Why You Should Wear Sunglasses!

The spring weather is upon us here in Boston and the sun is shining. Your eyes are the most important and vital organs so protect them! Here at Q Optical we have come up with 5 reasons why you should wear sunglasses!

  1. Avoid sunburn to your eyes, yes, it is possible to sunburn your eyes. Doing so can result in redness, irritation, and a gritty feeling similar to sand in the eyes.
  2. Maintaining long-term eye health. Overexposure to UV rays can lead to cataracts and glaucoma. When deciding on sunglasses try to choose a pair that screen out 75 to 90 percent of light and block at least 95 percent of UVA and 99 percent UVB radiation.
  1. Sunglasses keep you from squinting, and squinting can increase the wrinkles around your eyes to prevent wrinkles before they start.
  2. Avoiding skin cancer. Sunglasses shield you from potential skin cancer of the eyelids. The sun is even stronger in early morning and late afternoon.
  3. Looking good. What other reason do you need?
