Get Outside with Sun Protection for Your Eyes
A bright, sunny day may seem like a miracle sometimes in Portland. It’s enough to lift your spirits and get you outside while the clouds are absent. As much as your eyes may love seeing the sun, they don’t love the silent damage it does.
Sunglasses Give Your Eyes Longevity
Sunglasses offer your eyes protection from the harmful UV rays which contribute to cataracts. Sun damage also causes retinal issues and can even sunburn your cornea, called photokeratitis.
How to Choose Sunglasses
Beyond looking great, sunglasses should have a UV 400 rating. This designation means the glasses block UV rays as small as 400 nanometers. You should also choose lenses that block 75% to 90% of visible light. Polarized lenses are a great option for those who wish to use sunglasses while playing outdoor water sports.
Anyone who wears prescription glasses knows the woes of squinting on sunny or glaring days. Luckily, we offer prescription sunglasses and transition lenses that darken when exposed to light. We also offer clip-on or wraparound glasses that work as an extension to your own glasses.
