Winter Eye Care Tips… It’s Time for Sunglasses

Yep, that's correct. Sunglasses aren't just a vital accessory in the summer. While most of us are informed of the dangers the sun presents to our eyes in the summer, how many recognize that it is essential to take precautions during the winter months as well?

In truth, those ultraviolet rays that shine down on you during the summer months are still around in the winter. And they pose a problem to your eyes, especially when reflected off a bright snow. Those of you who love vacations that include skiing and snowboarding should be especially cautious because you'll spend an extended amount of time in the bright reflected sunlight which can be damaging to the eye. It's crucial to guard your eyes from harmful UV rays.

So what steps should you take to safeguard your eyes in the winter months? Eye doctors suggest using sunglasses with strong UV protection, so ensure that you purchase a great pair of sunglasses that is suitable for all year round. Purchase a pair that you find fitting and completely protects your eyes.

You will immediately discover that there is a plethora of choices when it comes to selecting the best pair of sunglasses. In addition to UV protection, style, color and design, there are many lens options that have been developed to create specialized sunglasses. If you enjoy outdoor sports, you might want to opt for polarized lenses which reduce reflected glare. Gradient lenses are tinted from top down to guard your eyes from sun coming from above which can be useful when on the road. Consult with one of our opticians to inquire about the various sunglass options on the market and which optimally fit your needs.

This winter get out those sunglasses... your eyes will feel the difference.
