Protect Your Eyes In Style
Shades can make anyone look their best when enjoying time outdoors, but sunglasses are more than just style. Downtown Eyes recommends that everyone wear sunglasses to protect their eyes in the summer and winter! Not only can a quality pair of prescription sunglasses protect the skin around the eyes from the sun’s harmful rays, but they can keep a number of harmful eye conditions at bay as well. By not wearing a good pair of sunglasses, exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can lead to:
- → Cataracts- clouding of the natural lens which leads to blurry vision
- → Pterygium- a growth of tissue that can extend across the pupil and cause blurred vision
- → Macular degeneration- a degenerative condition affecting the central part of the retina (the macula) that may result in the permanent loss of central vision
- → Skin cancer- the thin tissue around your eyes are extremely vulnerable to damaging UV rays from the sun which is why skin cancer on or around the eyelid is so common
Thankfully, Downtown Eyes has you and your eyes covered. We pride ourselves on using cutting-edge technology and high-quality lenses with UVA and UVB protection to keep your eyes happy and healthy.
