FAQs: SUNGLASSES +
Most people are aware of how harmful UV radiation is to the skin. However, few realize that UV radiation can harm the eyes, and other elements of solar radiation can affect vision.
There are 3 types of UV radiation: UVA, UVB, and UVC. UVA & some UVB rays penetrate the ozone layer and reach the earth's surface, making it necessary to protect your eyes from them. UVC rays are absorbed by the ozone layer and do not present any threat.
Don't assume that cheap sunglasses provide a high level of protection, even if a sticker on the lenses says "blocks UV." They might not shield your eyes from the sun's harmful UV rays that can cause long-term eye damage and even permanent vision loss. If you do buy an inexpensive pair of glasses, it's a good idea to have them tested by your optometrist.
The tint of the lens has nothing to do with the UV protection of the glasses. A clear lens with no tint and 100% UV protection is better for your eyes than dark, heavily tinted sunglasses without UV protection.
These are the most important factors to consider when purchasing sunglasses for sun protection:
- 100% UV protection
- Bigger is better. Make sure the whole eye is shielded
- Darker lenses don't necessarily offer better protection
- Lens color doesn't affect UV protection
- Polarized lenses shield glare, but not UV rays
While some contact lenses provide UV protection, they don't cover your whole eye, so you still need sunglasses. Look for sunglasses that offer 99-100% of both UVA and UVB protection. This includes those labeled "UV 400," which blocks all light rays with wavelengths up to 400 nanometers.
