Winter Eye Care Tips… It’s Time for Sunglasses

Yep, it's true. Sunglasses are not only an essential accessory in the summer. While many of us are aware of the dangers the sun presents to our eyes in the summer, how many of us realize that we need to take precautions in the winter months as well?

In reality, the ultraviolet rays that shine down on you in the summer months are still around in the winter. And they could be a threat to your eyes, especially when reflected off a bright snow-covered ground. Those of you who enjoy get-aways that include snow-based activities should be especially careful because you'll spend an extended amount of time in the intense reflected sunlight which can be damaging to the eye. It's very important to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.

So what's the optimal way to safeguard your eyes in the cold season? Optometrists advise using sunglasses that block UV rays, so be sure to invest in a great pair of sunglasses that is suitable for all year round. Select a pair that you find fitting and totally protects your eyes.

Our professionals can assist you to ensure you're getting sunglasses that will suit your needs. In addition, there are many different lenses available and we can help you select the combination that fits your lifestyle. Don't neglect your eyes on the slopes either. The right set of ski goggles with polycarbonate lenses can help defend your eyes from renegade branches, flying ski pole tips and other slope dangers.

This winter make sure you sport your shades... you will see the difference.
