Winter Eye Care Advice… Don’t Forget your Sunglasses

You read correctly. Sunglasses are not just an important accessory in the summer. Although many people are aware of the dangers the sun presents to our eyes in the summertime, we don't all realize that it is essential to take precautions in the winter as well.

In reality, the ultraviolet rays that beat down on you during the warm season are still around in the winter. And they pose a problem to your eyes, particularly when bounced off a bright snow-covered ground. Those of you who love vacations that involve outdoor winter sports should be extra cautious because you'll spend an extended amount of time in the intense reflected sunlight which is potentially harmful to the eye. It's very important to guard your eyes from UV rays.

So what measures should you take to protect your eyes in the winter months? Eye doctors advise wearing sunglasses with strong UV protection, so ensure that you invest in a quality pair of sunglasses because you'll wear it the entire year. Purchase a pair that is fitting and completely protects your eyes.

Our professionals can help you to make sure you're selecting sunglasses that will suit your needs. In addition, there are many options for lenses and we are here to help you choose the combination that suits your lifestyle. Don't neglect your eyes on the ski slopes either.
