Top 10 Sunglasses For UV Protection
Top 10 Sunglasses For UV Protection
Sunglasses might be a small accessory, but they have a large impact. A great pair of sunglasses can change your face, your style, and even boost your mood a bit.
Aside from their status as a style accessory, sunglasses are one of the most important things you can use to protect your eyes against harmful UV.
The primary reason we need a pair of sunglasses is due to the existence of ultraviolet radiation from the sun itself, not just the light from the sun. What this means is that your eyes are picking up UV rays even on cloudy days.
What Are the Risks of Eye Exposure to UV Light?
There are three types of ultraviolet radiation: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. You probably don't hear much about UV-C because the earth's ozone layer absorbs it, making its threat minimal to nonexistent. However, both UV-A and UV-B cause short and long-term damage to your eyes and your vision.
The short-term damage can be similar to sunburn but in your eyes, which may become red and puffy or even feel gritty like you have sand in them. If you’re very sensitive to light, you may suffer from excessive tearing.
If your eyes are exposed to long-term solar radiation, you stand a greater risk of developing cataracts or macular degeneration later in life.
Remember: Darker Does Not Mean More Protection!
The color of the lens has nothing to do with how much UV protection lenses provide. Early versions of sunglasses were dark but blocked no UV rays.
