Five good reasons you should wear polarised sunglasses


Five Reasons to Wear Sunglasses

1.) UV Protection. The sun's UV radiation can cause cataracts; benign growths on the eye's surface; and snow blindness, which is a temporary but painful sunburn of the eye's surface. Wide brimmed old fashioned hats and caps can block out 50 percent of UV radiation from the eyes but optometrists say that is not enough protection.

2.) Blue Light Protection. Long term exposure to the blue and violet portion of the solar spectrum has been implicated as one risk factor for macular degeneration.  If you have sun sensitive skin, then your eyes are most likely the same. 

3.) Comfortable vision. Squinting your eyes is not comfortable.

4.) Dark adaptation. Spending just a few hours in bright sunlight can affect your eyes ability to adapt quickly to night time or indoor light levels.  If your driving home after a hard day sun bathing on the beach it can take your eyes longer to adjust.

5.) Skin Cancer.  Believe it or not you can get cancer of the eyelids and skin around the eyes.  If your spending a few hours outside during the daylight you should protect your eyes same way as you would wear a hat or put on some sun screen.

Five Tips for Healthy Eyes

1.) Wear UV protective hairyeyes sunglasses any time your eyes are exposed to UV light, even on cloudy days and during winter months.

2.) Look for quality sunglasses like Hairyeyes sunglasses that offer good protection.  

3.) Check to make sure your lenses are perfectly matched in colour and free of distortions and imperfections.

4.) The best protection is from grey coloured lenses.  All of our Hairyeyes lenses offer UV protection but if you want Grey then choose a grey coloured lense like https://www.hairyeyes.com/products/black-ice 

5.) Don’t forget protection for the youngsters. They should spend more time in the sun than adults and their eyes are usually more strained from screen time.
