The sun is shining and although it is beautiful and warm, we need to protect our eyes from those UV rays! UV rays are what tan our skin in the sun, but they also affect the cornea, lens, iris, retina and related epithelial and conjunctival tissues. UVR damage is cumulative and permanent. Wearing a good pair of polaroid sunglasses can help protect your eyes from the damage caused by these rays while you’re enjoying the sunshine. Children can be at particular risk as they have larger pupils, have clearer lenses and they tend to spend more time outdoors without protection. Don’t worry, this is easily avoidable as we carry a range of kids and adult sunglasses in store.
