Winter Eye Care Tips… It’s Time for Sunglasses

Yep, it's true. Sunglasses are not only an important accessory in the summer. Although most people are aware of the dangers the sun presents to our eyes during the summertime, how many recognize that it is essential to take extra care in the wintertime as well?

Actually, those ultraviolet rays that shine down on you during the summer months remain strong in the winter. And they could be a threat to your eyes' safety, especially when bounced off a bright snow-covered ground. Those of you who enjoy get-aways that involve outdoor winter sports should be especially careful if you plan to spend an extended amount of time in the intense reflected sunlight which can be damaging to the eye. It's crucial to shield your eyes from UV rays.

So what measures should you take to guard your eyes in the winter? Optometrists suggest using sunglasses with strong UV protection, so be sure to purchase a quality pair of sunglasses that is suitable for all year round. Select a pair that you find fitting and totally shields your eyes.

Our professionals can help you to make sure you're getting sunglasses that will suit your needs. Additionally, there are many different lenses available and we can help you choose the combination that is suitable for your lifestyle. Don't neglect your eyes on the ski slopes either. The right set of ski goggles with polycarbonate lenses can help protect your eyes from swinging branches, reckless ski pole tips and other slope dangers.

This winter get out those sunglasses… your eyes will feel the difference.
