Staying safe never looked better
In the long term, overexposure to UV radiation can cause serious damage to your ocular health – but the good news is, the solution is as simple (and stylish) as putting on a pair of sunnies.
When to wear them
All year! If you’re spending time outside, your eyes are taking in UV rays, no matter the season. As you might have already guessed, the sunnier the day, the higher the exposure – and if you’re near water, around snow or looking through the windshield of a car, the reflection from these surfaces doubles the amount of UV light that you’re taking in. Going on a hike? Here’s an extra reminder: the sun rays are stronger as you go up in altitude.
How to pick them
First off, the main thing you need to look for when choosing sunglasses is the simple mention of 100% UVA and UVB protection. Once you know that you’ve got that covered, you might also want to consider a larger style. When it comes to protecting your eyes from the sun, the bigger the shades, the better. Now all that’s left to do is to figure out the type of solar lenses you need: tinted, photochromic, polarized or gradient.
Lucky for you, we just came out with a new collection of sunglasses. Get them in time for the summer and make a habit out of wearing them through the year!
