Although sunglasses are often thought of as a summer accessory, in terms of eye care, it is just as important that you wear them during the winter months too. Not only are the sun’s UV rays just as harmful in the winter, as in the summer, but your eyes also have to contend with glare, caused by light reflecting off the snow. Today we will talk you through our top three reasons to wear designer sunglasses this winter.
#1 Prevent glare from catching you off-guard Over the last few winters we have experienced a fair amount of snow. Although it looks harmless, when the sun bounces off its surface, it can actually seriously impair your vision. Reflective glare is particularly dangerous to drivers, as it can distract them and cause accidents. If you are looking for a pair of designer sunglasses that can effectively reduce glare during the winter, then we highly recommend Oakley sunglasses. They also have a range of models suitable for skiing and snowboarding.
#2 Protect your eyes from dust and debris During the winter months, the weather is often very windy. This means that there is usually a lot of dust and debris floating around in the air that can irritate the eyes. The wind itself can also cause eyes to become dry, itchy and uncomfortable. This can be easily prevented by wearing a tight fitting pair of wraparound sunglasses. We have many different styles for you to choose from here on our website.
#3 Protect your eyes from harmful UV rays If you regularly expose your eyes to ultraviolet radiation you could end up developing eye conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration. It is important to remember that the sun’s UV rays are just as harmful in the winter as they are in the summer. When choosing a pair of designer sunglasses to wear this winter, opt for a style that offers 100% protection from UVA and UVB rays.
