Reasons to wear sunglasses

5 Reasons why one should wear sunglasses while going outdoors!

Our eyes are delicate and sensitive. Prolonged exposure to sun, heat, ultraviolet (UV) rays and dust has a lot of harmful effects on the eyes. Light coloured eyes are especially prone to cancer-inducing harmful effects of UV rays. Hence it is important to protect your eyes from these environmental factors. But, How? The answer is wearing sunglasses while going outdoors.

  1. Block and protect your eyes from UV Rays
    Prolonged exposure to the sun can cause a variety of eye-related ailments. Long-term exposure to the sun can increase the chances of cataracts and can also worsen the symptoms of glaucoma. Sunglasses with 100% UVA and UVB protection can help in reducing the risk of cataracts or any glaucoma complications. A lot of eye cancers are UV exposure related too, more so in light coloured (blue, hazel, light brown) eyes.
  2. Shields your eyes from dust
    We all go outdoors, working and traveling which leads to exposure to particles such as dirt, sand, etc. that can cause irritation and discomfort. Sunglasses act as shields and prevent such particles from entering our eyes.
  3. Lesser exposure to the sun, lesser migraine
    Sunlight can trigger migraine and tire our eyes. Wearing shades can reduce the intensity of headaches. Sunglasses can also reduce eye fatigue so you must use them even if you do not suffer from migraine.
  4. Help to heal your eyes
    If you’ve undergone any eye procedure recently, wearing eyeglasses is a must. Doctors recommend wearing a pair after the procedure. Complications can occur if proper post-surgical care isn’t practiced. You must ensure wearing glasses as it helps to heal while your eyes adjust to the vision.
  5. They are affordable, easy and stylish
