Why should we wear sunglasses and hats?
We often forget that our eyes need just as much protection as our skin does! Protecting our eyes from UV light can lower the risk of serious eye diseases like:
Cataracts (foggy/blurry vision and light sensitivity)
Growth On or Near the Eye
Sunburned Eyes (pain, redness, sensitivity to light, swelling etc.)
Macular Degeneration (central vision blur, loss of vision, see straight lines appearing as wavy)
Having proper sun protection while you are exposed to sun has positive benefits to your eyes and your health. It is essential to have proper UV protection sunglasses, sunscreen and broad-brimmed hats to maintain your long term vision goals!
We want our patients to keep their eyes healthy for life!
What are the best sunglasses to purchase that will protect our eyes?
Maximum UV protection (100% protection against UVA and UVB rays)
Polarized Sunglasses that help with glare from the UV rays
Comfortable frames that are well-fitting
Taking precaution against the sun is the best way to ensure that our eye health is at its best. Wearing UV protective sunglasses, sunscreen, and hats will ensure that not only are we protected from the UV rays but we can enjoy our outdoor activities while seeing our very best.
