Why You Should Wear Sunglasses No Matter The Season

Wearing sunglasses is something to do all year round, not just during the sunny summer months.

Why You Should Wear Sunglasses No Matter The Season hero image

We're in the middle of summer, and the weather is hotter than ever, therefore you may find yourself spending more time outside and in the sun which means protecting ourselves is more important than ever. One thing to always consider is protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays that can cause serious damage to your eyes.

Although we can't see Ultraviolet light, it's something that can cause serious damage to you, both short-term and long-term. The best way to prevent any damage from the sun to your eyes is a pair of sunglasses. UV light causes cells to breakdown, which in turn can cause serious vision impairment. Cataracts is a condition where your eyes become somewhat cloudy, you may start to suffer from blurred vision or doubled vision. Although cataracts becomes more of an issue when you get older, the damage starts at a young age and will eventually lead to issues if care isn't taken when you're outside and in the sun.

It is recommended that you wear a pair of sunglasses whenever you step outside in daylight as Ultraviolet rays are prominent all of the time and are strongest in the late morning and early afternoon when the sun is at it's highest point. The benefits of wearing sunglasses outweigh the effects of not wearing them, which is why we offer a wide range of brands and designs so you can find a pair of sunglasses you'll feel most comfortable and protected wearing. A popular brand we stock is Kate Spade, influenced and designed with the 1960's in mind, the Kate Spade collection is a comfy and colourful piece that stands out from the crowd.
