Why are sunglasses also an essential winter item?

24.12.2020

WE HAVE THE ANSWER

Cold days and dreary weather may make you think that you’re safe – but, be warned – our sunny winter companion can be just as dangerous as its summer counterpart. Sunrays find it easy to reflect off snow and icy surfaces, hence increasing your exposure to UV rays up to 80%! Be honest – do you even think about putting on sunglasses when a clear sunny day breaks the winter monotony? If your answer is no, sunglasses should be the first thing you think of in the future, as they are extremely important to protect our eyes. Read on to find out why.

THEY SERVE AS PROTECTION FOR YOUR EYES

In summer, the sun visibly burns our skin (ouch). Carefree lounging on the beach may quickly change into a week of painful burns, aloe ointments, and cold showers. Feels familiar? The same can happen to you in winter, but due to thick clothes and puffy outerwear, UV rays find it hard to reach most of our body. Yet, we must still take care of our hands, face, and most importantly, eyes. Most people aren’t aware that sunscreen should be worn all year, so make sure to protect your skin from premature aging and the winter cold.
Did you know that just like your skin, your eyes can get sunburned? So if you’d like to avoid redness, itchiness, and an abundance of tears, make sure to shield your vision with a pair of quality frames. They will protect your eyes from dust and harsh winter elements, and most importantly – snow blindness.

THEY PRESERVE YOUR VISION AND TAKE CARE OF SAFETY

Since it’s so cold, it’s almost impossible to resist warming ourselves in the sun’s toasty embrace. As we spend most of our time inside, our eyes simply aren’t used to the harsh sunlight. I’m sure you’ve all experienced the feeling of stepping outside your door and being unable to really see anything for a few minutes. Such cases might even cause temporary loss of vision or blurriness. Of course, sunglasses can be a great help, making sure your vision stays sharp. Blurry vision can be especially dangerous when driving, that’s why you should make sure to always keep a pair of sunnies at hand, tucked away in your car.

THEY PREVENT DRY EYES AND UNNECESSARY STRAIN

Is lip-balm your must-have winter companion? It should be! But make sure to sunglasses to your list of essential winter accessories. The cold air can dry out your eyes, making them tired and strained, which may lead to an unpleasant headache. Always protect yourself, and don’t let the cold ruin the rare sunny winter days.
