With the start of summer, comes many trips to the beach and days filled with fun in the sun. Everyone talks about the importance of sunscreen and protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays. While that is still important, you can't forget to protect your eyes!
How the sun affects your eyes?
The sun's rays can cause damage to the sensitive cells of the eyes. The sun rays aren't the only thing that causes damage. The glare that is caused by the sun is harmful as well. Glare is caused by the reflection of the sun's rays on surfaces that keep the eye from properly focusing light onto your retina. Most sunglasses don't offer protection against the glare.
How polarized sunglasses work?
Polarized sunglasses have a chemical filter that protect your eyes from UVA and UVB rays. How this filter works is by delaying the glare from straining your eyes. Horizontal rays are absorbed while vertical rays are passed through. In turn, glare is reduced. Polarized sunglasses also improve visibility and protection while outdoors.
Here at Biscayners, we understand the importance of polarized sunglasses. Biscayners offers a wide variety of polarized sunglasses that are stylish and classic. So take your pick and make sure to prevent sun damage while having fun this summer!
