We use sun cream to protect our skin from the sun and harmful UV rays, but we will forget the sunglasses or wear a pair that isn’t protecting our eyes properly. These same rays can seriously damage eyes that aren’t protected increasing the risk of eye disease.
But an eye specialist with 10 years of experience recommends that you wear sunglasses when you travel in summer. He led his team in a test the other day. In the noon sun, he used a professional illuminance meter to test and found that the illuminance meter was 60,000 lux at this time, and under the indoor high-wattage LED lighting, it was only 200 lux. This will make our eyes feel uncomfortable, and we need to wear sunglasses at this time.
We want to remind our customers that sunglasses are much more than just a fashion accessory, but an essential piece of safety equipment that everyone should wear when going out.
Long-term exposure and without wearing proper eye protection can easily increase the risk of eye disease, such as cataracts, macular degeneration, corneal issues and growths on the eye and even rare forms of eye cancer.
Short-term exposure can often be just as damaging too, while sun simply reflecting off water is able to cause sunburn on the cornea, this is the clear dome that covers the front of your eye, and can be very painful with symptoms such as blurry vision and redness, increased sensitivity to bright light and uncomfortable pain.
Fear not though as you can easily help prevent all of these issues and any permanent damage from these harmful UV rays by simply wearing sunglasses that will help block both UVA and UVB radiation.
We put up with 3 simple tips to protect your eyes while enjoying the sunshine:
1.Wear your hat. A hat is helpful to avoid harm from UV protection.
2.Don’t forget the kids. While it’s easy to remember to put cream on the kids, don’t forget the sunglasses as Research shows that around 80 percent of our exposure to UVR rays throughout our lifetime will occur before the age of 18.

3.Try polarised lenses. These can help reduce glare that bounces off water or other shiny surfaces and are great for driving.
