The Importance of UV Protection
From an early age, almost everyone is taught that spending too much time in the sun can be bad for your eyes. While that’s somewhat true, that single broad statement has become a kind of scientific boogie man. Everyone’s wary about the sun, but fewer people know about the importance of UV protection and how it can help you negate its effects.
Did you know? Prolonged exposure to the sun without UV protection can cause rapid macular degeneration (blurring of the eyesight.). Believe it or not, this phenomenon can occur at any time of the year, since UV rays reflect extremely well off of cloudy skies, snow, and even water. Polarized sunglasses can help your eyes filter out these dangerous rays and maintain your vision’s health.
The Benefits of Polarization
The benefits of polarization go far beyond simple UV protection. Sunglasses with this special coating have unique features that make them a great choice for active people, drivers, and more. Here’s just a couple special examples: Reduced glare: Polarized sunglasses take in vertical light, but filter out horizontal light. This effectively blocks out the blurry hazes and glares associated with bright reflections during sunny days and overly bright car headlights during night time driving. Improved comfort and reduced eye strain: Polarized sunglasses naturally lessen the amount that you need to squint in bright light conditions, drastically reducing eye strain and improving comfort.
