Beyond Fashion: Why Wearing Sunglasses
is Crucial for Eye Safety

There are many benefits to wearing your sunglasses all year round – Here’s why protecting your eyes should be a priority

Protection from the elements

It’s not just the sun’s intense rays that sunglasses protect your eyes from. As a physical barrier, sunglasses protect from wind, blowing dust, sand, and other airborne debris that could irritate your eyes and even scratch the cornea, which could cause permanent damage.

Prevent Eye Disease

Daily exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays over the course of years will significantly increase your risk for developing cataracts, macular degeneration, or other eye conditions that can steal your vision.

Lower your risk by wearing sunglasses when you’re outside to help your eyes stay healthier, longer

Enhanced Comfort

Wearing sunglasses can make outdoor activities more comfortable by reducing squinting and eye fatigue caused by bright sunlight. Sunglasses also minimise glare from reflective surfaces like water, snow, and roads, which can improve visibility and prevent eye strain.

Protect Eyes as They Heal

Corrective eye surgeries are common these days, including LASIK or cataract surgery, but it’s important that you wear sunglasses after the procedure to help your eyes heal. Sunglasses will help protect your eyes from damage and ensure they heal smoothly and quickly.

Avoid Headaches & Migraines

Bright sunlight can cause painful headaches and migraines. To prevent this, wear high-quality sunglasses that block out sunlight. If bright light is a trigger for you, wearing sunglasses more often may help you avoid unnecessary pain and discomfort.
