Exposure to sunlight can increase the risk of eye damage. Several research studies link the exposure to UV radiation to cataracts and macular degeneration, which can lead to vision impairment. That is why most experts recommend using sunglasses as a way to reduce your eyes’ exposure to harmful UV radiation. But do you know how to buy the right kind? Here are a few tips to help you choose the right sunglasses for your eye health.
Choosing the right sunglasses for Eye Health:
Protection. Choose a pair of sunglasses with a label that says the product blocks 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays. (You can also look for the term “UV 400” which means the same thing).
Lens Colour is irrelevant. Dark lenses or a mirrored coating do not affect how much UV light the sunglasses will block.
Go for the overall quality feel, not the price. If the sunglasses appear to be flimsy, they probably are. Even if they have a 3 digit tag and a brand logo attached. The most effective sunglasses aren’t necessarily more expensive. Try several pairs and see how they feel.
Avoid tiny sunglasses. Some of the sun’s rays can reach your eyes even if you wear sunglasses. That is why you should avoid tiny sunglasses.
