Benefits of Wearing Sunglasses

Sunglasses do a lot for our eye health, and they are also an excellent fashion accessory:

Get Protection from UV Radiation

Wearing sunglasses is the best and easiest way to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. Protecting your eyes is important because too much exposure to UV rays for extended periods can increase your risk of developing cataracts, macular degeneration, and photokeratitis (sunburn of the eye). 

By wearing sunglasses blocking UVA and UVB Rays, you can reduce UV exposure and the chance of developing eye diseases. Unfortunately, UV ray damage accumulates over time. This highlights the importance of engaging in UV protection as soon as possible. Nationwide Vision has all the information and resources you need for the best UV ray protection. Buying a pair of sunglasses with us will ensure your eyes get the proper protection they demand.

Reduce Eye Strain

Eye strain can be very uncomfortable. It can cause severe headaches, blurry vision, and fatigue. Eye strain commonly starts with extended exposure to bright sunlight. Our pupils work hard to limit how much sun gets into our eyes, so the more we go back and forth between bright and less sun, the more our eye muscles get stressed. You can help prevent your pupils and eyes from being overworked and developing eye strain symptoms by wearing effective sunglasses.

Skin Cancer Prevention

One of the best ways to prevent skin cancer is to use sunscreen. And we always recommend sunscreen on your face and the sensitive area around your eyes. Not correctly protecting this area can cause skin cancer and sunburn. By wearing properly fitting sunglasses, you can better your protection from the sun. They should completely cover your eyes and the surrounding areas.

Debris Protection

Getting debris in your eyes, such as dirt, rocks, dust, and even bugs, can cause severe discomfort and irritation. Wearing sunglasses is the best way to keep all that out of your eyes. They are also the best solution for keeping the wind from hitting your eyes. Getting hit by wind can lead to eye irritation, watery eyes, and red eyes. No matter the season, you can get obscured vision from debris and wind. It’s essential to wear sunglasses year-round!

Block Out Glare

Glare can both be a nuisance and a severe problem. It can make our eyes uncomfortable and cause temporary blindness. We typically get glare from windows, mirrors, screens, and pavement. It can affect us while watching TV, driving, outside, or simply sitting and relaxing. It’s crucial to avoid glare when driving. Since glare can cause temporary blindness, it can be dangerous to drive without sunglasses.

Sunglasses with polarized lenses do the best job of canceling out glare. If you do a lot of driving, we strongly recommend polarized sunglasses.

Show Off with Sunglasses

Show off your style and personality with a great pair of shades. So not only can you keep your eyes safe, but you can make a fashion statement too. With all the lens colors, frames, and designs, you’ll find a pair that fits your style and wardrobe. No matter what kind of style you’re looking for, you will find a pair of sunglasses that completely meets your needs.
