Winter Eye Care Advice… It’s Time for Sunglasses

Yep, that's correct. Sunglasses are not only an important accessory in the sunny season. While most people are informed of the dangers the sun poses to our eyes in the summer, we don't all realize that we need to take extra care in the wintertime as well.

In reality, the UV rays that beat down on you in the summer still exist in the winter. And they pose a problem to your eyes, particularly when reflected off a bright snow-covered ground. Those of you who love get-aways that involve outdoor winter sports should be especially careful if you plan to spend a long time in the intense reflected sunlight which is potentially harmful to the eye. It's crucial to protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays.

So what's the optimal way to guard your eyes in the winter? Optometrists suggest wearing sunglasses that block UV rays, so be sure to invest in a great pair of sunglasses that is suitable for all year round. Purchase a pair that you find comfortable and completely shields your eyes.

We can assist you to ensure you're getting sunglasses that will suit your needs. Additionally, there are a variety of different lenses available and we are here to help you choose the combination that fits your lifestyle. Don't neglect your eyes on the slopes either. A good set of ski goggles having polycarbonate lenses can help protect your eyes from swinging branches, reckless ski poles and other slope dangers.

This winter make sure you sport your shades... your eyes will feel the difference.
