Keep Your Eyes Healthy, Wear Sunglasses
Travel gadget that many do not think about until it hits them in the eyes, is sunglasses. Sunglasses’ most important job is to protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. These days most sunglasses are high-tech accessory compared to the glasses of the past. Even lower priced sunglasses provide UV protection. And these are also lighter, better fitting, and come in a lot of various styles.
Sun’s effects on the eyes include:
Protect from other elements as well:
You might be surprised to know that spending time in the snow can be very damaging to your eyes. Snow reflects 80% of UV rays from the sun and can cause a condition known as snow blindness, where glare from the sun actually burns the cornea.
If you’re skiing, climbing snowy mountains or spending time in the snow (at any time of year), wear sunglasses or ski goggles with UV protection. Make sure they cover and protect the bottom of your eyes, because of the reflective nature of the snow.
Sand, Wind, and Dust
Getting sand in your eyes can be very painful and dangerous. Tiny grains of sand can actually scratch your eye and can cause permanent damage. Sunglasses that fully cover your eyes are a great way to keep sand out. Good to have on the beach, sand dunes, and other destinations with drifting sand.
Bright sunlight can be a trigger for migraines and headaches. Wearing sunglasses can help reduce both the frequency and intensity of these painful occurrences. And even if you’re not a headache or migraine sufferer, wearing sunglasses when out in the sun can help reduce eyestrain and fatigue.
When driving into bright sunlight, sunglasses can definitely help you see better and drive more comfortably. Also spending just two or three hours in bright sunlight can hamper the eyes’ ability to adapt quickly to nighttime or indoor light levels. This can make driving at night after spending a day in the sun more hazardous.
