The Benefits of Sunglasses Outnumber the Sun’s Rays

One of the biggest and most obvious benefits of wearing sunglasses is the protection they offer against harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. However, there are actually many benefits of wearing sunglasses, including:

Protection against skin cancer

Did you know that about 10% of skin cancers can be found on your eyelids?

Prevention against cataracts and macular degeneration

Prolonged UV exposure can contribute to cataracts and increase the risks of age-related macular degeneration over one’s lifetime.

Protection against sunburn of the eye (photokeratitis)

This can be extremely painful and lead to blurred vision, light sensitivities and other unpleasantries.

Protection from debris in the great outdoors

If people wear safety goggles in certain professions to protect their eyes from debris, why can’t we do the same whenever we go outside?

Reduced solar glare

This results in less squinting and eye strain, which also helps you prevent aging and the wrinkle lines that form around your eyes over time. Solar glare also causes you to have reduced vision, which can be dangerous in certain conditions – especially when behind the wheel of an automobile.

Reduced chances of experiencing dry eyes

Sunglasses also protect your eyes against wind and dust, which have been known to cause dry eyes.

They aid you during post-surgical recoveries

If you’re having a corrective vision surgery such as LASIK, your doctor might recommend that you wear sunglasses during your recovery period as you adjust to your new vision.

Less headaches and migraines

Many sunglass wearers report fewer headaches and migraines caused by too much exposure to bright sunlight.

Don’t Forget the Polarized Lenses to Reduce Glare

Optometrists Clinic Inc proudly offers a fine selection of polarized lenses that are designed to help reduce the glare off of horizontal surfaces, including rainy or snow-covered surfaces, lakes, ski slopes, and more. Polarized lenses are especially useful for avid skiers, fishermen and drivers who spend a great deal of time on the road.
