Polarized Sunglasses. Did you know that 7 out of every 10 adults will develop a sun-related disorder in their lifetime? Everyday exposure to sunlight can cause your eyes to age prematurely. Everyday exposure also increases the risk for eyelid cancer, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
UV sunlight reflects off bright surfaces, including the ground, and causes glare. Reflected glare distorts colors, blurs images, and overall makes seeing more difficult.
So the question is how can this be prevented? The best way to protect your eyes is with a quality pair of polarized sunglasses. Polarized lenses block UV rays as well as non-UV rays, providing the most complete protection form damaging sunlight. This helps reduce the incidence of certain eye diseases. They also block horizontal light rays that cause glare. Quality polarized lenses enrich vision with truer colors and sharper images!
