Many people enjoy wearing sunglasses year round because of the fashion statement that they make. However, even though the sun’s rays do not seem as strong in winter, the truth is that they can still be very damaging for your eyes. If you want to protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun, we recommend that you wear Gardena sunglasses year round.
When you are looking for attractive and functional sunglasses to wear in winter, you should know that we offer great Gardena sunglasses at our eye care practice, Jerry Wake. Doctors will now tell you that it is important to wear sunscreen year round to help protect your skin from the sun’s rays. It is equally important to wear sunglasses year round to protect your eyes from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays.
When you are getting Gardena sunglasses, our optometrist, Jerry S. Wake, or one of our frame experts can talk to you about what type of sunglass lens will help protect your eyes from the sun. You can even get a prescription for sunglass lenses so that you can wear sunglasses all the time when outdoors or driving your car. We carry many top eyeglass brands including brands such as: Rude Project; Nice; Gucci; Prada; Michael Kors; Coach; Kate Spade; Guess; Ray-Ban; and Calvin Klein. So when you wear sunglasses in winter, why not make sure that they are more than just a fashion statement. Make sure that the lenses will protect your from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays which can cause problems for your eyes later on in life. There are certain people who are at greater risk for problems resulting from UV exposure for the eyes. These people include people who are taking certain medications, who have had cataract surgery, who have had LASIK vision correction surgery, or who have certain retinal disorders. Children also can have problems later in life from UV exposure to their eyes, so you may want to come in and get some cool sunglasses for your child to wear outdoors or when riding in the car. We hope you will stop by with your family and find some great sunglasses for all to wear in winter and year round. We look forward to seeing you at our optical boutique.
