Winter Eye Care Tips… It’s Time for Sunglasses

Yep, that's correct. Sunglasses are not only an essential accessory in the summer. While many of us are informed of the dangers the sun presents to our eyes during the summer, we don't all realize that it is essential to take extra care in the winter as well.

Actually, those UV rays that shine down on you in the summer months remain strong in the winter. And they still threaten your eyes' safety, especially when bounced off a bright snow-covered ground. Those of you who enjoy vacations that involve skiing and snowboarding should be especially careful because you'll spend a long time in the bright reflected sunlight which is potentially harmful to the eye. It's crucial to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.

So what measures should you take to protect your eyes in the winter? Optometrists suggest using sunglasses that block UV rays, so ensure that you invest in a durable pair of sunglasses that is suitable for the entire year. Select a pair that is comfortable and completely protects your eyes.

Our professionals can assist you to ensure you're getting sunglasses that provide you with the best protection. In addition, there are a variety of different lenses available and we can help you select the combination that suits your lifestyle. Don't forget about your eyes on the ski slopes either. The right set of ski goggles preferably having polycarbonate lenses is one way to guard your eyes from renegade branches, flying ski poles and other slope dangers.

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