Winter Eye Care Tips… It’s Time for Sunglasses

Yep, that's correct. Sunglasses are not just an essential accessory in the sunny season. While most people are aware of the damage the sun poses to our eyes during the summer, we don't all realize that it is essential to take extra care in the winter months as well.

In truth, those ultraviolet rays that beat down on you in the summer months still exist in the winter. And they could be a threat to your eyes, especially when bounced off a bright snow-covered ground. Those of you who enjoy get-aways that involve snow-based activities should be especially cautious if you plan to spend an extended amount of time in the intense reflected sunlight which can be harmful to the eye. It's very important to guard your eyes from harmful UV rays.

So what's the best way to guard your eyes in the winter months? Optometrists recommend using sunglasses with strong UV protection, so ensure that you purchase a durable pair of sunglasses that is suitable for all year round. Select a pair that is fitting and totally shields your eyes.

Our professionals can assist you to ensure you're getting sunglasses that will suit your needs. In addition, there are many different lenses available and we are here to help you select the combination that is suitable for your lifestyle. Don't forget about your eyes on the slopes either. The right pair of ski goggles having polycarbonate lenses can help defend your eyes from renegade branches, reckless ski pole tips and other slope dangers.

This winter make sure you sport your shades… your eyes will feel the difference.
