Sunglasses are a trademark of the summer, but they also have their place during the other seasons too! While they are a great way to express yourself through your accessories, having a proper pair of sunglasses that protect you from UV light is more important than you think. That’s why at Hakim Optical we carry polarized glasses that look great and protect your eyes from the sun.
Your Eyes Are At Risk During Any Season!
During the spring and summer we spend much more time outside than we do during other seasons, but that doesn’t mean you don’t go outdoors in the fall and winter too! Different seasonal activities and outdoor fun can expose us to a very powerful sun for potentially hours at a time. The next time you’re enjoying an afternoon at the park, if you don’t have a quality pair of polarized glasses to protect you from the sun, you are risking sun-related damage to your eyes including:
- Corneal Sunburn
- Ageing in the skin around your eyes
- Macular Degeneration
The best way to avoid these potential side effects of exposing your eyes to the sun is to wear a quality pair of polarized sunglasses.
You may be wondering what makes polarized sunglasses so special when you’re looking for a good method to protect your eyes from the sun. Well, there are several benefits to choosing polarized sunglasses as your go-to accessory year-round.
Quality polarized glasses have 100% effective UV protection, meaning harmful UV rays cannot shine through the lenses and cause any of the eye damage as listed above. With polarized lenses, you can safely spend time outdoors this year without risking hurting your eyes. Polarized glasses also reduce glare, making it easier for the wearer to see on sunny days, making activities like driving or riding a bike safer, and effectively preventing eye strain.
If you’re hoping to have the safest and happiest year possible, consider making your go-to accessory a pair of quality polarized lenses!
