Today it is widely agreed upon by members of the medical community that it is important that people wear sunglasses year-round in order to protect their eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. At our vision practice, Jerry Wake, patients are able to purchase Willowbrook sunglasses which provide them with the best UV protection around.
It is important for patients to wear sunglasses year-round which protect them from 100% of the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. At our vision practice, patients are able to buy Willowbrook sunglasses which contain lenses which will offer this type of eye protection. Our optometrist, Dr. Jerry S. Wake, will be happy to talk to you about the reasons why it is so important that you wear sunglasses year-round to protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. Although the effects of sun exposure to the eyes are not immediately noticeable, overexposure to the sun’s UVA and UVB rays has been connected with the development of cataracts and macular degeneration for some patients later in life. For this reason, it is important that patients wear sunglasses year-round whenever they are outside, or even when driving in their car; this is because your windshield will not be able to screen out the harmful rays. Some of our patients even choose to purchase wraparound sunglasses which will also block out the sun’s rays in the area that often exists between eyeglasses and the side of the face. It is also important for children to wear sunglasses whenever they are outside. In fact, studies have shown that child’s eyes receive over 80% of their total exposure to the sun’s UVA and UVB rays by the time they reach age 18. At our vision practice, you will also be able to choose from a great selection of designer sunglasses, so you can protect your eyes and be totally fashionable at the same time.
