How to Protect Your Eyes from Harmful UV Rays with Sunglasses

August 11, 2017

By Benefits Team

It’s Summer and you want to spend some time in the sun, but you’re worried about those harmful UV rays for your eyes.  Here are a few reminders on the importance of sunglasses.

  1. Sun Protection –purchase sunglasses marked 100% UV Protection.

  2. Barrier Protection – the more coverage from the sunglasses, the less sun damage inflicted on the eyes.

  3. Glare Reduction – light reflections can be very distracting and impede vision. Polarized sunglasses are effective at cutting glare off reflective surfaces.

  4. Vision Improvement – tinted lenses can increase contrast which is useful for athletes who play sports (e.g., baseball and golf).

  5. Protection for All – when you pick out your new shades, remember to get some for the kids as well.
