Sunglasses

If you spend any time outdoors, it's important to protect your eyes from the elements. When you are outside, wear sunglasses to keep the elements out. Eyeglasses can offer some protection, but you need sunglasses when the sun is out. Regardless of the season. At World of Vision, we have helped residents of Vero Beach, FL select the perfect pair of sunglasses for many years.

Sunglasses and UV Rays

Sunglasses come with a coating that allows them to keep 99% to 100% of UV rays from reaching your eyes. UV rays can cause several serious eye conditions. These include both cataracts and macular degeneration. Both of these conditions can greatly affect your eyesight. The eyes can even become sunburnt due to UV rays. Whether you wear contacts or eyeglasses, you need a pair of sunglasses as well. Getting prescription sunglasses can make wearing them easier for those who require corrective eyewear.

The Wind

The wind is another force that can be harmful to your eyes. Whether you are simply walking outside or you do something active outdoors, wind can dry out your eyes. Exposure to the air causes the eyes' tear film to evaporate faster, leading to dry eye syndrome. When your eyes get dry, they can turn red, become crusty, hurt, sting, and burn. Sunglasses keep most of the wind from getting to your eyes to allow them to retain more of their tear film. More tear film means eyes that are better lubricated and far more comfortable. 

Debris

When the wind is blowing, it can blow up debris from various sources. This debris can get into your eyes and cause scratches. Scratches on your cornea can be very painful and even require medical intervention. Even though they are tiny, the debris that blows around can be harmful to your eyes, and sunglasses can block it. It's a good idea to wear sunglasses any time that you are outside. This is especially true if you are running or biking.

Schedule an Appointment with Our Optician in Vero Beach

To get prescription sunglasses, you will need to undergo an eye exam to make sure your prescription is up-to-date. If you wear contacts, wearing non-prescription sunglasses works as well. For more information on the benefits of wearing sunglasses or to schedule an appointment with our optician, call World of Vision today at (772) 562-2020
