Winter Eye Care Advice… Don’t Forget your Sunglasses

Yep, it's true. Sunglasses are not only an important accessory in the summer. Although many people are informed of the damage the sun presents to our eyes during the summertime, how many recognize that we need to take precautions in the wintertime as well?

Actually, those UV rays that shine down on you during the summer are still around in the winter. And they could be a threat to your eyes, particularly when reflected off a bright snow-covered ground. Those of you who enjoy get-aways that include outdoor winter sports should be extra careful if you plan to spend an extended amount of time in the bright reflected sunlight which can be damaging to the eye. It's very important to shield your eyes from harmful UV rays.

So what measures should you take to safeguard your eyes in the winter? Eye doctors suggest using sunglasses with strong UV protection, so be sure to purchase a durable pair of sunglasses that is suitable for the whole year. Select a pair that is comfortable and totally protects your eyes.

We can help you to ensure you're buying sunglasses that provide you with the best protection. Additionally, there are many different lenses available and we can help you select the combination that fits your lifestyle. Don't neglect your eyes on the ski slopes either. A good set of ski goggles preferably with polycarbonate lenses can help defend your eyes from renegade branches, reckless ski poles and other slope hazards.

This winter get out those sunglasses… you will see the difference.
