Quality Sunwear

Prescription Sunglasses

Full sun protection for your eyes

Ultraviolet radiation is emitted by the sun and artificial sources such as tanning beds, lasers, and welding machines.

There are three types of UV radiation: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation has adverse long and short term effects on your eyes and vision. If you are exposed while unprotected to excessive amounts of UV radiation over a short period of time, you are likely to experience photokeratitis which has symptoms of pain, tearing and extreme light sensitivity.

Long term exposure to any type of radiation can cause more serious damage including cancer, cataracts, macular degeneration, and retinal damage.

The damage to the retina is irreversible.

Polarized Sunglasses

Quality sunglasses have lenses that block 100% of the UV-A, UV-B and UV-C radiation while providing clear and distortion free vision. They should screen out 70-90% of visible light. Just like everyone wears sunscreen for the skin, make sure to wear sunglasses to prevent damage to your eyes.

Polarized lenses have a special chemical applied to them to filter light. Polarized sunglasses remove 99.9% of all direct and reflected light glare from all angles and reduce eye strain, thus improving vision and safety in the sun. High quality sunwear provides 100% full protection from all types of UV radiation that never wears off.

Cheap Sunglasses Can Harm Your Eyes

Poor quality sunglasses block some but not all UV light. Stickers on glasses that say “100% UV block” do not indicate which type of UV is blocked or for how long. In some cases, these sunglasses can block 100% UV-A, but 0% for UV-B or UV-C.

Most of these sunglasses have UV coating sprayed on which can be washed off after the first few times you clean the sunglasses. Cheap sunglasses do not filter out direct or reflected glare creating a visual distortion that decreases your clarity of vision and can cause eye strain.
