Get Your Sunglasses from Our Yardley, PA Optometrist
You probably already know how important it is to wear sunscreen when you’re going to be exposed to the harsh rays of the sun, but did you know your eyes need protection too? Wearing sunglasses will help you protect your eyes and ensure your ocular health. You should keep a pair of sunglasses in your purse to ensure you always have them on hand when you need them.
Keeping Your Eyes Safe from UV Rays
At Yardley Eye Care, Dr. Brian Cohen and his team are devoted to helping patients keep their healthy vision and care for vision issues. Our team has years of experience providing eye care to patients who live in Yardley, PA and neighboring cities. We often educate our patients on the dangers of UV rays and the importance of wearing sunglasses.
Ultraviolet rays omit 2 types of rays that penetrate the earth’s atmosphere. UVA and UVB rays are highly damaging to unprotected eyes. Over-exposure to UV rays can lead to severe vision issues, such as cataracts. It can also lead to permanent damage to your retinas or a painful condition called photokeratitis.
Benefits of Wearing Polarized Lenses
Wearing ‘just any’ sunglasses isn’t enough to protect you from the sun’s harmful UV rays. It’s important that your sunglasses have polarized lenses. Polarizes lenses provide 99% more protection against UVA and UVB rays. When purchasing sunglasses, you should keep an eye out for a sticker that says “UV400”. This means that the sunglasses can block UV rays down to 400 nanometers.
Polarized sunglasses also help cut down glare drastically because they have protective lenses that will filter out 75 to 90% of visible light. Our team has years of experience helping our patients find the most suitable eye protection for their lifestyle, and we’ll be happy to do the same for you!
If you wear contacts or need special prescription sunglasses, we can help you too. We can help you find sunglasses that will compliment your contacts or we can help you choose prescription glasses that will automatically darken into sunglasses in the presence of sunlight.
We carry the most popular brands, such as Polaroid, Costa, Maui Jim, Rudy Project, Suntrends, and much more!
