While it is fun to throw on a pair of flirty sunglasses to go to the beach, sunglasses are not just a fun accessory. Sunglasses are an essential tool for maintaining eye health.
Sunglasses offer comfort and protection to glaucoma sufferers and can help prevent the development of other serious eye conditions. Macular degeneration and cataracts can be caused or made worse by repeated exposure to UVA and UVB rays. According to the National Eye Institute, “Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in the United States.”
While those who need prescription lenses can’t purchase sunglasses off the rack at the local drug store, glasses wearers do have some options. Prescription sunglasses, clip-ons, and transition lenses most often come to mind, but each has drawbacks. Prescription sunglasses are costly and must be changed every time a prescription is updated. Clip-ons are the least fashionable option and can be flimsy, particularly the plastic styles. Transition lenses are not recommended for driving since car windshields block the UV rays which trigger transition lenses to darken. Additionally, none of these options provides total protection. Prescription sunglasses, clip-ons, and transition lenses only block the rays coming in through the front of the lens, and do nothing for sun exposure from the side.
Luckily Fitovers Sunglasses address all of these drawbacks while offering comfort and style for those needing corrective lenses.
