your eyes.
Do My Children Need Sunglasses?
Children need to protect their eyes from the sun just like adults do. Blue-eyed kids are at greater risk of sun damage than children with dark eyes, so it's especially important to protect them from damaging radiation. To make your kids more likely to wear their sunglasses, go shopping with them so they can pick out the style they like.
Does Lens Color Make a Difference?
Although the lens color of both designer and prescription sunglasses don’t make a difference in terms of their level of UV protection, certain colors are better suited for certain activities. Grey lenses are great for most activities because they don’t change the value of color, while amber lenses enhance vision and reduce glare. Yellow lenses provide clarity in low-light situations, making them a great option for hunters and those who drive often during evening hours. For more info, contact us at Eye Candy Vision
