Sunglasses in the Winter. Why it Matters To Your Eye Health.

Do you keep it shady when the Winter season comes?  Or, do you put your sunglasses away until the hotter temperatures come back?  Well, today let us look at why it is important to keep your sunglasses around even during the cold season.  

Why is this needed?  Well let us look at three reasons that impact the importance of shading your eyes in the Winter Season.

  1. Remember that hole we have in the Ozone layer? Well, that hole provides us less protection in the shield that filters UV Rays. 
  2. Solar radiation, no matter what season, is present in our environments throughout the year.  So, even though the sun sits lower in the sky in the winter months, the UV Rays are still pretty intense.  Matter fact, in some cases, the winter months can actually bring risk of double exposure to UV rays. 
  3. Sunlight is tricky when it bounces off wet and icy surroundings. It produces a glare, which in turn doubles our exposure to those harmful UV rays. 

Even when it is a cloudy day, you still should cover up those beauties because UV Rays can be just as dangerous on a not so sunny day. According to the World Health's Organization, 90% of UV Rays can penetrate light cloud coverage.  

Here at sunsetwild, we offer sunglasses that are eco-friendly, made with sustainable materials and offering you protection from UV Rays.  Below, are a few ideas for shading your beautiful eyes from those harmful UV Rays.  You may enjoy the look of the Lakefront l Rosegold Sunglasses, or maybe the Crescent City l Havana Sunglasses, or even the Crescent City l Pearl Tortoise Sunglasses.
