Did you know that protecting your eyes in the sun is just as important as protecting your skin? Wearing sunglasses is a great way to protect your peepers!
Our friend Dr. Josephson, CEO, Josephson Opticians, has some helpful tips to remember when choosing sunglasses:
· Don’t assume that all dark lenses give better protection.
· Look for lenses that block 99-100% of both UVA & UVB rays.
· Make sure the lens contains polycarbonate material, which is more impact-resistant than conventional plastic lenses.
· Make sure that the frames are rounded and made of flexible material, in case of a fall.
