Sunglasses are more than a fashion statement. They protect your eyes from the sun’s damaging rays that over time can cause cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, and even sunburn of the cornea. Children (who are the least likely to wear sunglasses) are at the highest risk, because their eyes are more sensitive than adults.
When on a boat or on the beach, sun reflecting off of the surface of the water and sand can cause you to squint – creating wrinkles around your eyes. Even in the winter, sun bouncing off of the snow can cause a glare that can make you squint when you are driving, skiing, or sledding.
Luckily at All About Eyes, we have a wide selection of quality sunglasses for men, women, and children, including sunglasses by Maui Jim, Tommy Bahama, Ray Ban and Juicy Couture. Our sunglasses block 99 – 100% of UVA and UVB rays to help protect yours and your family’s eyes from sun damage. We can also turn any pair of frames into prescription sunglasses, so that even if you wear a prescription, you can still stay safe from the sun.
The manufacturers of today’s lenses recognize the need for sun protection, so it’s easy to find adult and children’s glasses with convenient clips or magnets that attach coordinating shades to the frames, for a perfect fit.
