5 Benefits of Wearing Shades & perks of polarized lenses
#1 Protect Against Skin Cancer
While many lather on the suntan lotion, some forget their shades. Did you know that 10% of skin cancer occurs on the eyelids? Wearing a safe pair of sunglasses can help.
#2 Avoid Cataracts
Cataracts are triggered by UV exposure.
#3 Reduce the Risk of Macular Degeneration
Over time UV exposure damages the area of the eye with millions of light-sensing cells, which allows us to see fine details clearly. This can potentially lead to blurriness and vision loss.
#4 Guard Against Pterygium
“Surfer’s Eye” or Pterygium is the abnormal growth of tissue on the whites of the eye.
#5 Shield Against Photokeratitis
This is a sunburn of the eye which feels like a grain of sand in the eye. Not comfortable but will heal within forty-eight hours.
Benefits of Polarized Lenses: Invented by NASA after studying eagles’ superior vision (their natural eye oils reduce horizontal rays).
