Everyone should have a good pair of sunglasses, from 0-100 years old. Whether you wear prescription eyeglasses or not, sunglasses are important for every age. While sunglasses may be considered a must-have fashion accessory, even more importantly, they play a critical role in protecting your eyes from UV (ultraviolet) and other harmful radiation from the sun. Diseases such as Cataracts and Macular Degeneration can worsen due to the exposure of UV light. They also shield your eyes from wind, dust and debris that could cause discomfort, dryness or damage and can help prevent the development of crows feet and wrinkles around the eyes.
Sunglasses should be worn in the winter as well as the summer and should be 100% UV blocking. This doesn’t mean that you have to pay a fortune for your shades. Even cheaper brands of sunglasses are made these days with full UV protection, so take the extra time to ensure you select ones that do offer full protection from the sun’s rays.
