Winter Eye Care Advice… It’s Time for Sunglasses

Yep, it's true. Sunglasses are not only a vital accessory in the summer. Although most of us are aware of the dangers the sun presents to our eyes in the summer, we don't all recognize that we need to take extra care in the winter months as well.

In truth, the ultraviolet rays that shine down on you during the warm season are still around in the winter. And they could be a threat to your eyes' safety, especially when bounced off a bright snow. Those of you who enjoy get-aways that include outdoor winter sports should be extra cautious because you'll spend an extended amount of time in the intense reflected sunlight which can be damaging to the eye. It's crucial to protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays.

So what's the optimal way to safeguard your eyes in the winter? Eye doctors suggest using sunglasses that block UV rays, so be sure to purchase a durable pair of sunglasses that is suitable for the entire year. Purchase a pair that is comfortable and totally shields your eyes.

Our professionals can help you to make sure you're buying 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 neglect your eyes on the ski slopes either. A good set of ski goggles with polycarbonate lenses can help protect your eyes from swinging branches, reckless ski pole tips and other slope hazards.

This winter take out those sunglasses… your eyes will feel the difference.
