The EyeGlass Shoppe Reminds Honolulu, HI Sun Lovers of the Importance of Wearing Sun Glasses
Here in Honolulu Hawaii, there’s plentiful sunshine. Many people enjoy it but not all are properly protecting themselves from its harmful effects. You put on sunscreen to protect your exposed skin from a burn, so why wouldn’t you also provide protection for your eyes? The EyeGlass Shoppe wants Honolulu, HI residents to understand how important it is to protect their eyes from the harmful UV rays that come with sunlight. For many prescription eyeglass wearers, wearing sunglasses can be thought of as a costly luxury they may forgo due to cost. In reality, if you wear prescription eyeglasses, you don’t have to sacrifice cool, stylish sunglasses because of high cost, especially because sunglasses do so much more than make you look good.
Years of sun exposure can have a tremendous impact on the health of your eyes and the strength of your vision. UV rays can be very damaging to the eye’s sensitive tissues. Solar radiation is extremely harmful to the retinas, creating the risk of solar retinopathy. Decades of UV sun exposure can result in cataracts, pterygium and eventual blindness. Less severe symptoms of being in the sun without protection for your eyes are squinting and straining. The results are headaches and weakening vision. To avoid these detrimental and costly problems, take the right steps to protect your eyes like you would the rest of your body.
Wearing 100% UV protective ophthalmic sunglass lenses, like those available through The EyeGlass Shoppe, is the best way to protect your eyes from sun exposure. Today, prescription and non-prescription sunglasses are available in a plethora of styles and fits for any lifestyle. Prescription eyeglass wearers needn’t forgo sun wear protection due to the need for specialized lenses. Thanks to lens material innovations, prescription sunglasses can be affordable and lightweight. For those eyeglass wearers who prefer not to switch across two pairs of glasses when they step into the sun, a photochromic lens provides the versatility of daily prescription eyewear and sun wear in the same lens. The tinting effect is automatically activated by UV light radiating from the sun.
