Whether it be a bright snowy day in December or a heat wave in July, it’s important to remember that sunglasses will not only protect your eyes but prevent other vision and head related issues.

Our eyes are very sensitive to light, and sometimes the sun can severely damage different functions in our eyes. Sunglasses can also help with daily activities such as driving and can help you read if there is too much glare in your area.

Pick your sunglasses with some style in mind, as you should be wearing them almost daily. Even on cloudy days the sun’s rays can penetrate the thick clouds, so think of them as just another accessory to wear, but one that helps keep your vision at the best it can be.

Here are 3 reasons why sunglasses are important:

Here are 10 facts about your eyes:

1. UV Rays

While soaking in some sun is not only healthy for your skin and body, it can lift your mood as well, however, too much sunlight in your eyes can be damaging, especially over an entire lifetime. Sunglasses block UV Ray’s from entering your eyes. These UV rays can be responsible for cataracts, glaucoma, and other eye diseases in the future.

2. Migraines & Headaches

Bright sunny days can also cause headaches and migraines after extended exposure to the sun, and wearing sunglasses will prevent this. Children are especially susceptible to eye damage from extended exposure, so make sure your kids are outfitted in their favourite pair of sunglasses!

3. Driving

Polarised sunglasses are also a very big help when driving. Light reflecting off of cars, road signs, and glass buildings can cause huge spouts of glare that can in some cases temporarily blind you, which is the last thing you want when driving. Wearing sunglasses completely rids of this risk, and you’ll have your vision to rely on at any point in time to get you to your destination.
