Should I wear sunglasses in the winter?
Here are some important reasons why it is important to always remember to wear your sunglasses – any time of the year.
- A quality pair of sunglasses are also important to block harmful UV rays from reaching your eyes. UV rays are just as harmful during the winter as they are during the summer. The same UV light that gives snowboarders and skiers “goggle tan” can cause damage to the eyes, which can also lead to macular degeneration and the progression of age related eye disease.
- Sunglasses can help prevent the symptoms associated with dry eyes during winter weather which is typically the worst time of the year for red, irritated and dry eyes.
- Sunlight reflected off snow can actually cause greater glare than any light during the summer months. Light reflecting off snow can make glare levels extremely high and hazardous, especially when operating a motor vehicle.
