While much of life depends on the life-giving rays of the sun, an over exposure is not to be trifled with. What are these harmful effects? How do we protect the sparkle in our eyes? What must we look out for in a pair of sunglasses? There is an overwhelming amount of information scattered across the internet. Fret not, here we distill the salient points in bite sizes to help make it crystal clear for you.
The ABCs of harmful rays
Ultraviolet (UV) light is divided into 3 main types: UVA (most damaging), UVB (sunburn, snow-blindness) and UVC (filtered by the ozone layer)
We call their effects the ABCs of ultraviolet light
- A: Accelerating age-related macular degeneration in your twilight years
- B: Build-up of lens protein (cataracts) that cloud your vision
- C: Cancers of the eyelids and skin. Enough said.
Safeguarding the windows to your soul
YOLO! No one wants to miss out on fun in the sun so how do we safeguard our eyes as we check off that summer bucket list? The simple answer: Sunglasses! With that said, we ought to be more selective.
Demand UV400 lenses which block all UVA and UVB rays to optimally protect your eyes. If they come WITH polarisation, that takes the cake. Polarisation not only reduces glare symptoms, it also increases contrast, clarity and comfort.
A discerning individual like you will want it all: style, comfort and safety. And why not?
