The winter is in full swing. However spring and summer will be here before we know it. If you are someone who only likes to wear sunglasses during the warmer months you may want to change your habits. It is now proven by many eye safety studies, that it is important to wear Staten Island sunglasses year-round.
Our eye care practice is Focused Vision Care. Our highly skilled and knowledgeable optometrist is Dr. Jyotsna Jain. She knows the importance of wearing sunglasses year-round to protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun. Even in the winter months the sun’s UVA and UVB rays can be causing eye damage. Eye damage will not be immediate, but can contribute to later cases of cataracts and even macular degeneration. For this reason we recommend that our patients and customers wear sunglasses whenever they are outdoors or driving. Some people prefer to wear regular sunglasses, especially if they wear contact lenses. While other patients prefer to get prescription Staten Island sunglasses.
In order for your sunglasses to provide you with total eye care protection, they need to be able to block out 100% of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. When you come to our optical store for sunglasses, our frame experts will be able to let you know which sunglasses will provide that protection for you. If you cannot find any that you like, our optician will be able to create a pair of sunglasses for you that provide the eye safety that you need. There are many different lenses that prescription sunglasses can have that will benefits your vision while you are driving, or simply being outdoors. Polarized lenses help you see clearly in bright sunlight. They make it possible for your eyes to continue to see color contrast, even when the sun is strong. And, we also offer protective sunglasses lenses which will keep out all of the sun’s harmful rays. Frames that offer the most complete eye care are wraparound frames because they keep the sun from coming in on the sides of glasses. However you will also want to make sure that your new Staten Island sunglasses frames are safe for driving in.
