Sunglasses not just for looking cool.

Besides making you look super cool, can sunglasses really make a difference in both your vision and your eye health? The answer can depend on what kind of lenses are in the sunglasses you wear. If the lenses offer maximum protection from dangerous Ultra violet rays, then the answer is yes!

But let’s examine the situation more closely. First, there are two types of ultra-violet rays: UV-A and UV-B. Both types of ultraviolet rays are types of radiation.

Just as the sun’s radiation can do damage to your skin, it can also do damage to your eyes.

Using the UV index is a great way to rate the effectiveness of the lenses in sunglasses to find out whether or not you’re getting the maximum protection that your eyes actually need to guard against the harmful rays of the sun. So you can keep your eyes safe and look cool at the same time.
