Sunglasses are so important to protect your eyes. Spending time outside without sunglasses can damage your eyes. You need sunglasses with the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays shining down on your eyes. UV rays can sunburn your eyes and potentially cause cataracts. Sunglasses use a special lens coating to block all UV rays coming in. Get better sunglasses by getting polarized lenses. These glasses have another special coating that gives you more benefits.
You know everyone looks cool in sunglasses! You need them for your style almost as much as your eye health. Chapel Hills Vision Clinic in Colorado Springs, CO, can help with a new prescription when you need sunglasses.
One of the most common reasons people get polarized lenses is that they reduce glare. When you're outdoors, anything smooth can cause a glare. Glare occurs when the sun bounces off a smooth surface. The light is then scattered in several directions. When this happens, it makes a sharp light glare that can blind you for a minute.
Glare makes it so hard to see that it might be considered dangerous. There are multiple places to see glares, such as cars, water, and snow can create glares. Polarized lenses block some light rays, so only certain ones come through. This can make driving and skiing safer.
These sunglasses don't just cut through the glare. They sharpen your vision. They make the colors you see deeper and more beautiful. Things pop more than ever before. You'll see things that you couldn't without these lenses. The coating also cuts through haze and lets you see more. Wearing them will let you see faint rainbows and things that wouldn't be visible through normal smog and mist. Sunglasses can be fun to wear and safe. When you choose your sunglasses, ask for polarized lenses. They'll make things look more vivid and clear. With all the snow, it's always a good idea to see as well as possible when driving or biking.
