Why Wear Sunglasses

Sunglasses are functional and fashionable. They provide protection for your eyes against the ultraviolet(UV) radiation, bright visible light and glare. With the ozone layer depleting, exposure to the suns harmful rays are increasing. These rays are contributing to early wrinkling, cataracts, sunburn of the eye, eyelid and other forms of skin cancer. Experts also believe that over exposure to UV can damage the central retina.

Sunglasses can also provide eye protection when playing sports. For example branches and debris you don't see coming when mountain biking. Sunglasses can protect your eyes from foreign objects. Sports eyewear can save your eyes from preventable and sometimes permanent injuries.
