    • Introduction
      • Sunglasses play a large part in our modern fashion culture; many a movie star has graced the red carpet looking suave in a pair of shades.
      • But beyond being the ultimate fashion accessory, sunglasses also play a critical role in our health and safety.
      • Sunglasses are just as vital as sunscreen when spending prolonged periods of time outside.
    • Ultraviolet Protection
      • Most people are aware of the impact that ultraviolet rays have on the skin, but few are aware of the damage they can have on the eyes.
      • Radiation from ultraviolet rays can speed up the development of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is a disease that destroys the sharpness of vision.
      • It is a painless disease, so most people are unaware of the damage they are doing. AMD is the leading cause of loss of vision in people 60 years of age or older.
      • Wearing sunglasses protects you from these harmful ultraviolet rays.
      • Be sure to check that the sunglasses you are buying offer satisfactory UV protection.
      • A quality pair will give you 100% protection from UV radiation.
      • Many people are using polycarbonate lenses because they are a natural filter to UV and need no additional coating.
    • Glare Reduction
      • The reflection of light puts great strain on our eyesight.
      • Surfaces like snow and water can be extremely bright and as a result, extremely dangerous.
      • Bright sunlight has been the cause of countless accidents when driving or when playing sports.
      • These accidents could have been averted if the individual had been wearing sunglasses.
      • Polarized lenses are particularly effective at blocking out the harsh glare of the sun.
      • These sunglasses have been popular for a longtime with the boating and fishing communities, reducing the reflective glare from the water.
      • In fact all outdoor enthusiasts can benefit from wearing them.
      • Post-cataract patients and light-sensitive people wear polarized sunglasses as well, to soften the bright light indoors.
    • Headaches and Eyestrain
      • The pupil of the eye controls how much light reaches the retina.
      • In dark conditions, the pupil will increase in size to let more light in, and in bright conditions it will constrict to block out the excess light.
      • Continual exposure to bright light causes squinting because the pupil cannot constrict far enough to reduce the amount of light.
      • This causes muscle fatigue and as a result headaches and eyestrain.
      • By simply wearing sunglasses, the pupils can relax and squinting will be reduced, avoiding discomfort.
    • Eye Safety
      • Dust and debris caught in the eye can lead to corneal abrasion.
      • Wind can cause contact lenses to dry out and tears to evaporate, making the eyes dry and uncomfortable. All of these problems can be avoided by wearing sunglasses.
      • Polycarbonate lenses are seen as the most durable and safest lenses to wear.
      • They are less likely to break or fracture and are much safer than weak plastic lenses.
      • If you are in a situation where you are exposed to windblown particles, wraparound polycarbonate sunglasses are recommended.
    • Bottom Line
      • As you can see, sunglasses are both fashionable and practical.
      • Wearing a pair can increase your comfort, your style and most of all, your safety.
