Winter Eye Care Advice… Don’t Forget your Sunglasses

You read it correctly. Sunglasses are not just a vital accessory in the sunny season. While many people are aware of the dangers the sun poses to our eyes during the summertime, how many recognize that we need to take precautions in the wintertime as well?

Actually, the UV rays that beat down on you in the warm season remain strong in the winter. And they could be a threat to your eyes' safety, particularly when reflected off a bright snow-covered ground. Those of you who love get-aways that include outdoor winter sports should be extra careful because you'll spend a long time in the bright reflected sunlight which can be harmful to the eye. It's crucial to shield your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays.

So what's the optimal way to guard your eyes in the cold season? Optometrists recommend wearing sunglasses with strong UV protection, so be sure to purchase a quality pair of sunglasses because you'll wear it the entire year. Purchase a pair that you find comfortable and totally protects your eyes.

Our professionals can help you to ensure you're selecting sunglasses that will suit your needs. In addition, there are many different lenses available and we are here to help you select the combination that is suitable for your lifestyle. Don't forget about your eyes on the ski slopes either. The right pair of ski goggles with polycarbonate lenses can help protect your eyes from renegade branches, reckless ski pole tips and other slope hazards.

This winter take out those sunglasses... you will see the difference.
