Winter Eye Care Advice… Don’t Forget your Sunglasses

Yep, that's correct. Sunglasses aren't only a vital accessory in the sunny season. While many people are aware of the damage the sun presents to our eyes in the summer, we don't all realize that it is essential to take precautions in the wintertime as well.

In truth, the ultraviolet rays that shine down on you in the warm season are still around in the winter. And they still threaten your eyes, particularly when bounced off a bright snow. Those of you who love get-aways that include outdoor winter sports should be especially careful if you plan to spend a long time in the bright reflected sunlight which is potentially damaging to the eye. It's crucial to protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays.

So what steps should you take to safeguard your eyes in the winter months? Eye doctors advise wearing sunglasses that block UV rays, so be sure to purchase a great pair of sunglasses because you'll wear it the whole year. Select a pair that is comfortable and completely shields your eyes.

Our professionals can help you to make sure you're selecting sunglasses that provide you with the best protection. 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. A good set of ski goggles with polycarbonate lenses is one way to protect your eyes from renegade branches, flying ski pole tips and other slope hazards.

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